Day 30 of the Drawing Challenge: Congratulations banner

I'm suppose to draw a congratulations banner but I only celebrate with cake ! :)
I did leave you a piece but er... Heinrich thought it was for sorry.
Thanks for the great feedback throughout this whole challenge, sharing my art with you has really made my month. Look out for the new series 'Tales from the Nest' starting this Sunday !

Day 16 of the Drawing Challenge: Inspiration

Honestly for me it's the most random things, from a dress pattern, to a line in an 80's song to the surface of a leaf. I note the things that inspire me and then pull them out, combine them, and apply my own spin.

Day 11 of the Drawing Challenge: Turning point in your life

My teaching job at the Grand Anse Playgroup.
At this job my childhood was reawakened, not only did this job reaffirm that I was on the right path with my art but also made it a certainty that my work would always connect to children.
In the end I realized that the children taught me as much as I taught them.

Day 7 of The Drawing Challenge: Favorite Movie

Jane Austen's Persuasion (1995 adaptation)
Love this movie/book: it's about second chances, not losing hope and figuring out what you want from life.

Day 6 of the Drawing Challenge: Favortie Book

I have to go with God of Small Things.
It's set in India, it revolutionized the way childhood is portrayed in Asian literature (airport fairy!) and why oppression in society is wrong.

Day 5 of the Drawing Challenge: Best Friend

I'm grateful to be able to count best friends on one hand but I went with my first bestie, my eternal person propper - my sis. I have illustrated this by way of owls.

Day 4 of the Drawing Challenge: Favorite Place

Childhood Treehouse !
The first response was home, but then I remembered this treehouse that a family friend built for my sister and me when we were little. It was plain, a roughly cut doorway, it literally looked like a large doghouse, but to us it was heaven.
And yes the precarious tilt of the house was exactly how we had it !

Day 3 of the Drawing Challenge: Favorite Food

For my favorite food I would have to go with Caribbean green pea soup ! Usually filled with yummy dumplings , carrots, potato and your choice of meat. FYI this taste nothing like canned green pea soup. ;)

Day 2 of the Drawing Challenge: Favorite Animal

Hard one to choose but I finally decided on a piggy.
I remember being obsessed with having a pig as a pet for a few years; for those of you who may get to have a piggy pet in the tropics I have also added some tips on petcare...

Starting 2013 right !

Happy New Year everyone ! So for every month of 2012 I attempted to do the 30 day Drawing Challenge but never even got close to starting it. On Tuesday January 1st 2013 I finally started !

Here is the Drawing Challenge :

And here is my first entry (created yesterday) - Day 1 : Draw Myself, I went with an early morning (just got out of bed) pic complemented with bird and a touch of villainy.
