A progress shot today, of my sketchbook. ✒️
I'm starting a new pet portrait, the pencil is all laid out and I need to start with the ink. I always get a bit nervous to put down that first line... So to warm up I doodle something in my sketchbook. Today's doodle turned into more of a drawing and so the pet portrait waits another day! (it's going to be a great one though)

Messy desk in the background as always. Guess the bird again??

•first breath• 
Another #weeklyspread in my #bulletjournal 
This mother and calf killer whale pair have become a sweet learning experience for me. 💕

Researching these incredible creatures has been fascinating! I had to see what kind of markings would look realistic for these two. I didn't know that males and females have such distinct size differences! Various pods of these whales have different diets, specializing in hunting either fish -- or sharkes -- or aquatic mammals! Among the different oceans of the world, these whales have several variations in size, coloring, body shape, and markings. 
I would love to see one with my own eyes! 😄 What is an animal you would like to see for yourself? .

THROWING LINES! This little “Dung Beetle” is taking shape... I just brought the lines into the computer and now begins the real fun! I have the distinct pleasure of making a bug that has a nice little cinnamon bun of feces on his back. Damn, I love what I do! New design coming tomorrow folks, stay tuned 🤓 #wip #bloomsbrand

Januart Tag 22 - Wärme
Eben noch gezeichnet, da ich gestern nicht so fit war 🙄

Ich bin die totale Frostbeule! Bei mir zuhause ist es immer recht warm, da gewöhnt man sich schnell dran 😂 am liebsten sitze ich im Bett, zwei Decken und dann noch eine Wärmflasche dazu! 😁

Faber Castell Pitt Artist Liner, Touchfive Marker, Spectrum Noir Marker und Rotbart Marker sowie Sakura Gelly Roll auf Clairefontaine Paint on Papier.

 #wip of my pipes project. i was originally going to do a really careful study with pencil underneath (you can see where i started this at the bottom) *but* i decided the creative process would flow easier to just go straight to ink. so, consequently, things are a little wonky but hopefully it will still turn out pretty neat. ✨ #art #drawing #pipes #urbansketching #penandink #pigma #micron #sakuraofamerica #penandinkalliance #crosshatching #hatching #linedrawing #blackworknow #illustration #illustrationnow #beautifulbizarre #brutsubmission #inklouvre #artshit #artcollective

This drawing is of a vampire squid. I been seeing a lot of people drawing creepy sea creatures such as this and I thought I’d give it a try. I wanted to draw something with tentacles that live deep in the ocean. Have a good day y’all.

I started creating these vision books in 2013 as an exercise to get more focused in my creative goals and ultimate lifestyle. So with the help pf my wonderful coach @jennlee and her fun methodolgy to realize a dream, I created two books that were filled with images, hopes, dreams of what I wanted for my life. .
I spend most of my days in front of a computer or at events so this process really helped me exercise my right brain (where I love to thrive) by cutting out pictures from magazines to scribbling with markers. I would say about 90% of my major goals were accomplished in my 2013 book but the most important thing was the process of focusing on what I truly enjoyed doing, and making it visual. There’s something magical about that. Go ahead and create one of your own 😊

This movie quote may not be too recognizable but is one of my favorites- in part because of the delivery and also because of how it takes a positive spin on a bad situation. A good attitude can make a world of difference!

Be sure to celebrate National Handwriting Day tomorrow by writing something down in your own unique style!

THINGS ARE GETTING SKETCHY! Yep, so I’m thinking that I’m going to go for the top down, scientific identifier kinda look for my “Dung Beetle” design. Big ol’ twisty pile of dookie on a weird little beetle body. What more could you want? Fun fact: beetles are fuckin annoying to draw. Kinda like when I thought to myself “Hmmm, a snake doesn’t seem so hard, it’s just a big long boy...” I’ve been wrong before and I’m sure I’ll be wrong again. Unless I’m arguing with my wife, then I’m always right. New design coming down the pipeline, stay tuned for the finished version (I swear it will look better than this!) 🤓 #wip #bloomsbrand

I love the blackbuck; this creature became somewhat of a mascot for @100inkanimals, appearing on both a postcard and sticker. Representing the power word NECESSARY, Blackbuck wants you to consider your essential needs and to heed them. We often forgo daily requirements: enough sleep, drinking water, eating well, exercise or stretching. Make sure you start to prioritize these important things as we head deeper into 2019 🖤✨
