I’ve sadly been only keeping up with August Break halfheartedly. I’ve got some pretty time consuming projects happening right now. Orders in my shop have been steady so I’ve been drawing a lot. I got a whole lot of custom couple portraits all at once and have been having a blast getting the faces right. These two are the ones I’ve been working on this week. Both show my very first pencil sketch and both will be refined and reworked a bit before I ink them. I have one more couple to do this weekend and three dogs!

I have also been working on some shrinky dink cat magnets again.

I decided to send out a prompt at work and offer a free magnet for any lovely cat owner than wanted one. I guess I like to create creative challenges for myself to spark the motivation or, in this case, to start a fire under my ass. While I certainly do have enough drawing work to do, I’ve wanted to see if I could actually produce en masse.

After a day, I had over 45 requests, which meant I got over 45 photographs of funny, adorable, loved cats. I also had to create some organization to get it all right. Each magnet will have a unique drawn portrait of the cat plus the cat’s name. That’s a lot of names to get right! I started this weekend, and I’m about 11 cats in. I hope to get the whole project done over the next two weeks. I’ll be sharing each pretty feline on here with his/her magnet over the next few weeks.
