Elsa - Finished!

Ah yes. Finally it is done.
We have had a lot of changes lately. Moving to Olympia is one of them. So every project was put on hold for a few weeks. But despite losing Elsa's hair piece during the move, I finally got to work on it this week. And it's finished!
I am now going to go and enjoy my best work ever - my sandwich.

It's Called Style T-shirt Design

 Because old man style is coming back. Hurrah! I do like those cars, and my husband dresses like one. So it's a win-win for us.
Check out the progress photos. We are also on Instagram, don't you know?

When I was young

This is what and how I used to draw back in the good ol' days. It's funny how after listening to other's advice, your style totally changes.

Polycrylic Fail

"What the" is right. After spending my precious time painting this face, my world got ruined. I applied the damn water-based polycrylic. Why? Because this is for a 5 year-old. And because I like to water down the acrylic sometimes to get the details right, once the water-based polycrylic was applied, it bled and smudged all kinds of details.
I tried to repaint it on top of the polycryliced layer, and now Elsa looks like every other actor on TV - caked with too much makeup. Then I tried to coat another layer of it, and it smudged again. When will I learn?? I am just going to let it set for a few days before nervously applying another coat.

Killer Whale

Whenever Dan gets board or wants to unwind, he draws. Most people (like myself) would opt to alcohol.

Here is the result of one boring evening - killer whale, doing it Native American style! It's been cut out of basswood, painted with acrylic and mounted on blue textured cardstock in a reused frame. Isn't it pretty?

People seem to really like birds. Mailed these babies to some awesome ladies. We hope they like them.

Elsa Cut Out

Elsa from Frozen is now cut out and painted front and back. Also, I have managed to paint and cut out a few other creatures for my other projects.
