Fish Surveys, house work and YouTube videos

Here for my monthly blog post. Mostly been busy with my job and working on little projects around the house. My boyfriend and I have been very busy making a little homestead for ourselves – and I am enjoying it tremendously! 

Anywho…along with getting back into streaming – I also have been trying to upload some videos on YouTube when I can. May latest videos include redrawing kid coloring book pages in my style. So far both videos are from a dinosaur book – but I do plan on getting different subject matter other that dinos. If you are interested in watching those videos check out my YouTube page. Link is in the banner. 

Other than that I have been drawing when I can and getting back into playing ARK.

#Dinocember Challenge

Back in December I started the #Dinocember challenge, as the name suggests it consists of drawing dinosaurs (or other ancient critters) through out the month of December. It took me until the end of January to complete it but I did compete it. You can see the full spreads of my sketchbook on my Instagram

I am in the works in cleaning up the images and making a small booklet out of it. Just so I have a crisp version available. I have yet to decide if I want to make it a product on Etsy or not. 

Well that’s what I got for now. 

Smell ya later. 


Rufffed Grouse Commission
Ruffed Grouse Commission

Recently received a commission to do a Ruffed Grouse in gray scale. It was a nice change of pace to do something in just pure graphite. The client has a resident Ruffed Grouse that is very friendly and likes the spend time on his porch. So the client wanted something of him so he can put holiday cards. The picture about is only a crop of the bust since I didn’t want to show the whole piece in respect of the client. However this grouse had very distinctive thigh feathers which I thought was neat. My favorite part of the piece has to be the face though. Really like how the area around the eye came out.

All in all a really fun piece to work on and I hope to get more commissions in the future.
