Inchie Challenge Continued…

Days 4-6 prompts:

Day 4 – Yellow – I was totally spontaneous and I used two Tombow Markers and a waterbrush to create this one. Simple designs like this can grow into something else…

Day 5 – Wood – They Draw had sent out an email about typography so wood became wooden letters.

Day 6 – Sea

I kinda went berserk on the prompt for Sea. I am also doing Carla Sonheim’s Year Long class and the lesson came up for working with crayons and melting them. I made a bunch with crayon and used other media over top over the crayons. I created many Inchies for the prompt “sea.”

Prompts 4-6
Sea- Two melted crayon with silver gel pen
Sea – layered melted crayon with gel pen
Sea – watercolor and gel pen

Jenny

There, hidden in the palms! Jenny saw another creature, just like her!

This is an abbreviated version of what I just wrote about Jenny. Jenny is already, unexpectedly, becoming a story. Yeah, she’s weird looking and could potentially be scary

But looks are often deceiving, aren’t they?

This is an Artist Trading Card sized art. ATCs are traded between artists and they have to be 2.5 x 3.5 in. I prepped a few ATC sized pieces because I can do those quicker than larger pieces. And I can also work on them from anywhere.

An ACEO (Art Cards, Edition and Collection is a ATC that an artist sells. I have seen ATCs/ACEOs that were framed very nicely. They are tiny art but they are also fun to collect.

Carmella

Just hatched this morning, everything was new to Carmella. She looked down at her feet.

“Wow, what are those? Can I eat them?“

Think of them as baseball cards for artists.

Where did the bunnies go?

I am happy to say that the bunny sketchbook is full, so I can retire that one to the bookcase shelf. It’s time to move on from bunnies to other creatures. In the mean time, here’s some odd birds……

The green parrot and sapsucker hummingbird were not happy that a bunch of groundhog faeries moved into the neighborhood.

They liked to spit blueberry juice.

And now for something different…

It was a quiet day in the woods, until Raleigh and Lotus got lost.

Carla Sonheim has a book and classes called “Imaginary Creatures”. They’re excellent for finding ways to create creatures from your imagination, or even real ones with personalities you wouldn’t normally thought of on your own.
