A Drawing a day number 2!!

A drawing a day!!!

I am trying to post a drawing a day.  Each is done in pen and ink and kind, of free form.  I draw whatever comes in to my mind! Nothing earth shattering..they are just fun to do. This is called NOT A GOOD LOOK!

Drawing lesson

Today is a good day to learn to draw Harriet the dog!! Have fun!!

Events this weekend!

It is going to be a busy weekend. I will be at the Target Book Festival in Bloomington Minnesota.  I will be reading at 10:35 and signing after until 11:40.  Then I head down to a really fun book event at the Anderson Center in Redwing MInnesota. If you have never been down to the Anderson Center you are in for a treat!!    There are many authors and illustrators coming including two of my favorites Stephen Gammell and new author Chris Monroe who wrote my new favorite book MONKEY IN A TOOL BELT. The Red Balloon will be on hand to sell books.  I hope to see everyone there! For more information go to www.andersoncenter.org

Also, I will have a few pieces of art up for sale at the anderson center so keep your eyes peeled!

Drawing a monkey

Here is your first drawing lesson. Have fun!

In the next few weeks I will post drawing lessons and other fun stuff! I also get lots of questions about getting into writing and ilustrating a book.  First tip!!! Just do it ! Get started today! Take an hour or two each day to write and see what happens. If you hit a writers block just draw my monkey a few times then get back at it!!
