Hello beautiful blog friends! Just a quick post from the studio today...
A little while back in my journal I was thinking about taking Tam's course on Willowing to learn how do do whimsy and then I started thinking about comic book heroes. One thing led to another and the next thing I know I was sketching out my alter ego, Butterfly Girl. (That magic chair surprises me sometimes.)
At first I thought, "Butterfly Girl?" A little simple but I decided I liked it. So then a couple of days ago I took a scrap of old 90lb hot press w/c paper and sketched her out again. I tried using my colored pencils again but it just wasn't working for me. So today I messed around with w/c pencils, pastels and w/c crayons but now it's a bit of a mess plus I ran out of room on the side. So, I've sketched her again and I'm just going to try copic markers and see what happens. I think I need to take Tam's course, the Wonderful World of Whimsy!!!
Secretly I have wanted to try my hand at a little comic book, or graphic novel, and I bought a Bamboo Craft tablet to try as well. There is nothing like biting off more than you can chew!!!
Only time will tell what will become of Butterfly Girl!
Music in the studio: Five for Fighting - America Town CD, Superman (It's not easy)
I hope you are all enjoying the glorious fall colors, I sure am!
Forever in art,
