What a year it’s been, huh? And we’ve still got a week of 2020 to go before we can start looking forward to (hopefully) a better 2021. Your holiday this year may have looked different from other years. Mine certainly did. But, sometimes doing things differently gives a new perspective – and, dare I say it – a deeper meaning. If this year has taught us anything, it’s that we need meaning and connection in our lives. I, for one, am so grateful to all of the friends and family who have continued to cheer me on my illustration journey. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you and am sending you Merry Christmas Wishes!

My time at the drafting table today…
Was limited. After all, there were waffles to eat, a few lovely presents to unwrap (we stuck with a $50 gift budget this year), and a Buche de Noel to make. But I did create the whimsical drawing above and also started working through Start with a Scribble – Drawing for the Artistically Undiscovered – a book by Quentin Blake that I told Santa I wanted. (Because going back to the basics is always a good idea!)
I also posted a new drawing video…
Which you can see here:
Once again, little Ziggy was a good sport and let me include him in my video. As you can see, he, too, continues to cheer me on in his own way!
