So, I run a private group on facebook dedicated to daily sketching/drawing. Every month I put out a calendar of prompts and you draw which ever prompt inspires you the most. The point is to just draw every day, skill level doesn’t matter.
Well… January 18th was A.A. Milne’s Birthday also known as Winnie the Pooh Day, that day the prompt was to Draw a winter activity to include Pooh & gang.
I grew up watching winnie the pooh, back in the early 70’s I had a pooh-bear, so early Winnie the Pooh holds a special place in my heart. As an adult I admire EH Shepard’s original illustrations of Pooh & gang, which is more or less what I based this drawing on.
Needless to say, I was very inspired. And yet again, I feel as though this is a direction I need to explore more of.
Here are some detailed shots as I completed them:
I’m hoping to get the illustration finished in the next few days.
Another friend that has inspired me.
I’ll be posting it on my deviant art acct here shortly (I still need to scan it).
I keep forgetting to post about this.
Last month (October I think) I commissioned my friend Summer. I absolutely love her work and told her to just surprise me.
You can find more of her wonderful photography and artwork here: http://to-paraphrase.com/
Earlier in the month I was looking at Summer’s blog, I’m always amazed at how beautiful her photographs are and one she took of herself epically inspired me.
I started the drawing on the 11th of November and finished the painting around the 23rd (took an entire day to edit the painting video).
I hope you enjoy watching it.

I really liked where this went and already working on my next victim *cough* painting… I mean painting. @_@
