Illustration Friday: E is for...

The first 'E' word that popped into my head was elephant which makes sense since I've been trying to work on a children's book with a friend involving elephants that I've been slow to make progress on. It's a project that intimidates me to the point where I question every line of every sketch I attempt. I will conquer it. I just don't know how yet.

For this illustration I wanted to do a decorative ornate-type piece, but as I was working that out this little guy appeared.

Illustration Friday: Sea

This sketch sort of evolved into an image that could represent my horoscope sign--Pisces. Maybe I'll atempt to create the other eleven signs sometime.

My introduction to blogging

Since initiating this blog I've already changed the name, and address multiple times. I can be quite indecisive. I spent hours trying to discover how to add my own custom header. I finally got it, but I think I broke something. This isn't viewing well in Safari on a Mac. Oh well, I'll figure that out later. I'm a complete html/css rookie, so the header feels like an accomplishment. I'm hoping that along with helping to motivate me to draw more, that posting and customizing this page will help me learn a few html basics. Then someday, maybe I'll be ready to start my own website.
