Sticky Doodle Letter A


After seeing this numerous places I decided to do soemthing with the stickies that I have hangin' around... Letter A starts us off, don't ask me why I have him holding an umbrella, maybe because it reminded me of the aligator holding an umbrella in Disneyland's "It's a Small World" rainforest scene...

When purchasing homemade lemon-ade from a neighbor kids roadside stand

For today's illustration Friday the word is "Hoard" I have used this one before, so I thought I'd not cheat and re-draw and re-color him...

IF ~ Wrinkles

It seems to me Elephants at the circus are a lot more wrinkled than the ones at the zoo.
Maybe the Ringmaster requires a bath a day or the clowns find it funny to keep the elephant
entertained until he's a prune. Also don't know why I made the toe-nails pink, don't recall ever seeing an elephant with painted toenails. They might exist though :)

for the next comp. at the end of the month...Might color them one
day...

IF ~ Heavy


Rough for this weeks Illustration Friday
"Heavy" For some reason I was on this
Sock Monkey kick this past weekend and
So I drew a sock monkey lifting a heavy
elephant, Now why this sock monkey is
doing that is beyond me and why the
elephant would want to or need to be
lifted by a sock monkey may reamain a
mystery for years to come...


Here is the finla colored version.
Watercolor and Prismacolor
pencils...

Snowmobile weekend

This past weekend we went to http://www.beavercreeklodge.com/ and spent all day Saturday snowmobiling from 9 am til 5 pm. Needless to say it was a lot of fun, BUT I sure do hurt this morning...










Wide open spaces to go really fast.









Some of the hills that we spent time on.










More Trails thru the trees.









The air is really thin up here. 9700 ft. On a clear day you are supposed to be able to see the Grand Teton's from this point. Somewhere on the Utah Idaho border...









View from the lodge balcony.












Trees on the peak don't look so "alive"

Just messing around with some paper piecing and a new pen that makes the lines look like those from a coloring book. My youngest is reallllllllyyyy into Dinosaurs...So I find myself drawing Dinos on his paper and then he usually ends up telling me I did it wrong...
