The art was all in my head yesterday, and not on the page, so this is a day late. I’m actually excited about the #Storystorm idea here–the goat is not at the center of the story, but I have little practice drawing goats, so needed to do some research.
This one took a left turn, so I’ll have to think about it a bit.
This #Storystorm idea generated several images–this one is almost a match for what was in my head, which is rare. The problem is, I think the real estate of a traditional picture book is not a good fit: I see a tiny book around the size of the Warne editions of Peter Rabbit.
This #Storystorm idea turned out to be pretty much just two characters talking to each other. I couldn’t come up with an interesting way to frame it that would be fun to draw, so I did what I do sometimes, I started drawing a character and let the pose evolve. Whether this helps the idea, or sets off in another direction, I can’t tell yet.
Any time I can work a Golden Retriever in, that’s a good thing. And for this #Storystorm idea, it actually makes sense! I think this goes in the WIP file.
Aaaannd, we’re halfway through the #sketchsquall challenge!
This #Storystorm idea is semi-autobiographical. That’s me, bad haircut and all. 🙂
I’m thinking of revising #Storystorm idea 13 to feature this little guy, who appeared after a frustrating day of trying to draw *other* cats.
One comment on my 2020 post for #Storystorm said I should do something with the squirrels–which I thought was a good idea. But it’s been several years since I drew those little fellows, and I wasn’t sure I remembered how to draw them (!), so it took some time to get back into the squirrel vibe. Not the best excuse, but it’s all I have. 🙂
This #Storystorm idea needs a retro look, so I’ve been steeping myself in the paintings of Disney artist Mary Blair. I’m finding it hard to get the shapes right–but looking forward to adding color, either by collage or paint . . . and that’s something I very rarely say!
Not feeling this one.
