Winter Hibernation

The weather in New York City made it easy to hibernate and work on many projects around my apartment.  But my lack of sensory input from my city environment made it necessary for me to dig deep and challenge myself to find anything of interest for my daily journal page.  I know, I know - I could have added more apartment drawings to my precious watercolor journal, but I didn't!  

I am still working through the Carla Sonheim Drawing lab book and did two of her labs.  In the first, I searched for some bug shapes on Google images and then decorated them with Pitt pens.  In the second, I quickly gathered 5 books from one bookshelf, just as quickly flipped them open and chose something to sketch, and then put the drawings on one page.

I love the bugs. Neat colorful designs on them. Different!

Very nice page. I especially like the colorful bugs.

Love your resourcefulness! Sometimes these sketchbooks become just too precious - I sometimes have to just let myself go, and not worry about what will go in there. Ain't easy. Lively bugs! Great dog!

love the bugs!
i imagine the warm, sunny
climate the inhabit and
wish i was there.

The dog and foliage drawings are particularly good. The bugs are fanciful and fun.

Great little insects!! And I really like that hand project of yours.

Well done! Much better than I, just sitting around the house moping!

Love these sketches =)

I love your bugs - they've captured my interest and now I think I need to go draw some. I think I had a dream about a funky, funny praying mantis last night......
