I was just playing around with a left-hand border and ended up with this.
I was just playing around and ended up cutting out a chain of little people from a Game Informer (a monthly magazine for video game enthusiasts) and ended up with the spaces in between. I liked the pattern, so I glued them down and tried to come up with a way for the words to make sense.
Skull Crusher Monday!
Some friends from work and I started weight training together several months ago and it’s loads of fun. We’ve just added skull crushers (a tricep-strengthening exercise) to our Monday routine; so Monday is now ‘Skull crusher Monday’ for us. We were joking about it being a good name for a metal band, so last week, between sets, I sketched this out for fun in my notebook. Just something silly that made us all smile. And, in retrospect, ‘Skull Crusher Monday’ could be an apt description for the way Monday feels sometimes.
People in Positive and Negative Space
I was playing around with a magazine advertisement the other day and decided to try my hand at a chain of people. The result ended up glued in my moleskine, but I liked the negative space shapes as well, so I added them (with a little bit of compression in order to fit) on the facing page. Finally, I ended up with the shapes from between the people, which turned into a collage on the following page.
I was waiting for my husband to finish one of his long Sunday runs and I took a few minutes to sketch part of the dam on the Monongahela River here in Morgantown.
Just a really quick sketch of a building along the waterfront, cleaned up a little digitally.
I was just working on filling a page in a few minutes of free time and this is what I ended up with.
Who Lives Here?
I was drawing from my imagination and I ended up with this strange building in a strange land that reminds me of Dr. Seuss, a dark Alice in Wonderland, and a little bit of Lovecraft all intersecting each other.
I found myself with a little free time this evening and decide to give the August theme challenge a go. The ‘favorite rocks’ in this case are the stones in my engagement/wedding ring.
My husband and I just celebrated our first anniversary on Tuesday and are in the process of planning our reception this Saturday (we eloped on the spur of the moment the day after he proposed in San Diego, so the party is for all the family and friends to celebrate with us). The stones (rocks!) are a central ruby flanked by two diamonds. He did such an amazing job picking a one-of-a-kind, gorgeous ring and every time I catch a glimpse of it, it reminds me how much he means to me and how much I am loved.
Anyway, enough mushy stuff, there are a few of my truly favorite rocks.
