Week 37 Animal Art Series: Wily Fox

In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I’ve been busy working on a new theme of drawings each week. At the end of the week, it’s nice to have lots of new drawings and a full page illustration. And I’m learning how to draw so many new things this year, which is really exciting!

My theme for September is backyard critters, so week 37 in my animal art series features the fox. They have a reputation for being wily; have a bushy tail; weigh up to 15 pounds; feed on insects rodents, rabbits, and fruits; and are usually active at night.

Postcard Series: Celebrate the Little Things

In between working on my weekly sketchbook pages of animal art illustrations, and trying to create something everyday, I’m also having fun practicing hand lettering combined with watercolor doodles, flowers and flourishes.
