My News Digest and Flowers

I've been working on getting more sketching in my day and also on developing a warming-up daily routine - you know - to get some rough lines out of your system before you start working on main things? So while re-visiting Danny Gregory's CREATIVE LICENSE, THE: GIVING YOURSELF PERMISSION TO BE THE ARTIST YOU TRULY ARE I found a passage about Tommy Kane who starts his day by making one drawing about news he reads in new york times.
I read a few online newspapers - so why not make my news digestion more creative and productive time? And I am giving it a try for a while. Actually I started over a month ago - I am just a little behind on posts here :)

And here are some occupants of my patio :)

Illustration Friday: Hats

Sketches with color (red ;) pencil - trying to add more color to my daily sketches and not sure it really is working - but in this case it wasn't bad I think ;)

Illustration Friday: Trick or Treat

I am a little late with the IF post this week but want to share these Halloween monsters anyway.

In preparation for the Cat Book
