It's not quite spring...

...but here's another birdhouse from Brian Curtis' "Drawing from Observation" (exercise 11.8).  And that's the last of the birdhouses - next week, it's on to biomorphic forms!

Yes, you should be frightened.

Things are going slowly....

Especially for this guy. He's for James Gurney's "Art By Committee" of course - this months line was 
"Randall's avatar was a tortoise." 

I had so much fun drawing the tortoise that I never got around to Randall. The whole thing reminded me of GĂ©rard de Nerval, a poet who used to walk his pet lobster on a blue ribbon through the Palais Royal gardens in Paris.

I would imagine that you would end up with  a seriously annoyed lobster after a while. Tortoises seem a bit more easy-going.

I put the Christmas ornaments away

I mean, come on people. It's February. Yeesh.

I've got shopping bags instead! I really like these ones - they're from Shoppers Drug Mart, and they fold up into themselves, like the windbreaker I used to have when I was a kid (apparently they still make  them )

For some strange reason, I've only seen these nifty shopping bags at one store, and I bought every single one they had.
