This is my second attempt at a wedding announcement for my oldest friend. Some elements she asked for were cats, books, coffee, and gears (her partner repairs clockwork). The first one you can see in earlier posts was a little to "dense" for her. She had trouble seeing the cat. So I decided to try a more delicate approach for is a wedding after all. The 2 colors, green and purple, were colors she had asked me for in an earlier drawing. I hope she likes this one....ha!


I made this sketch while my daughter was at her swimming lessons. I had thought to bring my sketchbook and pencils but had forgotten them, much to my dismay. All I had on me was a ballpoint pen and some computer paper. But I wanted to get my #draw365 done and I figured it never bothered me in High this is the result. While I do much better in pencil with a kneaded eraser by my side there is something to be said for working in a medium that you can't erase. It teaches you to think first and to learn to adjust your plans while you work to accommodate "happy accidents"....serendipity.
