Heather's Brooch

It's time for Halloween and I'm dressing up as Heather number one from the 1989 film, Heathers. I'm quite proud of my costume, I even found red culottes! This is the brooch for the neck of my blouse. I did not, however, find a red croquet mallet. Oh damn! I'm getting ready to go out so I didn't spend too much time on this drawing btw.

Jack O' Lanturn

This one was carved by Kana. It has a bunch of Magnolia leaves on it's head.
It was a lot of space to cover with my little pen tip.

Momo and Cheena

This one is from a photo of the two great cats of J&N. They like to get close. I think that's Momo's paw there.

the roundest uncarved pumpkin

My roommates and friends carved pumpkins while I drew one. I started to draw the light source that shined straight down on it's little round self but then changed my mind. Happy Halloween!

Kitty getting nutty

hi guys,
I drew this yesterday but forgot to post it. Kitty had just had a long toke of her catnip cigar and was getting crazy.

another pear

Talking to my roommates while drawing this one. sorry the picture isn't better. It's too dark in here I think. Maybe I'll take a better photo tomorrow when the sun comes out. Or is it going to rain? That's what I hear.

start of a drawing at work

I started this one today while at lunch at work. I picked a bit of plant from the (Buddliea ? ) bush in the parking lot and started drawing it on a post-it while my coworkers ate and watched me. My indian pizza was waiting for me.
It is way past my bedtime... I went to see Jonsi tonight with Amy and Leah. Wow. That was really cool! check this out:

Little Shell

Sunday. Went for a nice little ride in the rain and mud today with my girls Amanda and Leah. Fun. We rode each other's bikes to compare. The one made by Cameron is pretty awesome! wow! Can I have just one more bike?

I guess it's starting to be more like every other day that I post a drawing. Blerg! I will make more of an effort. I didn't spend too much time on this one...

My friend Amanda brought this cool amulet back from Thailand for me. I love it.
Its gold and holds a little gold statue of the Buddha.

btw: just because I may be getting better doesn't mean every drawing is going to be a winner. I'm posting them anyway. Also, I realize I haven't always been making a drawing every single day. Remember, I never said I would exactly. I said every day or so. Isn't that what I said? I must go back and check.

Lady Riding the Cat!

Hello. Here is the cat again with his friend the bikini-clad woman with blue hair. Sorry it looks like it's floating there, but I did spend a bit of time on it.

This one's for you, Genghis!

I tried to draw a couple things and was not feelin' it. This tack was sitting on my desk and I tried that. It's late.

Bumble bee

My dad found this (dead) bumble bee in his back yard and gave it to me. It was in a tiny plastic container safely nestled in cotton and stored alternately in my freezer or refrigerator for several years. A few weeks ago I finally pinned it and put it in my insect collection. Here he or she is.

John Muir Laws Beetle

This is a copy of a drawing from John Muir Laws' book: Laws Field Guide to the Sierra Nevada.
A really great book with over 2700 drawings in it of plants and animals up there in the Sierras.

This is the Elderberry Beetle, Desmocerus auripennis (female). It is red and violet. cool!

Guy on the shuttle

It was tough to draw this guy's head when he kept looking around...and it was a bumpy ride today. I know, excuses excuses...

roll of tape

This one I did while watching a movie: Wilde about Oscar Wilde. it was ok. second half was better than the first. very bitter sweet ending. He was cool. The only thing I've ever read of his I think is The Importance of Being Earnest which was made into a very bad movie not too long ago. Think I'll try something else.

kitty again

Reena looks a bit strange today. sorta has a squinty eye and tiny feet! but I like it that way.
mostly spent the day painting. wish I didn't have to sit so much. Heard it was really bad for you.
Oh well! I take lots of breaks.
