Dropped Dip Pen

By in ruttan's place, watercolour

This always happens when I drop one of those dip pens. It sticks into the floor like a dagger in an Indiana Jones movie. Bye bye nice nib!

Cat Poop Collector

By in Uncategorized

I attempt to explain the cat poop collector, a device which has puzzled me this week. No, you don’t get to know what’s wrong with my cat. It’s disgusting, but not fatal, and I hope will be cleared up with a couple of pills, soon. UPDATE: The cat poop collector failed completely. I brought it […]

Edith Scissorpaws

By in cats, sketches

Young Nora was being obstreperous, as is easy to see from this photo, and she got my little finger this morning as I was trying to take something breakable away from her. So I’ve given her a new identity, as below: So there.

Still painting random faces, from DVDs, and my squirming imagination. Kind of enjoying it at the moment. Some bonus kitty-cats as well.

New Stuff…

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

.. but somehow the same. Sigh. If anyone cares, that strange object in the upper right-hand corner is a doodle of an Italian drinking fountain I made to illustrate an anecdote to someone. Coloured it in.

Extreme Norosity, and other things.

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Nora was looking cute the other night. So I painted her. Was she THIS cute? Still, pretty darn cute. More of the usual thing. A pilot woman, in front of a Battle-Star Galactica kind of thing. One of my usual sketchbook pages. Including Garlic Heads.

Cats and Dogs

By in cats, dogs, sketches, watercolour

I’ve scanned a lot of pictures I’ve been painting the last while, and am going to put them up on the blog step by step, maybe. That’s so I can post stuff every day! Or, I might put them up all at once. Who knows?

Back After a Bit

By in cats, men, paintings, watercolour, women

Didn’t blog for a while. Cause I was sick, and busy, then wasn’t doing much that pleased me. Still could be happier, but at least I’m painting some things. Not horribly thrilled with how the paper’s working. Maybe it’s always absorbed and lightened paint, but I thought that was how it worked, until I painted […]

Sunday Things

By in cats, sketches, women

I’m not relating to Sundays much. Thought I’d get some time off, but I’ve got to prepare for a meeting and some work. Still, I found time to sketch these things. Small cat, and some dame. I don’t call them watercolours because they involve the brush pen, and aren’t pure. I like modelling things in […]

The Usual Obsessive Stuff

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

The usual guys blankly staring, cats, and below, cute chicks. Just because I go out to events doesn’t mean I’m not a strange recluse. It just means there are a lot of events happening. But the video stuff is fun. Takes a long time to upload. My next challenge there is finding music I can […]

Some More Sketchbook Pages

By in cats, horses, men, sketches, watercolour, women

‘Cause of my getting a new scanner, I’ve scanned all these pages, which, up until now, were hidden in my sketchbook. Now they’re here, for all of you to enjoy! A couple of the characters here are taken from Barbara Bradley’s book Drawing People: How to portray the clothed figure. Will have to talk about […]

New Scanner

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

The new scanner is faster, and captures more detail in my wonky watercolour pics. I still haven’t worked out all the kinks, because there are more options to deal with.

New Things

By in cats, dogs, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Painted a ton of little pictures I’m pretty happy with. Above, is Mr. Boggedy on the balcony. Serious Guy. That’s also the view from my Balcony, but he’s just imaginary. More funny little pictures. The edges are masked with painter’s tape. The green type with slightly less tack, which can be “left on for 60 […]

Animules, etc.

By in cats, dogs, sketches, watercolour, women

I just like the colour. Lotsa work to do, and I’ve been slacking off. The usual worries, but I hope things will be all right.
