illustration friday - entangled

Okay I tried again using watercolour, guess I should have used waterproof ink, doh! Also, the entangled helicopter in SIL's hair.
I was entangled in dogs and relatives all last week. We had five dogs (four black labs and one very ginger golden retriever), nine people and one very annoyed kitty over for thanksgiving. I doodled this quickly on the computer and hope to add another one soon featuring my sister-in-law and a remote controlled helicopter that got entangled in her hair just as she proclaimed it an "outside toy" hee, hee....puppy pictures below.

My brilliant nephew helped out with last week's topic "Music" in all the hoopla we just never got the chance to submit it, so here it is:

A very quick doodle, since my life is so unbalanced right now AND the kitten is trying to kill me!

illustration friday - blur

Things are starting to BLUR a little as the kitten gets up there in age, even she needs a little help from her readers.

I really blurred this doodle with my impatience and didn't wait for the ink dry so it's a little messy.

illustration friday - skinny

I'm not fat, I'm fluffy! 
Indeed, kitten is quite SKINNY under all that fluff, she only weighs about six pounds.

For Halloween here's a "10 Little Pumpkins" inspired doodle.

Thanks for all the positive feedback on my abstract paintings. I'm taking a class at the Torpedo Factory and it's really been challenging and fun. I like the acrylic and collage stuff, working on one of the kitty, will post when I finish.

illustration friday - fast

The furballs have not been fasting, I have just not been very FAST in posting new IF submissions I hope to get back into the groove soon. While I still can't find a bunch of my studio stuff, like my light box, we're SLOWLY settling into a beautiful fall here. 

I have been keeping busy by exploring the abstract.

illustration friday - welcome

Everyone in our new neighborhood has made us feel very welcome.
While it's not the beach the boys are enjoying their new wateringhole.

illustration friday - magnify

The skylight in my new office magnifies the sound of the raindrops which we haven't heard in awhile, it never rained in southern california. The kitten is liking her new digs. We all survived the trek cross-country.

We're almost all moved in, I still haven't found some of my art supplies, I'm sure they're in a brown box somewhere. Happy to report the dogs are not afraid of thunderstorms which they've never experienced before.

Here are some pics from the trip:

Route 66, Paul Bunion and pups


bored, are we there yet?
