Lil’ Monsters – Wolfgang’s Mom

Working on the Lil’ Monster Family. Say, “hello!” to Wolfgang’s Mom (in the early draft stage).

Color confusion:Originally, I intended to make Mom yellow,with a plan of making the family members different colors; the kids would be green, to reflect the mixing of the blue and yellow parents. However, I went with pink in this draft by suggestion of my nephew as he handed me the markers that he thought would be best for Wolfie’s Mom. I will share his monsters in an upcoming post.

These digital drawings were made in Sketch Book Pro on my iPad.

I messed around with different brushes for horns and tail effects, but have yet to make up my mind.

Favorite paintings at DAM!

We had a great day at the Denver Art Museum! We saw lots of art of the Americas–all of the Americas you could ever think of: Mesoamerica, South America, North America, American frontier, Native American, pre-Columbian America, you get the idea…

Here are some of my favorite pieces of art.

Grendel Under Cover

It seems I have failed to keep up with my promise to post a Grendel a Day all month. Other artistic inspirations have sidetracked me from creating a piece of Lil’ Girl cat art to pair with each of Lara’s photos.  In the meantime, expect to see more Grendel along with whatever inspires me in the moment.
