Just a little Hello!

Hello blog people! I’m heading to Las Vegas in the morning for a trip with my favorite cousin (more like my sister) so I thought I’d pop on here and say hello quickly… I’m hoping I’ll get a chance to draw on my mini vacation, maybe by the pool or something, although it’s supposed to be like 110 degrees which is disgusting. Keep your fingers crossed though and hopefully, I’ll make some content for this here old blog of mine; might be skewed by consumption of alcohol, but content nonetheless. Until then, I’ll just leave this here…

Bye!

Etsy shop time

So, I did it, I opened an Etsy shop and am selling things…  (well, only a few things at the moment) what!!!! yeah, that’s what I said, me, I… opened an Etsy shop and thought people might actually buy some art and illustrations and such. More listings will be added this month, so far only three.

So, if you want, check it out… RBillustrationStudio

inktober2016_day2

Sumi ink, Zebra brush pen, Copic Markers and a white gel pen… day two complete, on to day three.

#HarryPotterforInktober

I’ve decided for Inktober I want to draw/ink nothing but Harry Potter goodness. So, the prompts are below, nothing fancy, just characters to doodle, draw and illustrate, because if you’re like me you could use to draw people and such more often. I’d love if others joined in, even if just for a few of the days. If you do, share your work on Instagram, #harrypotterforinktober! If you have questions or thoughts, I want to hear them… other then that, I hope someone else joins me for…

Marti Nap Time

This is my dog… his name is Mad Martigan, Marti for short, or Madigan if you’re my grandpa. He’s like Ferdinand the Bull (anyone out there read that when they were little? It was one of my favorites) he likes smelling flowers, and being chill, which, those are things I like too, so, we’re kinda like two pees in a pod, except he’s WAY cuter, and obviously furrier; we’re both a bit fluffy though.

He was taking a quick little snooze, and I just can’t pass up the chance to draw him, he’s my favorite. One day, there will be a book all about him, cause, seriously, SQUEEEEEE, the cutest! I don’t just say that cause he’s my fur-baby, I think if you asked just about anyone who has met him, and they’d agree.

 

Much Excite

So, it’s been a few days… but I am here briefly today to tell you: I got a new sketchbook, and the paper with Copic markers is just UGH… SOOOO GOOD. I came straight home from work and started color swatching. I ignored all the other important things I should have been doing, hence why it is almost 11pm and I’m just getting around to doing something with today’s post. So, here, because no post is complete without a picture of something…

speed doodles seem to be what I do lately. But soon, I’ll actually be spending some time on arts and crafts, and then you will be shocked, cause it might actually look a bit nice and artsy and all that good stuff.

Dare I say ’till tomorrow’? Oh, I dare, and only time will tell if I make an appearance.

That Kinda Day

I’m having a blue day today. Some days are just like that. Some days things just hurt. Today started off okay enough, just one little moment and I couldn’t escape the sadness. But, tomorrow’s a new day and all, so, yeah. I drew this up quickly, because this sums up how I feel about today, and it’s not great, but I think it’s good to remember, not every day is filled with happy moments and sadness is okay too.

I used only my pastel Copics, interesting choice for the mood I agree. I didn’t spend a bunch of time on this (as you can see from the horrifying hand I drew) I never seem to, I need to work on that. Less slap and dash is what I need to start aiming for.

See you tomorrow for more Monday feelings.
