I’m Your Boyfriend Now, Nancy!

In progress! Blobs of charcoal are beginning to take on recognizable forms… Phone Freddy’s tongue looks much better in person than in this photo, I promise. So much work to go on Nancy’s facial features, but I’m excited:)nancynightmareprogress

It’s good to be drawing again. You’d think tiny babies would sleep more…

Pancakes & Booze!

It’s happening again! I had so much fun at my last art show that I am itching for another one… And this time I am doing a charcoal portrait series of three female icons of 80s HORROR cinema! Now that I have had my wee bebeh, I hope this CTS will soon become a distant memory. I hope.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome…

…Really, really sucks when you’re already super pregnant and hurting all over but need to get one last commissioned portrait done.

Suck, it CTS. I finished it anyway.:)

A Day Of Rest.

I have been slowly working on my first-ever international commission for about 3 weeks… I’m very pregnant, and it now hurts too much to sit for long enough periods of time to get any real progress made. Fortunately for me, I had a very sweet, very understanding client who encouraged me to do whatever I could to try to avoid discomfort. Thank goodness, however, that I completed her custom portrait yesterday and mailed it out. I am exhausted but elated! Of course, someone else commissioned a custom portrait a few days ago so I’ve got to begin work on that, but I declare today to be a day of rest. (Well, aside from the billions of coaster set commissions that require my attention.) Woohoo, Christmas season!

Anyway… this is a lousy photograph of the drawing I just finished.. the little girl is actually much cuter than she appears here! It was exceptionally challenging to draw a child for the first time. Their features are so much softer. I reworked her face several times over until I got it right. I can’t wait until the client sees it in person!
