Feeling a bit crabby

Carla Sonheim's 365 class, Colored pencil, Hand Lettering, Pen & ink, Sketches, Tombow May 2, 2018

A few years ago I took a year long class with Carla Sonheim and Lynn Whipple, called Year of the Spark. One of the assignments was automatic writing in little booklets that we made just for the purpose of writing in them. I have done a bunch of them and occasionally I use them as fodder for projects such as the one below….

I had to take 8 pages of writing and boil it down into what I have written on the little poster below. One of my favorite beach creatures are the ghost crabs and I have been wanting to do projects to include them. I hope you enjoy my little crab project.

Remember, leave beach creatures on the beach!

Day 20 #30Pages30Days Today we went to Denny’s for breakfast. It’s my father-in-law’s 89th birthday and he wanted to celebrate with his friends, and get his free breakfast, lol.

This sketchbook is the #Leichtturm1917 I used my Uniball pen and Peerless watercolors. The Leuchtturm1917 is not wet work friendly but I have been making it work.

Cleo is paying us a visit. She has been an indoor apartment cat since June. She’s ecstatic when she pays us a visit because she gets to stroll outside in the screened in patio. I sketched her in a few different poses, looking longingly out at the yard. The lizards are taunting her from the other side. She’s flicked her tail a few times because she’s not happy unless she’s killing something. The screens don’t even let her kill bugs.
