One of my favourite things is drawing while the sun rises with my window wide open so I hear when the birds wake up and start to peep and hop about on my roof.
I’ve been working two other rough sketches for more large scale drawings to go with the previous one I posted earlier this week. This is one. Changing things up for this series. Finally, someone with their eyes open!? And maybe, JUST MAYBE I will draw a guy.
I never draw boys because they always end up looking overly feminine.
This should be interesting.

OKAY because I can’t contain myself anymore. Sneak preview of a huge drawing I’m doing. This is only about 1/3rd of it.
I get too inspired and then I can’t sleep, so I worked all night and morning on this section because I’m having so much fun. I think I was destined to do large-scale. On top of that for the entire piece I’m ONLY using my tiniest nib! That’s love my friends.
But alas, I must go for a nap.
I was playing around on THIS online drawing thinger. It’s good fun! Try it out!
Pretty much anything you do looks proper bad-ass.
Working on that large-scale drawing I mentioned earlier tonight and watching The Virgin Suicides. I’ve made a lot more progress since this, but I’m almost too excited about this drawing to reveal too much! I’ve gotten a few asks for a series of progress photos for a project. I’ve been taking photos in progress of this one, and I’ll make a big post once it’s finished I think.
For now all you’ll get is secret sneak peeks!!

I watercoloured another ‘Soft Anatomy’ Print! This is the original 10.5” x 13.5” large print, only 1 available! There are also 3 non-coloured ones left!
Get it HERE.
I like the way my colours are never perfect or true. If I don’t wash it, then, say when I’m mixing a green, it has tiny bits of red undertone and all of these beautiful browns and blues on the edges. Also, because every colour has pretty much every other colour in it because it has gradually been mixed in, the entire palette is unified so colours never look bad beside eachother.
I hope that makes sense. It just makes for unique colours that are so far from the colours in the tube of paint.
One watercolour brush and I never wash my pallet.

Something made me think of this, and I wanted to share! This is a clay bust I made in grade 11 art class of the one and only Salvador Dali.
I ended up painting my favourite painting of his, ‘The Meditative Rose’ right on top of his face!

For a friend of mine. He’s a big fan of tattoos, babes, and babes with tattoos.
You’ll be seeing more of this kind of thing in the future!
