Simple shapes 2

cat

Today’s continuation of the simple line drawings from yesterday, this time with lighter-coloured outlines and animals, while staying with the same palette as before. It’s getting a bit closer to the look I was going for, but not quite there yet. Will experiment further tomorrow.   Top Canary:   Curled Cat:

Simple shapes 1

doodles 2

I just started using the messaging app called “Line” and it has some really cute emoticons. I tried to find an image of them online but I’m not sure what the emoticon set is called, but it’s the set on the lower right here, from this blog post. The emoticons use really simple linework, pastel …

Making lemon (tree tragedy) into (lemon tree) lemonade

We recently had a record-breaking snowfall here in Z├╝rich, which also happened to be the first real snow of the season. Unfortunately, I thought my lemon tree would be okay on our covered patio, but after three days of snow, I noticed that the tree was looking really droopy. I brought it inside, but it …

Coaster Toaster

My friend just moved into a beautiful new apartment, so as a housewarming gift, I presented her with the Coaster Toaster. Inside the felt toaster are four buttered-toast coasters, also made of felt. Basic instructions for the coasters (not the toaster) in the link below!

Through the door

birdgirl

This drawing evolved out of some stick-people doodles I did while listening to a lot of language-learning videos. Originally, the birds were inside the cage-dress, kind of like feathery clothing. When I made a second version, I realized that the birds were so trapped and that it would make more sense to free them. Once …

Under my umbrella

umbrella

It’s been non-stop rain all summer around here, and ironically, on the one sunny day all week, I end up drawing a girl with an umbrella! I was inspired by the lovely vintage Morton Salt ads, like this one: There’s several iterations of the Morton Salt girl, and they’re all really cute and eye-catching. Since …

Cakegirl

I’ve been eating a lot of cupcakes over the past few days, thanks to Cakewrecks.com making me hungry. Then, I saw a photo online of a girl in a layered dress that reminded me of a cake. Basically, I have cake on the brain. And in my mouth. So I drew this today, and found …

Fly Home

Fly Home web

This past summer, the warmth and the abundance of tasty fruits brought along quite the Drosophila infestation in my kitchen. I’ve found with experience that the best way to get rid of them is to set out a tall jar or glass with some fruit at the bottom (nectarine pits work best) and just wait …
