HoHoDooDa 2013 Day 10

I'm starting late with the HoHoDooDa 2013 challenge, which is to do a holiday related sketch every day for the month of December (see here or other participants), though my previous posts this month have been mostly Christmas card related. Here is a quick sketch playing with the headless snowman idea I used for a card earlier

Christmas Cards IV: The Wooden Toy

My next mini christmas card, pencil and watercolor, 3.75" x 5.5". I've started using slightly bigger (and better quality) watercolor paper for my cards. I've broken down early regarding my "not using Santa" rule ...

Christmas Cards III: The Snowman

My next mini christmas card, pencil and watercolor, 3" x 4.5". I'm trying to keep these simple, I just sit down and draw a simple sketch in one shot (no erasing allowed!), and apply watercolor straight away. I'm still a novice with watercolor, so these cards are a form of practice for me. Unfortunately my scanner doesn't pick up a lot of the subtler details.

Christmas Cards II: IF Refrain

My second christmas card for this year is playing double duty as my post for Illustration Friday: Refrain. Pencil and watercolor, 3" x 4.5". This little girl should refrain from a late night sneak-peak at the presents...

Christmas Cards I

I'm doing very small christmas cards this year, pencil and watercolor, 3" x 4.5". If I can help it I'll avoid images of Santa and/or reindeer, but I can't guarantee that I won't run out of ideas before the end! Here is the first.

Crazy In Progress

I'm desperately trying to get my submission for the third Chainsaw Comics Anthology: Crazy finished. They've extended the deadline until December 1st, so I've got a little time. I'm doing an autobiographical account of my exploits climbing bridges with my friend after visiting the local bars in my home town. We did this often, and was the definition of crazy! Here are a few sketches from the work-in-progress. Hopefully I get it done in time!

Illustration Friday: Energy

A quick sketch colored in Inkscape for Illustration Friday's theme of "Energy"... if I had more time this would be watercolor.
