NEW LISTINGS! My holiday themed cards are now available in SINGLES, 5-pks, & 10-pks! If you're like me and hate having to buy 20 of something when you really need 12.... I'm here for you! πŸ’œ Kathryn πŸ’œ

P.S. I'll be adding stock slowly but surely (tortoise wins the race and all that)... If there are any items you would like to see in the shop, be it cards, prints, or even original pieces, shout out at me! 😊

New Best Friends. Babies always try to make friends... but she's rightfully wary of this one ;-). Luckily, it only took 5-7 years to gain her full & complete trust!

P.S. Possible trigger warning... This week I'm dedicating my posts to my cat Sugar, who passed a few weeks ago. As most artists do, I am incredibly inspired by those around me, human and animal alike. So, needless to say, over the past 15 years, Sugar has made an appearance in many pieces of my artwork. I spent some hours looking through my photographs and portfolios this week, and got out my favorites to share in her honor. <3
She was a crazy little floof, and wary of strangers, but she was loving to me & mine.

Happy Halloween! πŸŽƒ Catching up today on a couple last #mabsdrawlloweenclub2018 prompts. This white #raven is so pretty in black in white, but I have a feeling once the ink is dry, I'll add some subtle colors in.

Huntress's Moon. Day 24 of #mabsdrawlloweenclub2018 prompts. Keeping my promise to embrace color more, this piece is watercolor and ink. (Paint... Right back where I started. Life goes that, huh?)
Did you see the Hunter's Moon this week? The kids dubbed it "the Halloween Moon." I love how this turned out, and gave it several days instead of one (which finds me behind again, oh, well! Worth it!)

What Makes A Monster, What Makes A Man?
Day 23 of #mabsdrawlloweenclub2018 prompts. I watched both Edward Scissorhands and the Hunchback of Notre Dame this week. When I got the prompt #monster , I couldn't stop wondering what defines the word "monster". So instead of drawing a cute cartoon (monster's, Inc style was my first idea), I explored a little deeper.
Here's my Edward series of line drawings. πŸ’œ Kathryn πŸ’œ

Casual Werewolf. Day 17 of #mabsdrawlloweenclub2018 ... just a little behind on the days here, but that's how life goes!

When I started sketching this guy, he was pretty angry... But the more I drew, the more casual he became. I blame this on the fact that I was listening to podcasts on ancient egyptian (specifically Greco-Roman era) sarcophagi, and classical Greek statuary. Clearly there are influences of both here πŸ§πŸ˜‚

Verreaux's Eagle Owl. Day 15 of #mabsdrawlloweenclub2018 #drawingchallenge for #owl !
I love these guys. So cool. (I have a tattoo of one πŸ™‚) Their eyelids are bright red so they're super spooky when they close their eyes 😍

Gravestones. Day 13 of #mabsdrawlloweenclub2018 #drawingprompt ... Well, I learned that I don't like this scrap paper for my ink. I don't like how blurry the lines got. Overall they're pretty cute though! 😊☠️

Vampire Ginger. Day 12 of #mabsdrawlloweenclub2018 #drawingprompt . I've said to before, I'll say it again. I love magic black ink. It is devine. I've stuck with a minimal color palette on this one (after the color explosion from earlier, lol!)

Baku Yokai. Day 7 of #mabsdrawlloweenclub is not going to be completely finished, but I'm setting this awesome guy aside to bed added to when I have more time. Baku are spirits that roam around eating bad dreams... It's a dream catcher. How cool is that? This guy is munching on a fuzzy black spider. Thanks guy! πŸ˜‰

"Look Up!"... Loveland Frogman. A day late on this #mabsdrawlloweenclub #cryptid prompt, because I had to do it right... He's just so creepy cool. I knew he was the one to do, when I read the Wikipedia page, and saw that in 2016, there was a reported sighting by some kids playing Pokemon go.
... I guess they found one? Lol

First steps... First steps are important. Even if they don't turn out the way we hope, they always begin a journey down a path we weren't on before. πŸ’œ Kathryn πŸ’œ

A Quilt. Another drawing book prompt... Today when I really needed to relax, let my mind wander a little, I went with a prompt that let me do patterns. Teeny tiny patterns. Now I'm a little cross eyed. But it was worth it. πŸ˜…
