One Week in Faces

Week one.  29 Faces.

 Day Two was influenced my Tam, from Willowing!

This purple little devil was inspired by a great tattoo artist Sandi Calisto.  I love her work, and never want to attempt to be something I'm not, but since this is a challenge I decided to give it a go.  I do Sandi no justice, but that's why she is who she is  and I am who I am. So there.  No biggie.
and here is day one again... already posted, but here is the week together!

I tried to work a little differently each day.  Clearly, I don't always have time for much.  I am eager to stretch this further and further.  I am suppose to go to NY this Sunday, and plan to just sketch, however, with the storm, I guess we'll see...

Enjoying this challenge.  Find out about it here  29 Faces

and a little Paint Party Friday too!

Happy Artful Week!  Fingers Crossed I'll be drawing faces in New York!

so just a bit of happy news.  I found out that I am going to have my work in two magazines coming out soon.  I already shared my news about the Portland book in a couple posts below, but I am getting another piece published in Somerset Gallery too!  Giddy meeeee!  yay!!!  I am seriously so stoked I obviously cannot keep it in.  And here she is... well, here I am...
