the hat, robot and a pumpkin

Straw hat

Robot action figure that's
kind of like an insect
Drawing random objects is always fun and keeps life interesting. Animals move around and it can be a challenge to draw them unless they are sleeping.  Action figures are cool and are great to turn to as an alternative to plastic vegetables and flowers.

curved plastic gourd/pepper? Reminds
me of a penguin

charcoal and then some...

robot drawing from sketchbook
After a while, plastic fruits and vegetables get boring to draw. Sometimes, they're too predictable. Action figures are fun and I've enjoyed drawing some using a 2B pencil. 

These little robots can lead to hours of drawing them in different poses.

Not sure yet, where these series of drawings will go....

Outside with a book

Recently, I helped illustrate a book which will be available in June.  Working on this project took several months to complete....Art provides an escape and a creative outlet away from chronic pain issues at times.

A Question Mark around the pencil

Not sure what to draw these days. I haven't had much energy due to the weather and dealing with my chronic illness. When I do have the energy, I seem to be once again gravitating towards the plastic fruit and vegetables, specifically the pumpkins. There's some thing about the shape, color and texture that I find fascinating. Also, when I draw them, they sometimes come out crooked and out of proportion.

I did go through a phase where I was drawing action figure robots.  I may resume drawing them, as they seem to fascinate me like the plastic vegetables do.
