Index Drawings

A couple of weeks ago someone brought over a couple of boxes of old business index and business related books to the studio for me to use. The books date back to the 1970's, even further back, and are a mixture of hardback and paper back manuals. I have been thinking of what all I could do with the books, some will be altered books, some cut up for collage, and others I decided could be sketch books. So, my family and I went to Virginia to visit with my Grandmother and I took one of the index books along to just doodle and play. I wound up filling most of the book and saw a bit of a style change as I flipped through all the doodles.
Here is one: Index Drawings: Studious Lake Monster

Dreaming Nefertiti

Been very busy work on the Birds A to Z book and building inventory for upcoming fall arts and crafts events. One of the pieces I have been working on lately is one of Nefertiti, or a figure resembling her. It has been a challenge but I like how she turned out so far. Hopefully I will be finished soon.
