This card I made for Father's Day. Grateful for my Dad who - unbeknownst to many - is one of my inspirations for Squishy Blueberry! #kidlitart#fathersday #gratitude You'll notice though that Squishy managed to evade this picture. He is actually there - he's behind the tree so you can't see him. It's number 1 in a new series of drawings called "Where's Squishy?"
This is the first time I colored an entire picture in with no white space. I think I like the version with the white space better.
Squishy Blueberry is going from one world to another on a magic carpet. This one I had no idea where it was going until I got about halfway through the drawing - it was a surprise for me too! Another one with two versions - one experimenting with coloring all the space and the other with white space.
I'm starting a daily drawing practice, where I draw for 10-15 minutes each morning after my dog walk. Here is one that took a few days of small increments that became a birthday card for a loved one. I've become a little rusty in my hiatus from drawing Squishy Blueberry, while focusing on my comic strip, but I'll get back and even better. Stay tuned for more!
is an expression of my Inner Child, reminding me to have fun and make room for play, while teaching me lessons I did not integrate from Kindergarten about the imagination and believing in myself.
