Day 1103 Blind contours

Our three old Jack Russells – Charlie the best jack russell ever til Zoe, Jazz Manic feature and Susie super mom.

A few more oldies from The box.


Blind contours. Something I haven't done for a while. You are suppose to keep your pen always on the page while looking only at whatever you are drawing.

Of course I had to color some of them. Jazz had big funny feet even though she was a tiny dog.

The jack Russell state. As in when are u going to play ball with me?




all of these are blind contours of Jazz.
They are just delightfully wonky sketches done in a minute or two.

Hmm well she did have very short legs and a really long body. Maybe she was a daschund disguised as a jack ,,.

Ttyl tomorrow's Saturday. You know what that means.

Day 1102 Cleaning out

Getting ready to move shelves so a room can be painted I am going thru a box of old papers photographs for painting and sketches. Sometimes I will sit down with a pile of paper and just draw whatever I see. Less commitment with typing paper.

Bones was a sweet long haired stray cat that someone dumped in our neighborhood. Thin as a rail when I started feeding her and of course pretty soon she was in the house. Oops.

Eventually she went to live with my son in Atlanta.

Jamming herself into bookcases seems to have been her thing. Cats do the funniest things.

I should pitch these but have a feeling they are going back in the box with the photographs.

Sketched with a black Pitt pen. Love Pitt pens. They are hard to kill. Tips hold up to my hard treatment of them. The ink is India ink so it's permanent. And they just don't seem to dry up for years. I know I have some ten years old. A record I am sure for a felt tip pen. Only sharpies seem to last as long.
