White Christmas Tree (belated 18 December)

Sorry for not posting yesterday! Went on an adventure with the parents to procure an inexpensive Christmas tree. We managed to get one from a local farm stand, which looks lovely and is decorated in my mother's carefully arranged "traditional country" Christmas array.

The other half of the epic quest was for me - to track down a tacky white fake tree and multi-coloured lights to bedeck with vintage and colourful ornaments. It's great fun, and I now share it with you (courtesy of my laptop's camera):

15 December, or: Where's the snow??

And now for something completely different

Alright, not so different, actually. More silliness from my sketchbook.

14 December (Galina and the Wolf)

So, I think I got a little over-ambitious with today's drawing. Definitely pleased with the end result, though.

The Feast of St. Lucia (13 Dec)

Today is the Feast of St. Lucia. :-) Therefore, it is once again time to pull out Swedish traditions. Huzzah!

I see what you did there.

I really will doodle on any scrap of paper left in my vague vicinity. It's potentially a terrible habit. So, random scribblings from today included two female!Captain America sketches, and a Marvel-verse lady Loki. I really have no idea why.

12 Dec (belated)

I'm afraid that yesterday I had no access to an internet connection, and therefore did not upload a drawing for my advent calendar. To make up for it, have two sketches from yesterday!

11 December

We interrupt this broadcast...

And now back to our regularly scheduled holiday images.

10 December

Whew! Just made it. We didn't have internet for most of the day, and I didn't think I would upload this before midnight. Enjoy!

9 Dec

I'm afraid that I did not have as much time for drawing today as I might have hoped. I'll have something good for tomorrow to make up for it. For now, have a sketch of Bob Cratchit and Tim:

Baby, It's Cold Outside (8 Dec.)

I enjoy this song far too much. Well, the Dean Martin version anyway. The end result was that it inspired today's drawing. I'm rather pleased with it, actually.

Arbitrary Sketch-Dump

So, as a brief break from my daily holiday/winter-themed advent calendar, here are some other random sketches and doodles:

the cover of my current sketchbook

the back cover of said sketchbook

Proof that I will will doodle almost anywhere... all I require is a ballpoint pen and a scrap of paper.

...invisible biplane? ladder? railing?

Aaaand.... woading. Fun times.

6 December

Afraid that today's addition to the advent calendar is a rather quickly-doodled sketch, done specifically with the lovely Victoria in mind. She adores Little Women. At some point, I'll likely make a finished piece based on this idea, if not exactly this sketch.

4 December

So, I was going to do a serious drawing today. Then we ended up going to see the new Muppet movie. All I have to say is:

Advent, Day 2

As promised, an advent drawing!


So, I'm afraid that December rather snuck up on me, and I dropped the ball on the first day of my Advent calendar.

In the meantime, I come bearing some fun things I've been working on. These are fashion drawings for a contest over at Mod Cloth. With any luck, one of these might wind up in production as a physical article of clothing. Fingers crossed!

And, we'll be back to our regularly scheduled Advent drawings by tonight! <3

Aaaaand, we're back!
