Sketch Resting Fox
Today has been such a wonderful day at our Church Point Of Mercy in Madison, Tennessee. We had an amazing service and a wonderful Trunk Or Treat. Now our little fox Nicholas is resting, and I ran across a photo of another fox resting. Here is the sketch I did from that photo.
Writing Your Beginning
Nanowrimo begins tomorrow, the day when people across the world will begin to write their book. Some of us got started a few days ago, either way it’s a good season to start writing. I’m posting a little late tonight, but it the day was amazing. We have been at our Church today Point air Mercy, for service and for Trunk Or Treat, it was tremendous. I mention this, not only because it was a wonderful day, but because there was still time to write. There is time to tell your story. It may take longer than you expect, and that’s okay. Every story is different, but your story is…
iPainting Batman Louie The Lilac Milton Berle
I loved how the old Batman series brought such talented actors to the show. Among them was Milton Berle, the actor known for decades as Mr Television and Uncle Milty.
Sketch Inktober Risk
For today’s final Inktober sketch, the word is Risk, and immediately the old board game came to mind.
Writing Your New Chapter
Tell a story. The simplest truth of writing is that you are telling a story. Historical event, fairy tale, comedy, or mystery novel, they are all stories. It all boils down to how you tell a story. With Nanowrimo starting on Monday, I’d like to touch on some of the basics of storytelling. Some books are famous for their first lines, “Marley was dead to begin with”, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”. How you begin is important, at the writing stage it’s also changeable, so don’t stress, just think about how you want to begin. Who is the first person you want to…
iPainting Caesar Romero Joker
Though I’m a big Batman fan, I’m not a huge Joker fan, with the exception of Caesar Romero. The others were good, but my favorite is still the Classic Clown himself, mustache and all.
Sketch Inktober George
Today’s Inktober word is supposed to be slither, but I’m not a fan of snakes. I did learn that slither is a British term that can be used like sliver, the example was a slither of bacon. In keeping with all this, and my son’s love of George Pig from Peppa, I thought I’d include George here.
Writing The Crash
Today marks the anniversary of the stock market crash of 1929, which led to the Great Depression. It may sound like an odd beginning to a post on writing, until you consider one of the great American novels, The Grapes Of Wrath, was set during that time period. This novel is considered by some as John Steinbeck’s greatest literary work, and was required reading in school for decades. A writer’s words can take an event, no matter how serious or it’s scope, and make it communicable. Children who read the novel got to see how some thought during one of the most challenging things America had ever faced up to…
iPainting The Riddler Frank Gorshin
For all the ones who have played The Riddler, my favorite is still Frank Gorshin from the classic series.
Sketch Inktober Patches
Today’s Inktober word is technically Patch, but when your dog is named Patches, I think people will understand. This little dog has helped us through a lot of tears that turned to joy. Before we were able to adopt our son she would cuddle into us, now they’re inseparable.
