New Year’s Resolutions

Posted on

Every year we make resolutions. Some are important like quitting a bad habit. Some are just to change or improve your life. And then some are things you just want…

My resolutions are the same every year. To live in a warm climate and have more time to draw and paint. Well I almost made it last year! However it just wasn’t meant to be at this time in my life. Things happened that I had no control of but hopefully everything will work out in the next couple of years. The good thing is that I’ve reconnected with a good friend, have a nice home and my dog is happy. I’ll keep making the same resolutions and you never know, I might come up with some new ones! It doesn’t hurt to dream.

Improvisation

Posted on

 

This is an example of what you can do on the spur of the moment. I needed to do a card for someone in a hurry and couldn’t for the life of me come up with anything. I actually knew his birthday was coming up but thought I could whip one up as I’ve been drawing this man for years. He may even make an appearance in future posts if he plays his cards right. Anyway I had to think fast and decided to take another illustration, remove some of the characters, give the shark a crankier eye and add the man.

I don’t look at this as cheating, more like recycling. Isn’t technology wonderful?

Shark!

I got a shark for Christmas. Okay it wasn’t a live one but as close as I’ll ever get to owning the real thing. He was a flying shark. Once inflated with helium you could fly him around the room by remote control.

I love sharks. I sometimes think of what I’d do if I could live my life over again (don’t you?) and know I would be a marine biologist, specializing in the health and welfare of sharks. Helping them live better lives without being hunted for cartilage, trophies or being asked to leave their home so that we can go for a swim. Ever since I saw Jaws (the real life footage by the Taylors in particular) I’ve been fascinated with sharks. My dream is to go down in a shark cage and take pictures, maybe pat them on the nose…or just grab a fin and go along for the ride.

 

This is the life…

Walking along the beach, the sun on my hair, and a warm breeze all around, it truly is the life. If only it were true. I’m not at the beach, there are no warm breezes and my hair is usually covered to keep my head warm. That life is only a dream. My dream. The country I live in is cold for 7 months of the year (12 if you ask me but so far nobody has). The thought of going outside all year round, dressed only in t-shirt, shorts, sandals or bare feet makes me giddy with excitement. Warm breezes, sandy beaches and no snow. 

                                                                    Yes that is the life. 

                  And if I looked like the girl in the doodle that wouldn’t be too bad either.
