Filed under D for Deer

Here's a piece that I finished up last night. I really like using non traditional paper for drawings as opposed to boring ole' white. Can someone please tell me why colored pencil isn't an accepted medium of high art? Some of us just don't like to paint. You can't really tell because of the image but "deer" is listed on this page.

I've got nothing.

I've been crazy busy lately with work, entertaining out of town guests, and getting various things sorted out and unfortunately my daily sketching has suffered. I think at the end of the year I'm going to finish this daily sketch business and use this blog specifically to promote the work that I'm proud of instead of posting every single thing I draw on here. Speaking of every single thing I draw, here's a halloweeny girl that I plagiarized from a vintage Halloween card. Sometimes the best way to get out of a drawing rut is to draw someone else's drawing. I wish more things these days were thoughtfully hand made instead of cold and mass produced. In the bubble of Portland along with the advent of Etsy there seems to be a backlash of people wanting locally produced and hand made items over mass production, but I've yet to see this trend hit nationally. Oh well, one of these days I suppose.
