I noticed this quail at the top of a tree during one of my walks out in the desert. It was perched quite regally and I thought it was worthy of a sketch.
I don’t know why people in cars always feel the need to stop for pedestrians. I’m not talking about when I’m half way into the street. I’ll thank you to stop at that point. It’s when I’m half a block from a crosswalk and the person is sitting there smiling and waving like a mad man for me to go.
I mean, the guy in the car could get out of the way really quickly but instead, he forces me to hurry up and get across the street fast so I don’t feel like a jerk holding him up. I don’t want to be rushed. I’m already walking, I don’t need to enhance my exercise.
Some people even stop when they have a green light or when they’re at a stop sign and there’s no one else around. Just go! I understand trying to be nice but at some point we need to keep traffic moving people.
For a while now I’ve kicked around the idea of using some old and new drawings as pages in a coloring book. There are plenty of coloring books out there with perfectly drawn mandalas and flowers. So I’ve started choosing things that are a little, different. Below is an example of one of the different drawings that I plan to use as the base to one of my pages. I’ll have to expand it a bit and add more features so there is more for someone to color in. But it’s a start.
Have an idea for a coloring page subject that you’ve never seen in existing books? Let me know.
I came across this old sketch that I did a while back. I have no idea why I drew it or what was on my mind at the time. This is another example of a free-sketch that I probably used to get over creative block. I thought I would post it here for fun, just one endothermic vertibrate to another.
