At a birthday party, I couldn’t help making my nameplate as well as my fiance’s look creative. Doing this made me want to go buy some scratch pads. Has anyone else had this problem with expressing yourself at every moment possible? Also, have you ever created art with scratch paper? If so, what brand is … Read More
While creating this piece all I could think about was all the movies I have seen where the flowers could be the most dangerous part of a new planet. So, within my science fiction mind, I decided to create something from an unknown planet within my thoughts. What you do you think about it?
Filling a full page of colorful flowers, testing out each petal was so much fun. I used the Staedtler Triplus Fineliners for this piece. Finishing the piece with the green swirls in the back brought everything to life. Everything about this tested my ability to create something out of nothing. My challenge to you is … Read More
I have drawn a few feathers and a few dream catcher rings, but I haven’t ever drawn from start to finish a dream catcher. That is so weird to me. To show you what I am talking about, Here is the dream catching ring I was talking about. I have such an infatuation with dream … Read More
The story behind this drawing is that just as every snowflake is different, I have to believe that every raindrop is too. Each raindrop plays an important role in the survival of our planet. Without water, we would all surely perish. Although I am not an extremist in any way, I do believe that if … Read More

This piece was so delightful. For those of you who don’t know, I am a long time player of World of Warcraft, a mmorpg made by Blizzard. I have been playing since, what we like to call, vanilla wow, which simply means, World of Warcraft before any expansions. Along with playing the game, I have also … Read More
I’m not sure how I feel about this one. I literally just did it so that I could test out how the Staedtler neon triplus fineliners worked with the black ink. Surprisingly, I felt it held up nicely. The yellow had a little bleeding, but other than that, It worked out surprisingly well.
On this piece, I used the Art-n-Fly pens that I reviewed earlier. They worked out pretty nice. The smaller tips were perfect for the bubbles. When I first started this piece, I started with just a flower. However, I have just fallen in love with tentacles on flowers, It makes them seem like something out … Read More
I had a friend of mine decide she wanted a tree of life tattoo. Well, although this isn’t her tattoo, it did start out that way. However, I decided to make this one colorful! As everyone knows, I hate coloring my own art, but this one wasn’t that bad. The orange didn’t show up as … Read More
Well, today I decided to try something sorta new and sorta old. I started with a circle in the middle. Using some of the techniques and fillers I learned from zentangle videos, I added only three major features to the center. After adding everything up to the tentacles, I decided to finish it off with … Read More
I started this piece off with just a variety of flowers that I knew how to do off the top of my head. I like having something to look at when I am thinking of new ways to do the same thing differently. The problem with this is that I typically have several little doodles … Read More
Every once in awhile, I find myself severely impressed with what comes out on paper. This is one of those times. I started out with just a few lines and dots. It’s a trick I use when I just don’t know what to draw. If you have seen my office, you would know that I … Read More

So, today I just decided to doodle at lunch today. These were done around 45 minutes. They are by far not my best doodles, but I feel like it’s important to show the viewers even the pieces that didn’t take any time to complete. Using doodling as a relaxation technique has raised my production in … Read More
This doodle was probably the first piece that I actually planned out ahead of time. My first step was creating a grid. Once I created all my borders, I added in Squares and Circles in the middle so that I wouldn’t bite off more than I could chew for my first full page full of … Read More

So, here I am getting back to drawing again. instead of working on fixed and perfect mandalas, I thought I would work on something a little more… creative! I decided to mix a lot of my favorite things I’ve learned over the past few months, and I love the turnout.
As my readers know by now, adding color to my art is always stressful to me. I love leaving them black and white because I love seeing what other people see in the picture without me guiding them to one thing or another. This was no different. I had created this drawing about a week … Read More
