Snowed in

Snowflakes are pouring down outside and icicles are hanging everywhere. I haven’t worked since Monday. I’m enjoying my vacation so far. Last night, I spent three hours cleaning out my living room closet, a task I’ve avoided for years. Now it’s immaculate. Right now, it’s a little after three o’clock in the morning and I’ve been drawing most of the night. I’m eating leftover candy canes, drinking hot cocoa, and listening to Overnight America on KMOX via the internet. (I used to listen to KMOX on a little AM radio back in 2000 when I was staying in a cabin in the woods with no electricity. I have happy memories of those times.)

This is a drawing of my friend Brittany Rosser, a girl I used to work with at the mill. I told her I would draw her a long, long time ago. I just now got around to it.

Hope you all have a nice Valentine’s Day.

Here’s a drawing I started last night and finished this morning. It’s a picture of Jessicka, one of my Twitter friends. I enjoyed drawing her because she has thousands of miles of hair. She actually has blue hair, but I didn’t feel like breaking out the colored pencils. Too tedious. Maybe I will later.

Now I’m going to get ready for the ice storm/blizzard that’s supposed to be coming through. I hope you have a great week.

Flo

Here is my drawing of Flo the Progressive Girl. I started it back in 2012 in one of my little black sketchbooks. It’s been collecting dust under my coffee table for a long, long time now. I came across it yesterday while I was showing the sketchbook to Angela. I had kind of forgotten about this drawing. Last night I decided to go back and add some shading and make her hair darker.

Thanks for reading. Have a nice week.
