A Bit Forgetful

I’m sorry, guys, I really don’t mean to forget about posting things on my blog! So many medias to put publish work on these days, what with Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram and my Website itself (simplykitts.com), I get a little distracted. Thank God I don’t have a twitter yet! Ugh…

Anyway, I’ve started a new project called “INKlings” in a cute little sketchbook (7 x 7 inches) to help promote a little bit of creativity in my every day life– which is quite hectic and, sadly, miserable at the moment. But this fun little project is geared to keep the juices flowing and have at least a little tiny piece of art daily. I’ve already missed a few days, but I’m working hard to keep it going, so I hope you’ll enjoy it along with me. I’m working to get in the practice of updating a daily image on my art Facebook and Tumblr, while here I’m going to do my very best to update once a week with all the strange, nonsensical things that were “arted” throughout the week! I’ll be doing one a day, at least (sometimes more?) and the goal is to use ink and brush only and keep the miniature illustrations to a sitting. No long, extravagant something, just quick, whimsical and fun curiosities.

SO! Here’s the first batch– I hope you’ll treat them kindly! ❤

A Wizardly Work in Progress

A Wizardly Work in Progress

And to revamp myself and get myself going on updating my blog– as well as to get my creative juices flowing, I’ve been working on a piece just for fun when I get the chance.

This is the work that fills my sketchbooks, even if it isn’t something (yet) that’s a sellable style, things like this are what I love! And since this is my blog, I figured… Why not? I don’t have to be professional all of the time.

Where’s the fun in that?

Something Super Neat!

A little over a year ago, I submitted to Doodler’s Anonymous for their Second Coloring Book “Competition”, and they chose my illustration as one of the 60 that made it in. I was super excited to think that kids could be coloring in my page eventually! At long last, they got the book squared away and I got mine in the mail, and it remains one of the highlights of my 2012 year. Thank you, Doodler’s Anonymous! Now it’s time to get coloring!
