Street theatre festival

Tonight was the first night of our local street theatre festival which occurs annually. I try to go see at least one show each year. This time, I was able to see 5 shows already. Of the 5, I really liked the first, a synchronized performance of two “supermarket cashiers”, and the last, a combination of tango and fire. I least enjoyed the improv show and found interesting the street performance (4 people dressed in black with yellow lines, literally performing as a moving street), and the orchestra of crows which you can see a bit in this low quality photo:

And inspired by tonight’s shows, I made this really quick drawing in less than 5 minutes.

After a long day of meeting after meeting at work and 3 hours of watching street theatre, I’m too tired to do anything more. So good night and thanks for visiting.

Tree ATC trio

My first day back to work was fine but I’m quite tired tonight. So for my daily art, I simply drew some whimsical trees on watercolor ATCs. I then colored them in with markers which I then diluted and spread with a waterbrush to have a watercolor feel. Simple and fun.

If anyone is interested in a trade, let me know!

Thanks for visiting.

Weekend update

Another busy weekend has come and gone. Once again, I kept my daily art simple with a mandala and a zentangle. I rarely draw specific shapes when doing my zentangles but this time, for some reason, I started drawing a cup. And I really like how it turned out.

For today, I went for another set of postcards. But this time, I played with watercolors. I painted rather quickly, without thinking too much and I like most of what I did. My favorite is the green “snowflakes” which were supposed to be mandalas. My brush was too big for any detail work so I left it as is. To draw on top of the other postcards, I used my Fude Ball 1.5 pen.

Dog toy

Since I already had my polyfill out, today I decided to try a no-sew toy for one of my mom’s dog. I used a piece of fleece found at a second-hand store and a “squeaky” plastic thing I found in my stash (from all the sewing stuff my godmother gave me years ago.)

I had to do a bit of sewing because my knots didn’t cover the inner curve at the top but other than that, it’s all knots. The dog loved it so much he already started breaking it! Oh no! That’s okay, I learned my lesson and will try another design for him.

I also continued doodling on the painted branch:

I guess I was in a zigzag mood today!

Thanks for visiting.

Weekend update

I decided to draw more mandalas and zentangles over the weekend. It’s easy for me to do those things especially since I usually spend at least part of the weekend with my parents. So here are this weekend’s creations:

For today, I again chose something easy as I was spending the day with my mother. She had previously painted acrylic on some branches and I started doodling on the biggest one with gel pens. It’s an ongoing project so today I’m only showing two sections. I couldn’t do more because the light was quickly fading and I prefer to keep the branch outside. I’ll show more photos as it progresses.

Do you like to doodle? If so, do you have a preferred style or surface to use?

Thanks for visiting!

A little sketching

Today, I was busy putting together some IKEA furniture for my studio so I decided to do some quick sketching for today’s art. I found a blank page in one of my art journals and sketched one of my cats, Diesel, sleeping on her scratch-post house. It’s far from being realistic and the proportions are off but for a 20 minutes exercise, it’s not bad.

Thanks for visiting! I’ll be back on Monday so have a nice weekend!

Weekend creations

The weekend was busy so I decided to do simple stuff for my art. A zentangle on Saturday. I hadn’t done a zentangle since my series of coasters in January so I was a bit rusty but it came out fine. 


On Sunday, i did a silly drawing in a book titled Complete This Drawing. My mother and I take turns drawing in it. On the left, you can see the design I chose which was obviously meant to be a squirrel’s tail but I turned it into a funky hairdo. We usually draw something other than what it’s supposed to be. 


And finally, today I did some more postcards. This time, I created collages on them. At the beginning of the year, I had the intention of sending letters and postcards to friends but never got around to doing it so I’m making various postcards to send out before the end of the year. 

These were fun to make so there might be more collages and/or postcards in the near future. 

Thank you for visiting and see you tomorrow!
