So over the weekend I sat down to draw and stuff came out! Yay!! I thought it would never happen, haha.. This first one is inspired by the season change, it's so pretty outside.
And some animal drawings that crack me up a little.
A jackrabbit with quite the smile...
and a bear...getting ready for a picnic that he didn't steal.
as if I don't draw enough bunnies and bears at work.
I have also been watching The Grizzly Man Diaries-so awesome.
Here's a poster I did for the Theater On Main for a play called "Halloween Dreams." It's about an axe murderer that harasses a town on Halloween night. It was a fun project, I wanted the poster to be more about the type since there was so much copy to put in, so I kept the illy simple and did some hand lettering. They chose a black version of this, but I posted the purple because I liked it a little more. Anyway, still not drawing too much personal work, Scoot and I have been making 3D stuff, I will post them soon..
On another note, I am officially an employee at Carter's! Yayyyy! I was so excited, it was a lot of work to get the hang of working how they do, and I finally got it. They had a meeting to announce it, and it felt like I was being knighted, haha, you are now part of the giant baby kingdom!...now I need a sword.
So Scott had been playing with my kneaded eraser a lot lately, and he loved it. So last weekend we went and bought a bunch of clay to play around with. The top creatures are Scott's and the bottom is mine. I was so excited to see what he came up with and I thought they were hilarious, I love them! The middle green guy is my favorite. He's making more, soon we will have a shelf of them, haha. It is hard to make stuff out of clay-I have crazy respect for sculptors. The ear fell off of my elephant thing, so I put some gauze on it, I figured it gave him a little story. It was weird that Scott wanted to get clay because Kyler's dad had shown me how he did his pottery(excellent) which made me really interested, but I never thought was going to be able to play with it so soon. What a blast it is to make things three dee!
Note: Knowing how to draw does not make sculpting easier, haha.
This weekend was sweet. Scoot took some pictures of our adventure to a state park called Panola Mountain, where we followed a winding trail to a giant rockside. The atmosphere felt really huge, like that feeling you get when you look at a tall building. The first pic is of a lake near the granite rock, where little old men were piddling with their fishing poles. It was really peaceful because of the openness if it all. The were cattails aligning the lake and lots of little bugs chirping. The next is the giant rockside, it had a lot of fallen trees and wild berries around it. The last pic is an outhouse we found in the middle of a giant field, which was very amusing. I guess you do have to use the restroom out in the middle of nowhere, and they thought of that. I think Scoot and I are old at heart, we also went putt-putting this weekend, one of our favorite things to do. I won, but we were both way over par. Just out of the groove, thats all,haha.
I am taking a much needed break from making personal art! I have been drawing non-stop these last couple of months and my batteries are dead. I need to refuel, eat my life veggies, and enjoy some other things for a while.
In the mean time I will still be working on Sarah Squared, and I may post stuff here that I find or want to share relating to everyday life.
Hope everyone is well. Fall is blessing Atlanta with a cool breeze. Some leaves are beginning to fall, making a normal walk in the park sound like eating a bowl of rice crispies.
