July 20, 2017


Another drawing... oh my... I have to start taking pictures of other things too! Anyhow, I'm really glad I did this one (The cast of Trainspotting 2 as if they were Vikings). The idea came up right at the beginning of the month and I really wanted to try it out, so I'm glad I got to it. It was way harder than I expected, didn't turn out as I expected, but I'm taking it as a win because I DID it and for today... that's good enough.


My candy house is done and ready for the sale on Friday and it turns out I am the only one who made one. Not sure what to do with it. Saw the doc today, lots of tests ahead. I'm so stressed I can hardly eat. Feeling rough.

That is the coolest idea for an art project ever Shannon! Where did you come up with that idea? Amazing!

Shannon said...

I love your Candy House Suzie! How odd that no one else made one. What is that about? Sorry to hear all the doc stuff is so stressful. I hope you can eat more soon, especially if there is Pad Thai!

Shannon said...

Oh... I was inspired by a prompt from the Sketchbook Summer project, they had a prompt of vikings on the same day I watched Trainspotting 2 so... I just seemed logical to put them together :)

Thanks Shannon! There are some people working on them and they're going to display them around the studio later but yeah, I don't know how that happened that I was the only one done. Perhaps because I did all the painting at home.

Wow, that Sketchbook Summer project is really working for you, isn't it? So cool!
