First Lady Michelle Obama, President Barack Obama

Can you guess...

Drew Barrymore? Not quite classic, but you know she's cute!

Maurice Sendak

As a Children's Librarian way back, I used and reused Max from the book "Where the Wild Things Are". (See him with the library card.)

My daughter Syndel

Enough about me!

Let me brag about my kid. She's the one on the right (though her bestfriend Julie is practically adopted).

Squirrels are so cute... their round eyes, bushy tail and the way they hold the nut as they chew away...

My Tucker is the best dog ever!

Happy Mother' Day!

Did these in 30 minutes! I think drawing animals is easier than humans. Oh, the raccoon reminds me of Wolverine...

Sophia Loren

This business of drawing who I think are classic beauties... hard! I had to re-do Sophia many times. This is the most I can do, folks. I think it sort of got her eyes, mouth, .... and hair! Definitely her hair!

Lynda Barry's grandma is a silly Filipina.

My inspiration. Stop and read every word of this comic strip. Dare you not to laugh. I sure have lots of funny life incidents that I hope to share in due time. So stay tuned!

Messy Rose

Just see the title. Someone needs to take a class on watercoloring and not use q-tips. But it was fun experimenting!

Okay. This is supposed to be Angelina Jolie. Her essence is there, but there's still something about it. I may just have to draw another image of her or maybe revisit this and "fix" it. For now, here is today's post.

I'm finding that "subtle" doesn't do well with the scanner. I had to re-do the outline and really pencil in the colors.

Marilyn Monroe

So, here's my very first posting. I plan to start with drawing women who I think are classic in their beauty. So #1 is Marilyn Monroe.
