almost fall

this is a small color sketch of my morning view on the drive to school.

We cross the lake a couple of times, some days it's so misty it looks like we're driving through the clouds.  There's no place to stop and take a picture or make a drawing, so I'll just keep on trying like this. I'll be back with Illustration Friday, this weeks topic is "lush".
Happy weekend, a long weekend for most of us here!


If you squint...

...my repeat pattern lines up perfectly. 

For this first try, I give myself points for followthrough. It was a lot of fun !
Although I love fabric, that's not really what I'm aiming at with this new experiment. I'm thinking more of the endpapers for a book....or maybe wrapping paper? In any case, I'm wrapping a little friend's birthday present with this first effort and moving on to the next idea. Hmm... how about bunnies?


hi there...

My, look at the date on that last post...
There's no good way to do this. I was waiting for the perfect comeback, but life keeps speeding by.  So I'm holding my nose, and jumping in, and little by little we'll catch up. 
So, how've you been?

 On my desk:  a fun little side project; I'm teaching myself to make repeating patterns with the help of Julia Rothman's tutorial on Designsponge ( so much fun,thanks) I will move on to trying something like it on the computer. 

On my chair: a mischievous little kitten growing quickly into an ornery little cat.
