Day 203 – My 2yr old loves to “write,” so I often find scribbled scraps of paper around the house. Every once in awhile something catches my eye and I stop to look at the scribbles more carefully. This time I sketched over her lines until a new image appeared. I saw a cat-like creature. He was awoken by a pesty fly buzzing around his head, and got tangled in the cord of the lamp he was napping under. Ahh scribbles. So much possibility. (Taken with Instagram)

Day 246 – Beginning a triptych pencil drawing as a way to start the creative process for a commissioned installation involving three doors. (Taken with Instagram)

Day 247 – I plan to create plush toys from both these drawings. I sketched the red one from the book, “Ella Sarah Gets Dressed.” It will be super soft and floppy. The brown one was drawn by my daughter when she was 6 yrs old. I love the ears, expression, and proportions. (Taken with Instagram)

Day 214 – Sketching games with my 8 yr old. Random accidents. We draw blind, then look at the scribbles and see something new. We crumple paper and find figures in the wrinkles. I hold the pencil while she moves the paper underneath to try to draw something. (Taken with Instagram)

Day 221 – The faint beginnings of another sketch for a page in the children’s book. I’ve started over at least 3 times because I keep changing my mind about the type of landscape. And the little girl’s reclining position is a challenge for me. (Taken with Instagram)

Day 231 – I’m sketching a few quick alternative ideas for a page in the children’s book. (Taken with Instagram)
