Bok Choy



I bought these little Bok Choy for the purpose of sketching them. I wasn't quite sure what to do with them afterward, so I let my guinea pig have them for dinner. He thought they were delicious!

ivy leaves in ink



I really like the idea of drawing little nature things like leaves, acorns, twigs, etc....and noticing the little details that make them different.

Carrot Sketches



I bought these at the farmer's market for my guinea pig to eat, but he snubbed them cause they weren't the cute baby carrots that he usually gets.

Cashew Gerbil



This is another sketch of my gerbil named Cashew. He is still quite mean, but as long as I have something he wants between us, he will take it from me without biting me. I've yet to pet him.

Swan Sketch



So I went on vacation to Lake Michigan this week with the hope of spending some time sketching seagulls. My plans were thwarted thought by the heat wave, humidity and plain lack of seagulls. I only saw two in the distance one time. I did see some swifts, sparrows, crows and a family of swans.

Michigan Drawings



I found this cute bear with a fish in one of my sketchbooks. I spotted him on a billboard while on vacation up north. This week, I'm on vacation to Lake Michigan. Hopefully I will get some sketching done and I will find some new cute birds and animals to draw.
