Wee Doodle Wednesday Meets Illustration Friday

My time these days is largely consumed by prep for an art show coming up in October (you can follow the progress of that project at Lost Coast Post.)  However, I'm taking periodic breaks from all the painting madness and using down time to let my mind & pen wander.  This edition of Wee Doodle Wednesday is inspired by this week's topic over at Illustration Friday.  I've wanted to participate in IF forever but really have always been too intimidated.  I thought I'd give it a shot though since an idea immediately sprang to mind when the topic "Bounce," was announced last Friday.  It's often good to tackle the things that frighten you the most.

I imagined that, perhaps, when some little boy or girl is having a sleepover someplace else, their particular closet monster creeps out of the shadows and has a wee bit of fun bouncing on the bed.  I experimented here with limited color, rendering the bed and rug in shades of gray Pitt pens and coloring the little monster with Letraset AquaMarkers.

Wee Doodle Wednesday

"Doing the Robot" - Pitt pens & micron
Welcome to another addition of Wee Doodle Wednesday here at Fiddlestick Hollow.  If you  follow my other blog, Lost Coast Post, you may already know that I have a fondness for robots.  I think it might be a natural consequence of being such a huge science fiction fan.  Whatever the reason, I draw robots rather regularly and I am starting to practice drawing them doing something instead of just standing still.  (That's something I working on with all the characters I'm doodling.)
