We made it! Did 30 sketches for the Month of November for Skadamo, thanks Linda Silvestri! It was wonderful seeing all of the participants sketches of the day as well, it sure helps to have an awesome illustrator community to help give the extra push to do what we love anyway! In fact, below are Linda's awesome drawings- a Skadamo winner badge for me- yippee! And, the beginning of the next challenge: HoHoDooDa (Holiday doodle a day) which I will do a few here and there and maybe some other sketch of the day things too! This sketching every day sure is a great idea! Let's keep up the momentum!
Here are some make up sketches I did while visiting my mom in Petaluma for Thanksgiving. These are 30 minute on site sketches on 3.5x5inch watercolor paper. Finally able to post them now that I am back at my computer. Enjoy!

Today's sketch of the day is inspired by a silly link that I saw on facebook today "What's Your Animal Personality type?" and remembered that I had scored an ENFP on the Myer's Briggs test in high school. The site displays an animal that fits that personality trait, now of course you don't have to believe in any of it but it was fun to look at. My ENFP results came up with a dolphin. The description included: Creative, contagiously happy, boundless energy, and vivacious which fits my personality quite well. What kind of animal are you? Oh yeah, watch out for the guy in the middle, he may be the reason there was some yellow in the kiddie pool...

I gotta tell you, these spit (speed) paintings are really teaching me some things about simplification. Also, that I need to work on contrast. These are some 30 minute digital speed paintings on scenes from the Dark Crystal, one of my favorite movies from childhood.
