My “Stranger Things” Golden Book

Posted on

I love Netflix’s “Stranger Things”. Who doesn’t? And I love Golden Books. So I thought, why not combine them for a fun exercise??

I tried to work my way through Season 1 [with full-time work and a toddler], so I only made 10 pages so far. With the new baby coming, I will pause this for now, but hopefully will come back to finish it later. It’s been fun to do!

See what I have so far: [all pages done digitally in Photoshop]ep01_a.jpg

Stay tuned for more! 🙂

One of the best shows Netflix has put out – especially if you are a child of the 80s – has been “Stranger Things”! I just HAD to draw these guys!

Painting a Norma

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:

1 – Rough sketch:

Life and work has been busy, so I haven’t been able to do many OITNB sketches lately – but watching season 3 now has made me want to do the rest of the cast!

Up next: Poussey & Taystee with their fun antics 🙂 I did this one digitally. Stay tuned for more of the cast in sketch form!

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???
