New Sketch: Kim Harrison
My girlfriend Nydia is doing me a solid so I can be lazy today. She's shopping in Key Food for me and making us a fabulous dinner so I can write and paint and not have to go back outside for anything (grin). We've been gal pals for a little over 19 years so she knows all of my creative quirks. I just got off musical lock down and now I have to paint because I have a gallery show to do next month. I see lots of jogs and canvas at Flushing Meadows Lake in my immediate artistic future (Yay! I love paint - LOL). ;-)
I actually doodle a lot to amuse myself while I think. It's like occupational therapy for the artistic soul hell bent on self-medicating (LOL).
Right now I'm trying to figure out how to draw a pixie with dragonfly wings. I've watched more Disney and bug movies than a 46 year old mom should regarding this particular subject (oh the things we do for reference material, eh? LOL). Normally, I'd just do a portrait and name it but this is Jenks and Jenks is a fabulous pixie.
Can't be slacking on the wee folks now can we? Nooooooo (LOL).
The sword is easy because I do Tai Chi and Northern 7 Star Praying Mantis so I actually own a few real, hand crafted swords. It's the clothes and wings that are driving me crazy. Do I stick Jenkie in Hugo Boss? He's a dapper little dude with a swanky sexy tailor for a wife who is always fussing about his silks (LOL).
If you haven't read one of Kim's Books you can click on the covers for excerpts (which is very cool). My gal pals and I are totally hooked and quite happily twitterpated. We are counting down the days until Kim's graphic novel comes out in July. I will probably have doodled a bunch of her characters by then and I'm working on a couple more right now (because it's fun - LOL).
By the way, the artwork in her graphic novel is fabulous!!! We get sneak peeks on her blog and business page so I know what I am talking about. How cool is that? Very! You should lurk there if you want to know more and possibly get freebies. :-D
Time to go because my grocery delivery is here (thank you, Nydia).
I shall be posting some more artistic mischief in the Kim-Stream later after dinner (and maybe possibly laundry duty - sigh - LOL).
Stay tuned for who knows what... That's because I sometimes don't know what I'm doing until I actually decide to do it (which is part of the fun of having cartoons living in your head - LOL). ;-)
