Kisa Recovers

Kisa was pretty much sick this entire week. At some point, she stopped eating and even drinking water. She would even throw up almost every day!  After staying overnight at the vet's, she made an amazing recovery. My little kiss-kiss is a trooper.  >___<

Yay!

Okay, so my old art table made its way back to me on Sunday (a big thank you to Aby and her family!) all the way from North Carolina. After putting it together (not as easy as it sounds -___-), I placed both tables close together to create a bigger work space. Awesomeness!!

More sketches from the character of "Egg."



And here's the character's sister! I promise they'll have names soon. =___=

Still not there yet...

 My new work station has a great view of the golf courses out back, but I'm still not warming up to it. It may have something to do with the copious amount of clutter all around my table. My aunt would say it's blocking my artistic chi or whatever. A trip to the store for crafty storage bins should solve this little hiccup.  ^____^

Meanwhile, my awesome friend Aby is moving to Texas soon. When I made her a birthday card in June, I couldn't help but add some cacti.

I added another thing into my overflowing pile of TO DO box. Something I made for my grandmother a while back. This piece is watercolor and ink on watercolor paper, but I'm going to try adjusting the composition, changing the color palette and repainting it with gouache. 


and here's a detail.

Sketchbook Corner #3




A glimpse into the world from the character of "Egg." I modeled these creatures after the nifty
Capybara. In this particular world, these giant rodents make for great pets and are an essential
mode of transportation.  


 I studied the type of saddles they strap on camels to create the one above.

On another note, here are the new members of the family. The orange tabby is Kaito. The one with the smile on her little face is Kisa.
