Daily Doodle

Today I spent doing lots of homework and in order to offset that I must draw! It's good for me you know, really relaxing and fun. ER..did I say fun? haha. I mean helps me concentrate and focus on my home work..At least that's what I told myself today when I took some time to doodle this silly little rat guy, which my mom dubbed as Ratapuss and thus it is his name. He's just a funny little guy with no purpose other than to beg for tiny morsels!

Pen Me a Poem Mr. Keats

When I Have Fears That I May Cease To Be

by John Keats

When I have fears that I may cease to be

Before my pen has glean'd my teeming brain,

Before high-piled books, in charactery,

Hold like rich garners the full ripen'd grain;

When I behold, upon the night's starr'd face,

Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance,

And think that I may never live to trace

Their shadows, with the magic hand of chance;

And when I feel, fair creature of an hour,

That I shall never look upon thee more,

Never have relish in the faery power

Of unreflecting love;--then on the shore

Of the wide world I stand alone, and think

Till love and fame to nothingness do sink

Poodle Love

Poodles have been on my mind recently... I have been drawing them and even crocheting them! This is the result of my current obsession: a pattern! I found this lovely yarn in the sale section of a local yarn shop called the Yarn Barn and just knew when I held its cotton candy pinkness in my hand that a poodle was on the way! I am rather pleased with the result, especially with the pom poms...:) I am going to put the pattern on my etsy shop soon just have some final tweaking here and there.

Owl Always Love You

I was commissioned by my dad to make a drawing for my mother as a gift for their wedding anniversary. This is the result. My mom loves loves loves owls, as I do, and so I thought this drawing would be perfect, especially since I just finished reading this book which I mentioned in this post. In there I learned that barn owls will mate for life, and if one of the pair dies the owl will become so depressed that it will stare off into space and die too.

I will be making this a print soon I think...but just wanted to show you since I am loving the way it turned out. It is just like how I envisioned it, which always makes me very happy!
Drawn in pen and ink.

Reader's Delight

I picked up this book at my local Borders on sale and since the title was Wesley the Owl I figured it would be pretty good considering how much I love owls. I was right! It was a great book that had me laughing and loving reading it. The author Stacey O' Brien did a wonderful job. It is a true life story of an owl and his girl. I learned so much about owls but also got to live through the life of one from birth to death raised by the author herself. It really made me think about the amazing animals we share this planet with and how so many people sadly put them down, as if they were beneath them. I want to tell you everything but since I don't want to give anything away I 'll just settle for saying it is worth the read.

Modest Ambition on Etsy

I found this wonderful work on etsy by modestamibition. I saw her orange shrug and was immediately inspired and just wanted to create! I was surprised to find out that she cannot read a pattern so she just makes up her own. I am impressed, with talent like hers who needs to read patterns? I just wanted to share her incredible work with you. Do stop by her shop and blog.

After all the rain we had, so many plants that looked dead are now bright and green again! Also I found these little mushrooms out in our back yard. I love mushrooms and have missed seeing them since we lived in Germany. It was a pleasant surprise!

Sweet Music

Listening to this music kind of makes me want to cry. Maybe that's just because I am tired but I still feel like a part of me is touched when listening to it...I just love it.

Little Hedgehog Print

This is another new print I just added to the shop! This little hedgehog is one of my favorite's that I have done in a long time... I love his little dreamy look.
As for the inchworm...when I was little I was literally obsessed with inchworms and caterpillars. I would hunt them out and love the feel of them crawling on my skin. I wanted to be the size of them and explore the inner workings of trees and see how tall grass would look at that size. I would fill pages of drawings with them and even once had an inchworm inspired cake. This little inchworm is much like the ones I used to imagine with his outrageous little boots and rainbow colored body, he almost seems to walk out of my childhood dreams.
The print measures 8 1/2 by 11 inches with a small white border for framing.
Drawing was done in black ink and then colored in with colored pencils.
