Day 950!! It’s Saturday¬†

Busy day! Hard to believe in 50 more days I have been blogging daily. 

I didn’t quite finish her. Had to leave at second break but I do think she’s interesting. Her thigh is too big and her right elbow is too high. Both easy fixes. And I think the shadow on her jaw is a bit dark. Ear. Oops never got around to adding details. But I can. Of course will I is the question? Maybe?!  

She was up high above me on a box and I sat in a low chair with the board just a foot off the floor. Loving the Winsor purple with the Indian yellow. Flesh rigt out of the liquitex tube. 

Here she is at first break. She’s 24×36″ and the figure is big. Almost life size. 

A fun bit of cartoon homework. Imagining what goes on in a hen house b

The last old house on upper Broad Street downtown in Augusta sitting in the middle of a car lot. Somebody said there were three blocks of these houses that ran from 1300-1500 block of Broad Street. Sad to me they are all gone. The last three are just shabby or derelict like this one. The first floor windows are really boarded up but I didn’t want to do that to it. Upstairs lots of windows are knocked out. 

Here’s the sketch. Stillman and Birn alpha drawn with a Lamy EF and Lexington grey ink.  Ted Nuttalls transparent palette.

The other two houses a few doors down still lived in though shabby.

Day 949 OOPPPs

Slated to appear on the local dr Sketchys page as the logo I think it’s the logo. Well will let you know!!


Went to Dirty South Burlesque at Le Chat Noir and almost forgot to blog tonite.  OOPPS. On the up side is I have NOT laughed so hard since….well I don’t know when. It was so FUNNY!! 
This is the cast at the finale. 

And then everyone dances. But I had to take pics. 

More of the dancing and 

Yes more. Lol

Did I say I have one at least free tickets to this at least three times and never gone. Well as I told Princess Augusta NO MORE!! I will be using them!!!

While we are on the subject of Chat Noir here are the rest of the dr Sketchys sketches. 

All but the last one are done with a Pentel brush pen, whisky painters box with Winsor newton watercolors plus Daniel Smith Quin coral in a super aquabee 11×14″ tablet. 
She was leaning on an exercise ball which I turned into the Chat Noir cat. Lettering in this one is done with a noodler Konrad. 

This was a challenge to turn the exercise ball she sat on into a cat. 

Turn her into a margaritas ad. I really wanted to put her on a glass but I didn’t have enough room.

Add a tropical animal. I turned her into Jane because I was tired of drawing her bikini. 

We had to draw her three times. Which is all I did. I never did the challenge. Oops. 


The End Fini Caput Finished drawn with caran Dache neocolor ii which were sprayed with a mister and allowed to drip. 

Gooodnite.  Tomorrow’s saturday. You know what that means!! 

Ttyl Margaret xoxoxox whose off to bed. Well as soon as the dog comes in.
