From today while I was lounging with my parents at the beach.

Oh Mother.

My parents are in town this week.

My mom created this lovely image.
I know it's dificult to believe that she's never used a wacom tablet before because of the technical and artistic geius of this piece, but it's true.

She thinks the best one is the one "with the creepy mouth."
My favourite is the one with a slice of bread head. It reminds me of Shokupanman, "Anpanman's closest and most handsome superhero friend. His head is a slice of white bread and he is the patron superman of school lunches. Shokupanman's secret headquarters is deep inside of Toaster Mountain. " If you are not familiar with Anpanman, you should go here:

Sweet living bread.

The Graduate

I watched The Graduate tonight for the first time in a while. I'd forgotten why I love this moive so much.
I did a couple of tone studies during it. I'm just trying to used to markers a bit. The last is inspired by Mrs. Robinson of course, although she looks a tad young.
I wanted to do the bit where Ben and Elaine are escaping from the church, and he's swing the cross at people, but I was getting antsy.

Another of our kind

This kid was the only other person in the Bread Garden drawing during the final.

In real life she is not an amputee at the arm. (although that sure would make drawing a challenge)

I think she was cheering for Italy....

beach kids

Here's some kiddies from the beach's like they didn't even know I was watching them.
The little boy was really into dancing around with his pail. In real life, both his arms are the same length, although you'd never be able to tell from the sketch.

I coloured them when I got home.

The pinup type girl was my first experiment with watercolour and brush pen this morning...a little bit murkey....I am like the undisciplined monkey, who sometimes cannot wait for the paint to dry before applying a new colour. Apparently patience really is a virtue.
