Eye am having so much fun...

Learning to draw eyes!!!  I have a LONG way to go, but to be able to sit down and relax with a sketch pad, some pencils (and most definitely an eraser) is just one of the coolest ways to pass time... especially with Hurricane Irene (such a biotch) raging outside...

I was blog hopping all over... and got inspired by Christy Tomlinson.  Christy inspires me a LOT.  She's an amazing artist... and makes it all look so effortless.  She's taught me SOOOOO much.  Someday it will be effortless for me too.  One of my goals... :-)  Here's a link to Christy's blog so you can get inspired too.  Click me 

So anyway.  I grabbed an 8x10 canvas panel, my too few Copics, my trusty black Zig Writer and hit the deck.  I doodled some flowers in black, then colored them in... and then used my skinny end (OF MY ZIG, PEOPLE - OF MY ZIG!!) to doodle all over each flower.  Sealed it and called it done.  All in all it was hours of work - but I enjoyed every second of it and didn't want it to end. 

So I'm thinking of having a good photo taken of it, and printing out nice prints for Etsy.  I also had a fat quarter made of it... to see about doing a piece of fabric...

Lots of possibilities!!!
