Pax the Corgi
Just a happy little corgi on a sticky note to cheer up a friend who was having a rough week. His name became Pax since we both had tickets for PAX East.

Party Crashers
My buddy at work had a birthday this past week, so I made this drawing for him of his 2 dogs destroying a birthday cake. They're apparently pretty good at that, especially the doberman. I've heard many stories of his mischievous antics, so I figured this would be a good depiction of him.

Sabor-Tooth Cat
Another drawing done at work. This one I gave a full background. Most of my animals are floating in white space because I can never decide what kind of setting I want them to be in or I'm afraid I'm going to ruin it if the background doesn't look right. Though I realize that if you're afraid to draw something, you should draw it more often so that you can build up confidence with it. I will try to add more backgrounds to my drawing from now on. I did not have a pencil on hand, so I did a rough sketch in pen and then traced over the lines I liked for the final drawing. He's not perfect, but drawing him helped me relax during the stressful work day. I've been getting a lot of inspiration lately from one of my favorite children's book authors/illustrators Bill Peet. I loved his books when I was a kid and still enjoy them today. His illustrations are so fun and whimsical. I looked up a lot of his work online while drawing this cat.

I love working with colored pencil but scanning them is a nightmare. If you have ever tried scanning colored pencil drawings, you probably already know this. I had to mess with it in Photoshop for a while before the scan looked acceptable. It's still a bit off from the original.

Found Some!
A drawing I did for my aunt and uncle who like pugs and mushroom hunting. Looks like this little pug has discovered some morels and hen-of-the-woods. It's interesting hearing about all the edible mushrooms my uncle has found on his searches. A lot of them have medicinal qualities.
The morels are especially good when you make a sauce with them and pour them over steak. I'm hungry...Get in my belly!

Horse Sketches
This is going under the scrapbook category since it is literally a piece of scrap paper that I pulled out of the recycle bin at work. It's sad how much paper these big corporate companies waste, so I've developed the habit of reusing discarded pages for quick doodles or studies. Most of them get thrown out again, but at least I get some practice and enjoyment out of it. I feel slightly less guilty about all the paper that ends up in the trash. I sketched this one with ballpoint pen and colored pencils. No references used, just whatever came to mind.
