What makes a monster.

Witch monster scares you most?

This is a doodle from my IPhone’s digital sketch book called, ‘Tiny Pink Sketchbook’, made with Paper 53. I doodle anytime I get a minute, most sketches are connected to the part of my brain that I can’t always talk too, until it draws me a picture. Lots of artist have verbalized this in different ways… enjoy.

The witch makes me wonder what makes them frightening? She has no claws, teeth, fur, muscles, or slim which makes her the most interesting monster. Drawn as ugly green women to make us shrink in our theater chair but looking closer she is now my favorite classic monsters depicted reading books. Smart girls make folks run in fear?

What makes a monster.

‘The gravity of the earth is pulling me down.’, says Swamp Thing.

‘The best place to lay eggs?’ The slimy creature thinks as it watches you skipping rocks. ‘A host to houses my eggs, something warm and tasty.’ Swamp thing thinks as it silently slips into the cold dry air. Looking down at reflections in still eye. She smiles at you after your breath is gone, ‘What a happy nest this will make. I’m such a good mom.’ She smiles as you’re dragged under.

Kinda grossing myself out with this one.

What makes a monster.

The werewolf haunts the countryside unable to find home. Between the villages and the trees family on both sides of the divide, but unable to join.

Lots of stories about the werewolf as a way to understand the natural world. Other stories of a rabid animal who wants to destroy the world.

What makes a monster.

Next monster is Frankenstein’s creation, making something that can’t be predicted. Who will be the lucky one, the survivors.

There is a lot to take apart, like why is a reanimated biological entity scary? Why do we fear it?

What makes a monster.

The Dracula, a force of mystery and seduction. It’s a undead force with a cunning mind, that plots and is vengeful. It is the teeth that we associate with power, a vehicle for the blood that it needs.

Alpharetta Scarecrow Sketches

The Alpharetta Scarecrow Event

Sketches for the AIA Scarecrow for the 2017 Scarecrow festival.

Getting help from the students and parents to make this Peace Plant. Lots of sketches and pairing this with lessons going on for ‘Peace Day’ lessons. The idea of ‘Peace Day’ was a big influence on this design and the inspiration for the ‘Solar Powered Peace Plant’.

The school broke up into teams to create meaningful content around the idea of Peace on Earth.

1. Collecting and preparing items to be up-cycled.

2. Writing articles about what ‘Peace’ mean to them.

3. Talking pictures and collecting media. Then uploading and creating webpages for AIA website.

4. Using the leaves to tag the build efforts and the site to detail what Peace means to them.

Up-cycling at AIA!

Hello kids, parents, and friends, we need your empty items! Plastic and more to up-cycle for the Solar Powered Peace Plant scarecrow.

Later that week…. tons of goodies… We are so grateful to all those who donated and are making this crazy idea possible.

The Dream

The Peace Plant… What do you want this thing to look like? Thinking about what will loot great, But how will we build it, LOL? What are we building, follow along and see.

drawing from Youtube?

Looking around on YouTube and found online figure drawing videos. Very neat stuff, I felt a little clumsy with the remote, iPad, Apple Pencil, and sitting on the couch. The videos are timed and the lighting is nice.

Stay tuned for more drawings

It was hot

An AC malfunction, or a reason to get naked

I came home early it was hot. Flicked controls on the thermostat. Nothing worked, which way is on? Heat cause it’s hot, that doesn’t sound wrong. Open a window, fiddled with the lock, left or right, it would not pop. Sweat, just a drop. That was it for me. I did care who might see. Flung coat and sweater over my head, shed skirt and tights passed my feet, now lounge bare to enjoyed the heat.

New Suit

By the Pool in a new suit

New Suit

The first warm day, the air is clean.
I was to long curled within, sun nibbles willing skin.
I dip my toe, that’s as far as I will go.

Nothing is getting wet. The suit I bought to match the lot, will wait till it is hot.
I smile as the children play, enticing me to join the fray.
From chattering teeth they shout ‘COME IN’, but it’s a bit too cold to swim.

Early

woman sitting on a sandy landscape

Fifteen minutes that’s all I get. Just time enough, time to sit. It’s just three take-five’s rolled in one. Early is on time for some.  Just me, my time to breath. I see a spot and feel the breeze. The sun warm on my skin, feet in sand the cool below. Alone but soon they’ll show, In my head I’ll greet them all, “Hello, and welcome y’all”.

Fly go by

woman flinging her top like a rubber band

Fly go by

Buzz buzz a nasty thing woke me from a sun filled dream. I saw a Fly go by, so I took my top off and sent it high. I pulled and pulled till the strings went twang then I launched at that tiny thing. It took a sec I used my eye aiming carefully down the line. The Fly saw me cocking back and almost had a heart attack. With a bit of a huff the fly began to fuss. “Me!” it said, “Oh no, why would you go semi-nude, just to swat this awesome dude”.

Fields of Flowers

 Fields of flowers

Fields of flowers first pink and blue, I bought a suit that will sneak me through. Then today purple and yellow. I have been waiting all week things are on schedule. I bought this suit weeks ago to match a landscape, I’m not allowed to go. The bunnies will be playing ball, I will creep softly among them all. They will not see me. ‘Shh’, is what I think as one comes near. I hold my breath with hope and fear. It’s little nose sniffs the air. I feel so happy then I see… they are all staring at me. All at once they charge my way. I jump but i’m too slow. They tickle me from head to toe. I guess they just want to play.

More new, old cat paintings.

I have been painting cat since Florida. My now wife had a cat and it was hard not to like it. Ester was a wonderful calico that inspired many cat drawings and paintings. This is one of them.

Thanks to the inhabitants of 6061!

Late Night Monster

This is an old piece I found hiding in a friends room, it was never finished. I thought about re-working the canvas but decided to digitally work it instead. This is my first attempt. I’m using Paper53 on the iPad with a digital stylus ‘Pencil’, all very strange and fun. #madewithpaper / fiftythree.com
