Inktober Concluded

Yup, it is about over.  But I saved a couple of my favorites for the end.  I really like the dishwasher robot.  I want one of my own.  And even robots are more fun in space.

Now I need to finish building my Halloween costume.  It also involves robots.  And cardboard.

Yup, it's Inktober, a holiday season only observed by illustrators and the ink people who live at the bottoms of dry wells.

In honor of the season I'm posting a bunch of free coloring pages on one of my favorite subjects: robots.

Go ahead and print them out for your kids (or yourself.)  Enjoy.

Gouache Pixels

I'm probably way too excited, but folks, it is happening.  Very soon.  Just a few more weeks.

I've got Zelda on the brain.  I can't help it.

Gouache Doodle

Can I post something without actually saying something about it?

Probably not.

Gouache Doodle

I also really like the word "gouache."  It's pronounced "gwash."  Before I knew that I called it "gow-a-che."

Live and learn.

Gouache Doodle

I really should post more art on this here art blog.  Here is a little gouache doodle.

I really enjoy the word "doodle."  It is much fun to say aloud.

Making New Art Friends

A few weeks ago I emailed an artist whose blog I follow with a simple question.  She answered my question and then soon found my blog as well.  In no time we made plans to do an art trade.

The artist in question is Jess Bradley.  She's got a great sense of fun and humor.  You can see her art here.  And also here.  And some more here.  And also a bunch of other places that you can get to from those places I already mentioned.

Now on to the art trade.  All this cool stuff came from far across the Atlantic (from Bristol, UK am I right Jess?) to get to me here in Provo Utah, USA.

My favorite bit was the trading cards.

But the keychain was cool too.  Previously my keys were boring.  Now they are happy.

You can see all the details about the stuff here.  Lots o' goodies.

Hooray for making new friends.
