I’m making an effort at inkTober – a pen and ink drawing a day. Here’s my drawing from today, named by my husband.

Is anyone else joining inkTober?

And… dah dah dah! The final doodle art drawing that I’m calling Giggly. …which is so unlike me.

And since you all only ever see me draw in super speed, I thought I’d share a piece in real time. Yeah… it’s slow. My point? Don’t rush when you’re doodling. The point is to relax, slow down (in life, not just doodling) and chill. Just. Slow. Down.

You should also know I was holding my phone camera for this one and actually drawing through my view on the phone. Don’t judge me.

Yay! Crazy pants are here! I’ve been watching leggings grow in popularity on Society6.com and now I’m happy to announce I’ve posted my first pair with the very popular “Tangled” doodle.

I had a rare opportunity to sit home in my PJs all day today and, of course, managed to work for a few hours and unpack boxes for another couple of hours. That’s just me. I can’t sit around all day and do nothing. Today turned out quite well. I feel rejuvenated. So enjoy the time lapse video of this spunky doodle being created.

5. Add Peacock Plants to the top of the curve.

6. Draw an odd number of stars in the sky. Watch me draw stars here:

(Note: An odd number of items is typically more visually appealing than an even number of items.)

I am really happy with this design, as you can see because I’ve already uploaded it on Society6.com in both its original black and white and as in color. Which do you like better?

It’s such a simple design. Start with a squiggly, add “leaves.” That’s all. When filling in the large black areas, don’t “color” in the traditional sense. Draw consecutive straight lines across the page until it’s all covered. It sounds ridiculous but it lends for a very clean black area. Also, you can’t really see it in the progress shots but I started this one with a compass and a very light penciled in circle. It’s something new I’ve been trying. If you don’t have a compass, try tracing a large, round object.

Yay! I had fun with this one. Easy. Clean. Fun. I needed help from 2 people to name this. Lots of key words were coming up. What do you think of when you look at it?
