Little scene seen while walking the dogs

A couple was sitting on their couch watching the Simpsons. It was such a cute little vignette; I drew it the next day from memory.

An unusual view of the bridge from a photo by @simplesimonsays. 

Here’s the drawing in just pencil. 

Scenes from Ani Ramen House

I took my husband to this cute little noodle place for lunch yesterday. He was under the weather and I thought a bowl of ramen would help. We had pork dumplings, chicken wings and two bowls of ramen. 

They had a very charming mural–drawn in white on a black background–I loved it. Took some pictures so I could share. I thought it was so cute that the dog was a Shibu Inu. 

Here’s a guy with a Mohawk hairdo slurping his noodles on some rounded steps. 
And a chair that somehow looks very Japanese. 

I really liked it but never could have drawn it in its entirety hence the sampling. Here is a shot of the mural. Very nice work!

(I Love) Gucci

Not that I have anything by them but I really love this line recently. A guy I met pulled out his Gucci wallet and I asked to take a picture of it. 

Gucci is doing some wild stuff lately. Here’s a closeup shot of the wallet:
Here is a bag I love. Only $3500. Maybe I’ll get it as a birthday present. 

I really love the wonderful textures and colors of Gucci’s recent merch. I’ll leave you with an outfit from the runway show Resort 2017. 

Gucci: gotta love it. 

Draw a Bird: 2/8/17

When I saw a picture of this wild looking creature I knew I had found my subject for today. It’s a crazy multi colored bird with some well placed dots. Nature: the best artist. 

Just in case you were wondering here is the photo (from a Facebook bird group):

Been Quiet/Magnetic Poetry Saturday

Our weekly collaboration which almost reads like a letter we would write to each other. Just waiting for spring, for birdsong, for hope. 

Fallen Tree

I took a walk in the woods yesterday during a nice part of the day. I saw many uprooted trees and decided to draw one today at work. 

A Strange but Nice Dream

I dreamed the neighborhood kids put all sorts of fairy structures around my house. They were dug into the ground in my dream. I really like the kids in my neighborhood and could actually imagine them doing this!

Beauregard

My other lab/pointer mix. I felt it was only fair to draw him since I posted Birdie last week. 

Here’s the photo. He is really a beautiful boy and a very good disposition. 

Drawing brains

img_3859

We are set up with Montclair Radiology to get reports and images of different scans. This one of a brain I found kind of fascinating. For some reason I didn’t realize that the spinal column originates in the brain. Duh.

All the scans are pretty interesting but the brain is the best by far. Here’s how the computer screen appears. You can zoom in on an image and then click through to see different views. It’s pretty cool.
