Two Little Fairies

Hallo World! These overzealous girls love a dress-up party. When the animal abuse stops, will justice be served? Run girls, run!! That cat has murder in his eyes. Anyway, this painting is for sale in my store. Maybe you'll invite these three characters into your home?

Speak through Art, Make Someone Smile.

For some reason, people think that art is magical. That you are born with the "artistic bones" in your body. I think that art is a language skill that you can learn, like learning Spanish or French. It's learning how to speak pictorially, a language that is universally understood.It takes time, effort, practice, dedication, much like learning another language - or anything for that matter. And like any second language, you can learn basic conversation, or strive for fluency. I'm striving for that fluency, and eventually, hopefully I'll have something worth saying. Otherwise, what's the point? (other than a steady job drawing what others tell me to draw.)

Because a lot of people think that drawing ability is a magical god-given talent, it never ceases to thrill and amaze people when I draw them or their pets when I go out and do observational drawings. I love making people happy through art. It makes me feel that what I'm doing is worth while. I did these sketches while at the dog park. I gave the two ladies who owned this dog this sketch and portraits I did of them. One of the girls said "This is why I love Austin. Meet a total stranger and get your portrait done!... This is a day to remember!"

Sorry for the blurry picture, these were taken on the spot because I gave away the drawings so I couldn't scan them.

If you're an artist, go make someone smile with your art! You'll love the way you feel.

Identical Bikinis

What's the worst thing that can happen to a gal at the beach? When another girl wears the same bikini better than you!

This is my entry for this week's Illustration Friday topic "Identical".
and here are some closeups:

Feels a little like Betty and Veronica, huh?
Here's the sketch:

Well, I hope you like my entry!

Until next time,
