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. 🙂
Not feeling this one.
I shared this sketch in my #Storystorm post–revised only a little for today’s #sketchsquall, but it’s a significant change [hello, Mr. Wolf!] and I’ve been working on words!
