Lion Rampant

For my brother's birthday I designed and spray painted a rampant lion to a Masterlock file box. My lion is based on the one depicted on the Royal Standard of Scotland.

Man Rapunzel

The challenge was to take an existing character and draw them as the opposite gender.

I tried a different technique with this one. I inked the drawing by hand and colored it with gray scale markers. Then I scanned it and added the color in photoshop. It is probably not something I would do again in the near future because it was about twice as much work as just coloring it with colored markers in the first place. I do like how it turned out though.

Studio Update

I am always interested to see other people's works spaces and I thought you might too. Remember that work bench I made last year? I am now quite settled in. You can also see part of the second work bench that we made for Richard. It wasn't quite as complicated because we didn't need to fit a flat file in it.

And of course our dutiful helper Oliver Wiskers in her favorite spot, right in front of where I am trying to work.

Recycled No. 2 Pencils

Now available at the Plaid Peacock! I started with pencils that are made from recycled cardboard and news paper and sanded their surface. Then I cut up the inside of security envelops, books, and maps to decorated them with. They are finished off with a clear coat and a white pencil cap eraser.
