The past few nights I’ve been in search of the perfect* drawing.

(But first, I need to say that when I say “perfect,” I mean imperfectly perfect to ME… just a drawing that I love.)

I’ve drawn a lot of girls and horses, and a few cats, dogs, bunnies, and houses. (Steve made a slideshow, above.)

I’m using a combination of Tombow markers, ballpoint pens, pencils, and any other markers I have lying around. (And the looser style is heavily influenced by watching the wonderful Lynn Whipple draw recently… thanks Lynn!).

None of them are “perfect.”

But I do LIKE a lot of them!

This weekend I  made these three wire-and-fiber wrapped animals… super fun to make, and the stars of my next lesson for 2015: Year of the Spark, the online class I’m co-teaching with Lynn Whipple this year.

The class has been a wonderful experience so far — the participants are brilliant and inspiring! Carolyn wrote today:

Cannot tell you how much I am enjoying being a Sparklet.  I have done more art in the past month than I managed alone in a year.  Many thanks for a great course.
