Today seems like a good day to avoid the holiday busy-ness by staying home to draw.  Lately I've been working on loosening up my line work.  Unfortunately, Mr. Pants is unimpressed. 

I hope that your holiday preparations are going well.  And I hope that your kitty is more appreciative of your artistic attempts than mine is.  Enjoy your weekend!

Hoping for snow...

Hello and Happy Wednesday to you!  I always like seeing how other people work so I thought I'd share a few process photos of one of yesterday's warm-up sketches.  For the ink outline I use FW Acrylic Artists Ink and for the gray background wash in the last photo I used ArtGraf watercolor graphite. 

The cold snap we had in Colorado a few weeks ago is officially over and now it feels far too much like spring.  This little curly haired gal and I are hoping we'll have some fresh snow soon.

Fire & Bone on Kickstarter...

My brother, Christopher, and two of his friends recently launched a campaign on Kickstarter called Fire & Bone.  After less than a week they've received over $90,000 in pledges, much more than their original request of $8,000.  The tiny bronze and silver skull pendants that they make are really amazing (I have one of their white bronze fox skulls and I love it!).

Check out their Kickstarter campaign if you'd like to get in on the action, or just to see what my talented big brother is up to. 

Fire & Bone is adding a wolf skull to their collection and I did this drawing for their site.
