Earth! Fire! Wind! Water!.... Heart? Psh! Heart...

It's been a slow but relatively productive week. It was quite cold and windy for the most part and I feel a little abused by mother nature. However, there is a chance that the constant pushing and shoving by invisible substances indirectly propelled my artistic endeavors forward and lead to my ultimate productivity, so I can't really complain too much. It's nice to be doing some work in color and I'm starting to enjoy pastels. They're quick and clunky and I have more of an excuse when things go horribly awry. I would love to try using them on a larger scale than I am right now. A house burnt down across the pond from us on Mercer Island so I thought I would do a commemorative doodle on its behalf. I am also playing a little with artist inks. Not really sure what to do with them yet, but I have confidence that once we are better acquainted, they will reveal their innermost aspirations to me. Can't rush this sort of thing.


  1. I really enjoy your drawing of the house on fire.

  2. Thank you! That's my favorite too so I'm glad you like it :)
