Pineapple and Flower
Just the result of playing around with shapes and lines one evening.
Eye in the Sky
An abstract page inspired by the patterns and shapes formed by roadways and rivers viewed from an airplane window.
Shadow of the Moon
Another submission for June’s Theme Challenge. Inspiration struck during a seminar, but I had to wait until I got home in the evening to finish it.
Shadows in the Sand
This month’s theme challenge is particularly intriguing for me; so many possibilities and impressions and ideas…I can’t wait to see what other people come up with!
Tree of Life
I was just messing around with my different shades of brown micron pen the other night and this page is the result.
Work In Progress
I’m not sure if this one is done or not; I go back and forth on it. It started as a collection of interesting stamps and labels. I had no idea there were so many variations of camel cigarettes…I’ve seen at least five distinct packages over the last few weeks and the variety intrigues me.
Queen of Bugs
A quick study to test my new Staedtler colour fine liners and paper conditions of a Moleskine Cahier, in preparation for my Sketchbook 2012 project. The pens bleed a little on this paper, so you never get crisp results, but I have since found that the paper of the actual Sketchbook (which I have now received) is actually a little better, so I should be OK. I didn’t plan this one at all & didn’t spend too long on it either. Just wanted to have some fun.

While I was sketching a bottle of Newcastle on a deck overlooking the river, this little insect landed on my arm and just stayed there for several minutes. Once I finished the Newcastle sketch, I switched over to sketching this little one; at which point, it flew away for parts unknown.
