Did you have an etch a sketch?

Some of you might be muttering to yourselves right now, “what on earth is an etch-a-sketch?” Does she make this stuff up just so we go to google and look stupid. Etch-a-sketch was/is amazing. If you don’t have the courage to pick up a pencil as a kid it lends a technical element to the process, almost taking it out of your hands while cultivating hand eye co-ordination and training your eye. This is why I got one for my t-Rex. #trex #dinosaur #etch a sketch #doodle #drawing #illustration #illustrator #green #jurassic #jurassic July #dinosaur art #character #art #artist #creative #quirky #funny #fun #lol #silly #happy #sketch daily #draw every day #bam Bofu

T. rex goes all abstract

This is the real benefit of joining art groups. They push you to try new things, while I’m still plugging away at jurassic July, the Facebook groups I have joined are busy conjuring up these brilliant challenges and themes. So why not merge the two. Hence abstract T. rex. I have never even considered abstract, I know none of the big names and I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing. Feels good. #abstract #try new things #learning #dinosaur #trex #paint #painting #sketch #doodle #drawing #painter #art #splatter #silly #cute #fun #funny #lol

Working on projects

I suck at deadlines. Not just a mild suck, like the squidgy noise you get when walking through thick mud, I mean the kind of suck that a Cretaceous behemoth would make extracting itself from the mire of a stinking tar pit. I love onomatopoeia but I don’t even know where to begin with putting that into a word. Anyway, to my point. I’ve had this project (it is secret, I can’t post it until I gift it), for months. Today I’ve realised that I have to send it off to be printed in the next week and I haven’t even got past the base colours yet. #portait #doodle #sketch #dinosaur #trex #i suck at deadlines #bam Bofu #lol #cute #funny #happy #positive #cartoon #instagood #purple
