Inktober 2017 – The Adventures of Robson

Posted on

This year I participated in Inktober again, but I wanted to try my best to do a drawing every day if I possibly could! I decided to make my theme about Robson, because I have a lot of fun ideas to draw when it comes to her!  🙂  ❤ 

Here are all 31 drawings in order! Maybe one day I will make a book about this little puppet 🙂 

(All drawings done in a Moleskine sketchbook, with col-erase pencils for the rough, and a Pentel brush pen for the inked lines.)

Day 1: Robson in her knitted shawl!


Day 2: Robson doing her fav yoga pose!

Day 3: Dancing in the living room with her stuffed elephant!

Day 4: Robson and our cat Mowgli sometimes bird watch together!

Day 5: Robson loves the swings – and loves to wear her sunglasses upside down!

Day 6: She loves to wave at herself in our bathroom mirror!

Day 7: Robson loves to share meals with her friends like Shannon-Joy!

Day 8: While visiting friends, Robson decided to chew their Thanksgiving decorations!

Day 9: Robson had fun climbing around at the pumpkin patch!

Day 10: I love it when Robson finds my oversized hats and wears them around the house.

Day 11: It is Muddy Buddy season on the West Coast!

Day 12: She finally said Mowgli’s name! (mogey)

Day 13: Robson is a big climber at 18 months, and she loves to climb to the piano and play the keys!

Day 14: She has made a bed in a laundry basket for herself and her friends!

Day 15: It’s rare now, but I love it when Robson falls asleep on my chest. ❤

Day 16: Robson loves to (try to) play my Ovation guitar!

Day 17: If you visit our house, Robson will most likely try on your shoes!

Day 18: Lately Robson has been taking a photo of us off the wall, bringing it to us and pointing to it saying “mum-mums”. ❤❤

Day 19: Robson loves to meet other kids, but she had NO personal space!

Day 20: When I use my hair dryer, Robson comes running and wants me to blow it on her hair and face and then she scream-laughs!

Day 21: Every night, Mowgli follows Robson to her room to say good night and she always waves at him and smiles!

Day 22: Some of the best moments are right after her nap, she comes out all rumpled and warm, hugging her Sleep Sheep and lets us cuddle her for a few minutes until she wakes up. ❤

Day 23: Someone pointed out that Robson’s current toddler run is just like Phoebe’s from “Friends”!

Day 24: We are having a lot of appts to check on Bean Boy, and Robson gets very concerned and curious about what exactly the ultrasound is all about!

Day 25: Robson loves soup – and oh boy does it make a lot of messes for us! Worth it. ❤

Day 26: Little Red Riding Robson! I love all her hipster clothing.

Day 27: When we have friends over, Robson uses her pickpocket skills to go through our friends bags and purses. You have been warned!

Day 28: Robson is becoming fast friends with a little puppy named Dobby 😊🐾

Day 29: Some of my fav moments – Robson is obsessed with Coldplay, and she asks me to pick her up and enthusiastically dance around the room with her on my hip. Her squeals of joy fill my heart to overflowing. ❤❤

Day 30: Robson loves animals, and two in particular – sheep and pigs! She makes BAAHHH and SNORT noises constantly.

Day 31: Robson dressed up as a big derpy spider for Halloween! For my last drawing of Inktober, I decided to try a time lapse video of my drawing & inking. It was a fun experiment I will try again soon! See below for the final drawing.


 
Thanks to everyone who followed along this Inktober!

Last sketches of 2015

Posted on

This October – December was the busiest on record, what with starting a new show at the studio, piles of freelance, and selling and buying a house…… so sadly my sketches took a backseat. I managed to squeak out a few, here they are!

For Inktober 2015:

A couple sketches in time for “Back to the Future” Day! [Brush pen on Moleskine sketchbook.]

And of course a sketch of our cat Mowgli in his favourite position.

I managed to fit in two commissions done as Christmas gifts for clients. The first one was for a couple who had just gotten married and loved trees, hence the background. The second was for someone who is a composer. Both digital.

I was asked to do a few exploratory character designs for a project, and here is what I came up with! I tried a few different styles, and it was fun just to draw a few different versions of the character I had in my head.

In doing my own sketch series for “Orange is the New Black”, I thought I would do Norma in a bit of a different media – watercolour. I need to get back into the real paints!! Here is how she turned out, step-by-step:

UPDATED JULY 6, 2014:

I did a quick sketch of Pennsatucky and decided to tweet it out the actress who plays her TOO well – Taryn Manning – for fun! 🙂 To my complete surprise, she tweeted me back! See below 🙂

The wifey and I have jumped on board for the new-ish Netflix series, “Orange is the New Black”…. even though a lot of the time our mouths are gaping open and asking “WHAT did they just say???!!!”

Ya can’t deny the characters are amazing, and having completed Season 2…. what a great storyline! I decided to draw all the characters, but I started with Red [see below]. And then I heard of this fanart competition, and decided to create something for that too. [see above] Why not???
