Celebtrity Liberties

These two drawings are from photos that I found of celebrities, which I've taken MORE than a few liberties with for they were not nude photos.

Update June 9, 2014

I started this blog way back in 2006. I started it to post some of my artwork and hopefully get some feedback and maybe a critique or two with the idea that this would help improve my drawing. My journey with art has been fun, and because of this blog, I've made many friends in the blogoshpere. 

I recently decided that I would go through this blog (I've left it in limbo this past couple of years) and revitalize it as much as possible, because my journey in learning to draw as an adult has been very fulfilling. I'm hoping that my journey in learning to draw could inspire someone else to try drawing. I started to draw at 37 years of age and with the help of an artist friend who initially got me started, and many resources that I found on the internet and bookstores to learn and 'draw from'. 

You may want to check out my Art Resources Page for I have links to various resources and links to texts that I used to learn drawing. For this post I recommend Burne Hogarth's book, "Dynamic
Figure Drawing" for I was working through that book when I found the above photos and decided to draw the subjects (with said liberties). You can get a copy from Amazon on my Art Resources page or on the image link below.
Thanks for stopping in.

Adult Colouring Pages Free to Download

Adult Colouring Pages Adult colouring books are becoming more popular, and as their popularity grows so does the price tag. I just went and bought one for my wife and the price was well over $30 CAD. That's pretty steep as far as I'm concerned. 
I bought it because I was hearing all the benefits of colouring for relaxation, mindfulness, and the like. I like to draw, and I am well aware of the benefits of drawing, but whether the benefits of drawing are similar in colouring I won't say for sure. You may want to read the article "Are You Having a Relationship with an Adult Coloring Book" in Psychology Today to gain further insight on the subject. 
After paying the steep price for an adult colouring book, I thought I would search the web to find anything on the subject, and possible free to download colouring pages. And, well, there is tons of stuff out there. Two sites that I found are quite good and have lots of pages that you can download for free. Davidrd Colle…

Back at it Big Time!!

First off, I think that I am caught up with all the Globes for the gallery for Mimi's Dona Nobis Pacem effort. Mimi Pencil Skirt is still reporting on the subject as we speak! And I have an excerpt from one of her reporter role models:


Now Mimi is on fire, furiously typing

and typing, and typing and drinking lots of

Actually both of us were burning at least one of these

(No, not books! Couldn't find decent candle pic).
I would like to thank everyone that participated in Dona Nobis Pacem, for the
gallery is wonderful. Mimi is happier than
a P*& in S*&% over the response for the first ever run.
I still have more linking to do, but I will get to it
as fast as I can.
Even though my role was small through the entire project, I found it
unique, heartwarming, humbling...It was all that and more, and I'm already
geared up for next year, but I will have (hopefully) better planning
to handle 'many more' globes.

I know I'll be better prepared than this guy ever was!

To all the G…
