To comply with my self imposed posting of at least once a week, I have a rare treat. Well, hopefully you will find it interesting. I have scanned in some little doodle sketches I made at lunch yesterday. I was waiting there and had a few blasts of inspiration. What to do, no paper or pen. Then I remembered I had a Sharpie marker in my coat pocket. The waitress had left me a stack of napkins. So, I made my own sketch paper with napkins at hand. The above fella is an idea I am working on for a series of rabbit themed pieces. Of course it will have my spin on it. I am thinking of rabbit goblins or something along those lines. I am not sure yet. As with many of my fellow artists out there I have Alice in Wonderland fever. Rabbits are one of those animals that I find fun to play around with artistically.
The next sketch above is an idea I had for doing a pickle themed goblin. I was eating pickles the other day and for some reason I thought one in particular just had that shape that spoke to me. I wondered what a pickle goblin would look like. Don't you all think about those things when you eat food?
This guy is a very preliminary idea for a piece I need to make for the joint meeting between my local guild and the doll makers in the Circle City group. This years theme is a doll or whatever based on an herb. We have been meeting at this amazing herb farm in Indiana the last couple of years. So, I have chosen Milk Thistle as my herb. He is going to be a grumpy little guy for sure.
Well, I think I am finally heading out of my creative slump. I need to get busy as I have a lot on my plate in the next few months. The snow has been a major downer for me. I don't drive so relying on the buses and walking is a b#@&@ for me. But, I will survive as the song goes. Have a great week y'all.
