Lil’ Easter Bunny

It’s April and Easter is only a few days away so I am starting off the month with a few Easter critters. I had several blob creatures that looked like bunnies and this is one of them. I am working in a sketchbook that is made from a leather cover with Arches Text Wove paper which is very soft and is very nice to work with water media.

The sketchbook came as a kit that I purchased from https://innovativejournaling.com I bound it myself.

Marty loves Easter and wants to be the Easter Bunny when he grows up. He dreams about being the Easter Bunny all the time.

3×3 Design Challenge #1

I like doing Shannon McNab’s design challenges. This is last Friday’s submission but my posts are a little backed up right now from last month’s St Patrick’s Sketchbook. I am also working on ideas for Easter which should start on April 1.

The Challenge for Week 1 was Folksy Florals are something folk arty so being born a Pennsylvanian, the first idea that popped into my head was Amish hexes so I incorporated some flowers I did in one sketchbook and one of the birds from last month to come up with this submission.

People in the Neighborhood #1

This series of postcards were inspired by a Lesson in Carla Sonheim’s 2021 Year Long Class. There are 4 total which I will be posting over the next couple of days.

Kurt, Carrie and Sally decided that they wanted to go on an Adventure. Carrie’s dog, Melville and Kurt’s kitty, Boomer, joined them.

Wild Calico

Oh HEY! Where did this guy come from? The idea for this guy came from Carla Sonheim’s 2021 Sketchbook Revival lesson. The first part of the lesson is to draw a bunch of one liner subjects…cat, elephant, vase of flowers, toilets…..then we each picked one of our own to turn into a more finished piece….

Voila! Wild Calico!

Wild Calico doesn’t like to take baths and he loves to jump in garbage cans and dumpsters. Now he’s having a bad hair day.

Cloudwalker

Cloudwalker loves playing with the Snow and Frost Faeries. He loves to use his wings to make strong blizzards. He’s sad because winter is over.

This is the last page in my St Patrick’s Day sketchbook. I hope you enjoyed these pages. All of the sketches were very involved and had a lot of layers in order to produce each creature. There were a lot of steps to each page. I loved doing it but I am glad this sketchbook is finished.

I will to make a new sketchbook to start a new series/storytelling session for April. April is usually International Fake Journal Month. I have a few days to decide what I will do for April.
