The High Priestess

So my daughter hasn't wanted to draw at night with me lately (6 year old, whatcha gonna do) So I'll just pepper in some of her drawings here and there as she does them.

Line work & a Hot tub party

Varying the weight of line-work used in an illustration can drastically change its character. I came by this style of illustration by studying mechanical engineering drawings, and Leonardo Da-Vinci sketches. The driving motivation behind adopting this style is to improve communication of the drawing's narrative.

Oliva drew me and her in a glass hot tub having a soak cause she missed me while I was at work today.

Layout Art & A Minecraft Creeper Girl

I do my graphic design by first sketching out my compositions quickly before I ever put mouse to pixel. Sometimes on paper, sometimes with the tablet, but always by hand. Below is a page of sketches created for a spread in a booklet I'm working on.

Olivia loves Minecraft, so she drew her impression of a blocky creeper girl with pigtails, a bow, and a toothy smile, and totally creeping me out.

Wicked Fairy & Snowflake Fairy

Drawing A Day is a Thing again!
I have started drawing again at nights, but this time I've got my daughter doing it as well. So each day I will post my sketch/drawing/whatever along with my daughter Olivia's from the night before. Today's sketch is a coy and plotting fairy twirling her tail between her fingers.

Mini Me's crayon drawing is of a snowflake fairy, snowy mountains, a crystal castle, snowflakes, and a sunrise in the background. She's attempting shading and blending colors, not bad for a 6 year old.
