It has been a couple weeks since I did anything for IF. Been doing personal work and I also just got a small freelance assignment! :-D I am starting my sketchbook for the Art House Co-op. My theme is "In Flight." When I saw that this week's topic was Caged I felt that I could merge the two somehow as I am trying to do personal/professional work together in a timely manner. I suppose this drawing is the opposite of something being the bird is being set free. I always seem to do peaceful illustrations! :-D Medium is pen & ink. The texture is from putting a layer of acrylic gesso was one of those "happy accidents."

Big Cupcake

I'm feeling inspired by food art, still lifes, etc. right now. I did a bunch of cupcake sketches in my sketchbook a while back and now I have begun to choose the ones I like best to make into final pieces. This is a drawing of my first one. The dimensions of this particular piece are 14"x17." Color to come later.
