Just earlier today I created and fleshed out an account on Patreon, a site for connecting creators with patrons.
Allergy eye and sniffles wore me out.
I’ll try to take a better profile picture over the next few days so I can get rid of this one of me looking beat. (Granted, I think it’s a fun portrait and was having a great time in spite of my horrible allergies.)
I encourage all of my creative friends and followers to give the site a look; it may be something that would work well for you.
I also encourage those who love art, music, theatre, prose, poetry and any of the other myriad means of creative expression visit Patreon; you can help be part of the creation of something wonderful by giving even as little as $1 a month to a creator.

For Illustration Friday Theme “Space”
Ink on Paper
In the frigid mental fogs left as dreams died under the weight of flighty eyelids she felt mired in an endless void until clarity found her.
After a thoroughly relaxing day containing little outside of yoga and laundry I’m feeling anything but tired, which doesn’t bode well for my early shift at the cafe tomorrow. In my sleeplessness I decided to have a go at Illustration Friday after a very long absence from it.
I had some fun and like this piece in most regards; her hand is a little funky.
So very busy and finished nicely with Drink and Draw at a local pub with friends and my fellow. I didn’t feel much like drawing tonight but managed to work out a couple of faces for the February challenge.
Faces 27, 28, 29 & 30
A friend happened to stop in with her cousin while I was there; it was nice seeing her even though I didn’t get much chance to chat with her over the din of the crowded bar.
Now I’m off to bed for an early shift tomorrow and hopefully a bit of drawing or mala-making in the evening.
Start of a Rose Quartz & Coral Mala
Today I visited the Dallas Zoo with some friends from Drink and Draw and a group from A Bunch of Short Guys. The goal was to socialize, enjoy the day and get in some much-needed practice with drawing from observation/drawing live animals.
My horrible, botched drawing of the day. +2 points to whoever guesses correctly what animal it’s supposed to be.
Vultures gon’ getcha.
Giant anteater & girl.
Monkeys, wallabies and an emu.
This one was hastily done and might garner some more attention to clean up the shadows and smooth out the broad strokes.
(Faces 25 & 26)
I love drawing and need all the practice I can get with drawing from observation so today was a welcome oasis of beneficial practices and camaraderie. I look forward to the next outing like this one!
I know this is a bit of a stretch for the 29 Faces Challenge, but see that others include animal faces in their entries so I figured it would be kosher. I still plan on doing more than 3 human faces to finish out this month.
Faces 17 & 18
The actors in Unfinished Song have great faces. Between crying spells during the first 20 minutes I paused the film and sketched out a couple of faces.
The angle on the first one is testament to my poor posture and my work surface being more conducive to writing than drawing. The second one was more mindfully don’t and isn’t quite a skewed. I may have another go at the first to straighten it out some.
I was lucky enough to spend Sunday evening into Monday morning driving the porcelain bus. Outside of that, Monday was spent holed up in bed. Luckily, today I am feeling much better and have been able to eat a few Saltines and half a cup of applesauce.
I was having a helluva time drawing faces Sunday night.
Point in case.
I definitely need to keep up with the life drawing sessions!
Totally botched her foot on this one!
The model wore a fun Valentine’s Day themed outfit for us.
I tried to get in some practice with hands since my faces were lackluster.
Her cuffs were fun.
This was a tricky angle.
