Watch out, Patrick Markle, Brina Schenk is infiltrating The Blue Toque! I’ve always wanted to have some of my illustrations for sale somewhere and Tanya approached me about displaying some ink work on her walls. Of course I do! How cool is it to meet people who loves your work enough to look at it every day.
I hope to replace artwork as it’s sold. I better keep drawing as these are all originals, not prints.
I have all these drawings in my house. Tons of them. I’ve been drawing and painting almost every day for along time and my walls, storage and drawers are starting to fill up. Maybe, it’s time I start thinking about what I’m going to do with them all. I certainly can’t part with a few of them yet, we’re still in a relationship, but some of the other ones, I think I should try and say goodbye…or “until we meet again.”
A few white frames were purchased, just to see what some of my illustrations look inside them…and I got even more excited. They look fabulous!
I used acrylic paints for the background but drew with a black and white pen. The first attempt was the 3 people (I referenced an old black and white photography book I found at the dump) and I liked the fun white highlights so I tried the giraffe in the same style. The landscape was only white on the colourful background – this is a result of just zoning out.
There was not a single bug going around Fernie that I didn’t catch in the last 3 weeks. I’ve had pink eye, chest colds, head colds, throat infections and lastly, the flu. On top of that I also had some problems with my wisdom tooth.
While unable to sit up more than 5 minutes this weekend, (thank you, flu) I decided to quickly sketch something and I ended up really liking it because it’s a good representation of how I felt. Cold and blurry.
Then I pass out again.
