Day 26: Snowy Night

Snowy Night Illustration in Sharpie

Once again inspired by the book Trubloff: The Mouse Who Wanted to Play the Balalaika, tonight I decided to recreate one of the illustrations from this beautiful book. Instead of using paint  like the illustrator did, I thought it would be a fun challenge to convert the concept to a Sharpie marker drawing. I like the result, but I think I’m a little light-headed from the markers. How do Sharpie-users avoid this? Or do they just get used to it?

Check out my previous painting inspired by this book.

Today, I went to Costco with some friends (and bought large quantities of things like toilet paper and wine) and then drove around with them and my boyfriend to find “for rent” signs. They’re hoping to move to my neighborhood. Yay!

These are just pictures from my day.
