Doodle faces and expressions

finished drawing

Sketching face doodles from imagination. At this point, everything I’m drawing is from my head only. Here I’ve transformed pen and ink on watercolor paper to a png with some modifications–text, cleaning up, background and color burns, etc. I saw this through a cloud of faces and hoped to represent it that way. I am calling this group the Curly-Q’s. I hope to incorporate them into one of my little picture books. I am sure I will find the right place for them. Here is another shot of how it started out. The whole image began with pencil swirls on watercolor, scanning and then went through a lot of changes in photoshop.

I’ve listed this on RedBubble and on TeePublic. fun

That’s Mine…cat fight

pen and ink

We’ve all seen this. It’s not really a fight but more of a stand-off. The big guy walks around with a shadow of his former self on his back. See his alter ego white cat with the green eyes and reverse calico markings on his back. Just in case you didn’t guess, he’s just a gentle soul because he also has a butterfly on his head. Fun. This one will definitely appear in my small picture book series. Number 1 on friendship is complete, number 2 in process…it’s about lunch. what? yup. Just fun stuff.

The picasso bug adorns Pablo Picasso’s suit

This is a watercolor I did of the master, Pablo Picasso sporting a real picasso bug on his lapel collar. When I discovered that there is a real bug by that name living in Africa, I could not resist painting him. You can find him here
