Mother and Child Giraffes Products and Art

Most of my art up until now has been paintings and outline drawings. But I recently read a book that inspired me to try something new.

It's how I did the giraffe picture shown on the tile below:

Can you tell? Does it look like a painting? Actually it is a drawing. First I drew the outline of the bodies. Then I used Sharpie Markerssharpie markers to color in the base color. Then I used Prange Colored Pencilscolored pencils to add depth and shading. Voila.

Here are the giraffe's printed on a notebook:

Let me know what you think. Have you done any art in one medium that looks like it's been done in a different medium?

Halloween Wizard Cat and Pumpkin Ghost Stickers, Aprons, and Bags

I love Halloween. It's a colorful time of the year and a fun time to let your imagination soar. There are golds and reds in the trees, and people are dreaming of what they want to be.

An important message for Halloween is to be what you want to be, as written on these stickers.

Some are getting ready to have parties and bake all kinds of goodies in their Halloween aprons.

But most are kids that are getting ready to go Trick or Treat with their Halloween bags.

Whatever you're doing for Halloween, or any time in between, may you have a wonderful time, and continue being what you want to be.

Love and blessings.
