Title:  Postage Stamp Series 3

Medium:  Paint (Windows 7 Application)

Guess what?  I graduated!  Here is what may be the last postage stamp collage, at least for awhile.  Now that my schedule is much more open, I am hoping to do more daily crafts with actual stuff (paper, dirt, my hands, etc.) as a break from all of the digital art that got me through the semester.  Happy day, all!  🙂

The Owl and the Pussycat

17 Apr

Title:  The Owl and the Pussycat & Colors

Medium:  Paint (Windows 7 Application) & Microsoft Word (Office 10)

Edward Lear’s “The Owl and the Pussycat” is my favorite childhood poem.  I remember that I had an illustrated copy of the book, but I have not been able to find the same copy since.  All I remember is that the water was very blue, the owl was brown, the cat was grey, and her dress was pink.  The boat was, of course, pea-green.  I also remember that her dress and parasol were very frilly, and they sat on a blanket on the beach eating quince.  I really wish I knew who had done those illustrations.  Poem by Edward Lear can be found here.

Title:  Postage Stamp Series 2

Medium:  Paint (Windows 7 Application)

Round two of the postage stamp series.  I really like having one of these docs set up, so that each day I can do a quick doodle while drinking a cup of tea or listening to the radio.  🙂

Title: Postage Stamp Series 1

Medium:  Paint (Windows 7 Application)

I bet you thought I’d quit the Frabjous project!  No sirree, Bob.  With grad school picking up, I do not have much time to post.  But, I have been doing these postage stamp doodles on a Paint document.  I can fit 40 doodles on a standard Paint document (unless I can figure out a way to change the canvas size), so I figured I’d just do one of these a day until life settles down.  And finally, today, after whittling away at my school to-do list, I have enough time to post the image!  🙂

It’s Chai Time I Had Some Chai!

Title:  It’s Chai Time I Had Some Chai

Medium:  Paint (Windows 7 Application)

OMG.  I apologize for that terrible, terrible play on words.  🙂  Today was a major snow day.  Everything is shut down.  I wanted to drink something hot, so I made my own version of chai, with coconut milk and extra spices.  Instead of taking a picture, I decided to doodle it.  It was tastylicious, especially since I drank it while in comfy clothes, under a blanket, in my nice big chair, reading “The Lord of the Rings.”  Perfect snow day.

The graceful jelly.

Title:  Jelly, Jelly, Jellyfish

Medium:  Paint (Windows 7 Application)

I love purple.  I love jellyfish.  This is a purple jellyfish.  Not much more to say about it besides that.  🙂  Except that this drawing makes me wish I lived closer to a nice aquarium.  I love going to aquariums.

Lumos!

Title:  The Boy Who LIVED

Medium:  Paint (Windows 7 Application)

I am really starting to enjoy these running-out-of-time-at-the-end-of-the-day doodles!  It’s a good way to see what’s really on my brain.  Obviously, today it’s Harry Potter.  For the past 5 weeks, I have been jogging 3-4 times a week while listening to Harry Potter on audiobook.  For some reason, I find audiobooks infinitely more helpful while running than listening to music.  As it’s one of my favorite books of all time, the Harry Potter series is particularly fun to jog along with.  🙂  In this drawing there is the obvious lightning-shaped scar.  The words are green, which is the color of Harry’s eyes, and the little border on the left is supposed to sortof represent Harry’s always-messed-up black hair.  Yeah, I know.  Not MoMA material.  🙂  Lumos!
