I acquired me some Chameleon markers from a friend. At first, I didn’t understand how to use them. Like, how am I supposed know how much marker it will take to fill a shape? So I fiddled with them for a bit. And finally got the hang of ’em. It’s all in the wrist. ~__^


I didn’t plan to draw a heart. It just happened. I swear. 

Sleepovers are cool. But for some reason, once you’re a grown-up, it’s just called “staying with a friend.”

Well, I’m not having it. Because I don’t feel like being a grown-up today.

I drew this during a weekend sleepover with a cool friend (who nearly lost her cats to our ferocious beast.)

I fidget. Can’t sit still. Never could. So whether I’m bored, uncomfortable or excited, you will likely see me squirm. 

Fan me. Feed me.

I’m stepping away from my norm here (just for a moment, I promise) and sharing a slightly different kind of art I’ve been exploring. I’ve enjoyed pencil sketches since high school but watercolors are new for me. The video is a combination of real time and time lapse. I hope you enjoy it!

Here’s the pencil drawing before watercolors were applied.

And the final painting.

Tell me all the arts you enjoy. Let’s be art friends. ^____^

Because…just because. Go with it.

I started with basic straight lines crossing the page. This is how most lies begin.

Then I filled in all the corners of the wedges. This is the most fun step for some reason, probably because I’m a weirdo.

Now that the corners of your mind…er drawing have gone dark, vary the direction of repeated arcs within the shapes, to cover your lies from every angle. Triangular shapes are easy. The trapezoidal shapes were a bit more challenging. It’s big word Wednesday, btw.

And voila! You have a tangled web of lies, solid for a moment yet so frail as soon as a little pressure is applied.

Don’t be a liar. Liars suck.
