Quarterly Meeting

This meeting was especially I sat and sketched as I usually do. My co workers next to me always try to figure out what I am drawing before I am done. I did this in black and white then added then color later. I scanned it first, just in case the color didn't work so well.

red pears and a dog toy

I did these right before my trip. They are in the sketchbook I just finished, so I forgot to post them. Abby started playing with the toy which made me remember.

Bottom of my closet

I sat on the floor last night after a frustrating day and started to draw this. I'm not super ecstatic about the results but the act of making it made the day end well.


I went out to the car during lunch the other day since it was so sunny out. This leaf has been stuck in my windshield wiper for over a week. It makes a annoying noise as it hits the windshield. But I have not moved it, I think I'll just wait to see how it falls out.

Sketched at a registration meeting this evening. I'm glad I added this little sketchbook to my bag.

My desk chair/ EDM# 30

This is what my desk chair usually looks like. A pile of (sometimes folded) laundry on top. I've been trying to keep it clear but somehow it doesn't work. I don't like putting my clothes away every day and the apartment is so small there's no where else for it to go. So tonight it serves as the subject for my sketch!

I've been tagged by Meinhild so here goes...

7 things about myself

1. I am overly protective about my writing /drawing utensils....everyone knows it too!
I take them to and from work with me and get oddly uncomfortable when people try and use them. In my defense, they are fountain pens and the nibs can be temperamental/sensitive. :)

2. I make songs up all the time. About anything or nothing. I usually use the music from an existing song that I've heard or thought of and change all the words. Even if I try not to sing , i catch myself doing it.

3. I did a 400 mile bike ride from Montreal Canada to Portland Maine. It was one of the most amazing things ever.

4. I started swimming so I can try a triathlon. Crazily I would love to complete an iron man.

5. I've always wanted to drive cross country.

6. I LOVE chocolate and have no problem eating some first thing in the morning.

7. I move about every two much so that I have never been called for jury duty. I guess they can't keep up with me. (of course now that I have said that you all know I'll get a letter next week...) :)

wow, that's a lot harder than it looks!! Most have you have been tagged so i won't be tagging anyone else.

Lunch Time Sketch

small sketches

A few drawings from a small moleskine notebook

30 second poses

I've tried the 30 second poses on the pose maniac site( When you watch without drawing 30 seconds seems like a long time. As soon as you start drawing it flies by. These are a few of my first attempts.

Monday Meeting

We have these meetings ever Monday after lunch and most of the time I don't have much to say. So while i sit and listen (it's known i can never just sit still) i sketch things around the empty conference room. Most of the time it's what's on or below the table. This was from yesterday...

Castanea (chestnut)

I wasn't sure if I was going to post this. The scanner output is definitely different. Maybe I'll try and take a photo and repost. It's really different working on real watercolor paper. This was done on Arches 140lb CP.

I finished!!!

I finished!!! I can't believe I finished. This is the sketchbook I have been using since March. There are 144 pages filled with sketches. It's the first one I have ever started and finished.
I couldn't be happier and am so looking forward to starting my new one tomorow.


A few sketches while at a softball game. It's the last one in this sketchbook!!!!

My Bag

This is my awesome bag I use to carry my sketchbook and some other things. It has the perfect amount of compartments / pockets. It even has one on the outside where I keep a small container of water.

Monday Meeting

These are my notes from my Monday afternoon meeting. A lot of Mondays are like this...

my sketcher

I did the line work this afternoon on lunch. There's only one shoe/leg because I ran out of time, again. I decided to add the color tonight anyway.

EDM #127

It's the tiniest sketch but I can count it as a challenge. I almost forgot I did it. I drew this from the plane, waiting on the runway in Charlotte.
