Chevron Stamp

Hey everyone, sorry I haven’t been posting lately. My brother (Fancy Pusheen) had a birthday last week, then over the weekend there was yard work to do. So yeah…

Anyway, today I tried my hand at stamp carving. I remembered I had a bunch of erasers that my Dad had found for me at a thrift shop (seven of ’em for a buck. You can’t beat that.) so I decided to use one as my stamp. Here is the result:

I think it turned out pretty good considering it was my first time. Also because I carved it with a craft knife.

That’s it for today, I guess. But I promise I’ll start doing daily Pusheen tomorrow.

Daily Pusheen: Swagger and Awesome

Now it’s time for more art! Yay! And I’ll be drawing and posting something EVERY DAY! Somewhat yay…

Anywho, I started doing these daily scribbles because of my brother, whose nickname is Fancy Pusheen. I started out with a drawing of fancy pusheen, and it kind of spiraled out of control from there.

Keep in mind these aren’t supposed to be perfect. I only draw these because they’re fun and I like to surprise the family with a drawing every day. So here we go: Day 2 and 3 of Daily Pusheen!

These are all most likely going to be done on a dry erase board, so forgive the small imperfections. One takes me less than five minutes to do. Yeah, really easy.

The drawing of fancy pusheen was accidentally erased before I photographed it. Sorry about that.

Another thing, Pusheen and all it’s characters do not belong to me. They were created by Clare Belton and Andrew Duff. These drawings I do aren’t for profit, they are created solely for the fact that Pusheen is so gosh darn awesome.

Cheers, Everyone!

We’re Off to See the Wizard!

Hello again, everyone! I’m back! And I’m here with more art. My great aunt’s birthday is on Saturday, so naturally I wanted to make her a gift.

Now, Aunt’s favorite book/movie is The Wizard of Oz. To say she likes the world of Oz and it’s characters is an understatement. Seriously, she has a whole little room just to keep all her memorabilia in. Which is actually really cool, if you ask me. I mean, I would love to have a room full of Alice in Wonderland themed things. (My favorite book in the whole world, by the way.)

Anyway, after a lot of thought, I decided to do a silhouette of the main Wizard of Oz characters. A little more thought, and I decided to two pictures for her, just because she’s so awesome. And here’s what I came up with:

I actually think these turned out pretty good, so…high five for me! *self-five*

These were drawn on 8” by 10” stretched canvases with pencil, then outlined with my favorite black sharpie pen. I filled them in with a regular black sharpie, as well as a fine-tip black sharpie. These two drawings took me roughly four hours to complete them both, but I like how they turned out, even though two of my black sharpies died in the making. *sigh* The things we do for art…and awesome aunts. Oh well, this just gives me an excuse to go to the craft shop!

Cheers, everyone!

By Skill and by Work…and Rats

Hello, friends! Sorry for the lack of posts, I’ve been somewhat busy of late. I started school this week. So yeah…

I’m one of those people who starts a thousand projects at once and takes 92 years to finish them all. Thankfully, I always have a backup plan. And weekends. That’s when most of my projects get done. The two drawings I’m about to show you are in tribal style, something I haven’t shown to you yet.

If you’ve ever seen this style you know how amazingly awesome it is. Most commonly used for tattoos, I favour tribal because it’s very bold, and there’s no standard way to draw it. No shading, (which I despise) and also no certain way you have to color. Basically, you can use your imagination and do whatever the heck you want. Just switch on some music that’s puts you in mood, (I usually listen to R3D, Wolves At The Gate, Skillet, or Thousand Foot Krutch) then pick up your pencil, marker, pen, chalk, or whatever, and draw.

Enough talk. Let’s see that art.

Yes, they are both rats. Don’t judge, rats are the bomb. They are also fairly simple to draw, so that makes it a win in my book.

I drew these on regular drawing paper with just some crayola markers I had lying around. The second photo was more of a doodle, and later I added the text, which is Latin for ‘By skill and by work/labor’. The first photo is from a series of drawings I did, depicting the twelve animals of the Zodiac. Maybe another day I’ll post the full set, but for now this is goodbye.
