Squirrel sketch

Welcome to August! For the past few days, I have been fervently returning to my pencils and inks and sketchbook. I never quite know how or where the creative pendulum is going to swing, but I’m happy for this unexpected deep-dive back into drawing (let’s see how long it lasts). I’ve also welcomed a new addition to my art supply family: gouache! More on this in a later post.

I thought I’d kick off this spate of drawings by sharing an oldie. It was drawn in 2012, when I was living in Chicago’s Hyde Park – alongside some of the largest squirrels I have ever seen.


Happy Weekend to you!

  1. Love your squirrel, you are very talented! It reminds me of the Beatrix Potter books. So for your felted dolls book, you can create an entire illustrated story along with it (surely you must see that a book is in your future, if not several books). More drawings, please!

    1. Thank you for the kind encouragement, Agnรจs. I am a big fan of Beatrix Potter, so that means a lot! And I was just thinking of doing a series of deer pictures or stories. ๐Ÿ˜€ Cheers, and hoping you enjoyed a great weekend!
