Little Paper Sheep

I hope your week is going well and is feeling springlike and full of new energies. 🙂

Nothing too big to report on my end this day, except that I had a hankering to make some little paper sheep – a combo of watercolour paper and Black Magic india ink (I love that stuff). Since teensy sheep call for teensy scissors,  I was aided by a quite portable pair of Swiss Army scissors. The little ones that, very much like these sheep, you can put in your pocket.

I’m not yet sure what to do with these sheep or where they’ll find their home; for the time being, I’m letting them explore their new environment on their quite wonky paper feet.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Spooky Toucan

Toucan pam (1001x1024)

I drew this bird a while ago.  Missing out on sunlight in the thick of Swiss autumn, I had it in mind to make an image for myself that I could hang on my wall and look at to be reminded of sunnier, happier climes.

The end product ended up looking awkward and spooky.  This toucan appears to know something that the rest of us don’t.  He is Sam’s darker and less-loved sibling.

How very appropriate for Halloween!  So, instead of vultures, owls, crows, and ravens, I propose my vaguely sinister Halloween toucan.
