On Wednesday, I sat in a vegan cafe in Barcelona and made this drawing, which was inspired by the many colorful drawings painted on the walls there. It was a colorful place, and the food was delicious!
Last Saturday, Jim and I went up to Kettle Moraine South to hike the last eight mile section of the Ice Age Trail within the park. After completing it that day, I officially accomplished one of the things one my list of 32 Things to Do Before I Turn 33: Hike the whole length of the Ice Age Trail running through Kettle Moraine South. Wahoo!
These pictures are just a few scenes from the day. Not sure why the plastic bowling pins were in the forest, but they were.
On Tuesday night, I made this woman in a headdress. Actually, I feel like the headdress part might have come out looking more like an elaborate hairdo, but either way, this is just a little doodle I made.
On Tuesday, I made a doodle of a girl, which was actually inspired by three different sketches. This sketch by Berlin-based graphic designer and illustrator Ekaterina Koroleva is what inspired the hair. This sketch by Tom Cardo-Moreno inspired the lined detailing of the lips and sweater, and this last funny sketch by Kris Atomic inspired the facial features.
Thursday night was laundromat night so I brought my sketchbook and markers with while my laundry spun around in the dryer. It reminds me a bit of the black and white pieces by Piet Mondrian, although less symmetric or parallel.
A certain someone has food poisoning (most likely) and a crazy fever so I spent the evening taking care of him. Therefore, I didn’t finish my California el stop picture yet. Instead, I did a doodle of the sun, which turned out kinda cute!
Tonight was the return of Walking Dead so some friends and I had a viewing party! During the festivities, I drew a Zombie. I used one of the Walking Dead comic books as inspiration since I’m very ill-experienced in monster drawing.
