Late Night Drawlirium

Like most people, I work best during certain periods of the day.  Usually my most productive time is mid-morning through early afternoon.  Wouldn't it be nice if that time could be devoted solely to fun stuff like drawing and sculpting!  Well, it never is.

Instead I squeeze art time in during odd hours and before bed.  This results in late night creature drawing while I kind of 15% watch tv and relax.  (I am watching My Little Pony on the DVR at 11:57 PM right now.  I think an intervention is in order.  Fluttershy's little bunny, Angel, is so freaking cute I want to put her in my mouth).  Clearly the term I coined this evening is appropriate: Drawlirium.  Enjoy.

Unicorn Magic

I have a confession to make.  Recently I have been watching a LOT of My Little Pony cartoons.  I would like everyone to believe that the sole reason for the viewing is my toddler.  There is the distinct possibility that once she takes her nap I leave the Netflix rolling and continue to watch the show while I doodle in my sketchbook.  In fact, one might say that I enjoy watching the ponies learn about friendship.  After all friendship is good, right?  Not only do I appreciate the message those perky unicorns and pegasuses (pegasi?) convey, I also enjoy the aesthetic of the cartoon.  Don't tell anyone.

This evening while UFC and beer-drinking husband provide some background noise I sketched this unicorn.  She might not be as cute as Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, or as magical as Princess Celestia but she can poke you really hard if you rub her the wrong way.  Friendship is magic.

An Armful of Fat Bunnies

Say hello to Fat Bunnies No.1 through No.3.  When I distractedly watch TV in the evening or when my offspring is napping I have been keeping myself busy with these spherical and somewhat bewildered bunnies.  They are multiplying at an alarming rate but luckily they have not yet developed carnivorous tendencies.
