“A Legend Awakens” in the Tengwar script written using a Fraktur black-letter calligraphic style, by Geek. A snow day project.
I was playing with three-point perspective (see Wikipedia), and decided to make this quick test piece of a city of towers, and post it here for people to see. Enjoy!
Just a quick sketch I did on the back of a care package we sent to Geek at camp. Really tough to draw with ballpoint pen on one of these bubble pack envelopes (and a re-used one at that!). Yah, I should have thought of this before I was sitting in the post office parking lot with only a ball point pen handy.
It’s supposed to be some kind of fantasy bad guy in light armor. Spikes on gauntlets and toes of boots, war ax with hammer on backside. you get the idea. Rough with no pre sketch with pencil etc, and it shows. ah well, likely to make him smile and that’s what matters 🙂
Drawing Geek sketched for a birthday card recently:
A forever flower, or in hawaii pidgin, “fo’ eva flower” (or something like that).
First color drawing in decades, clearly some skill to (re)acquire..
Graphite pencil for the rough shape, then Berol Prismacolor Colored Pencil 48 Color Set to finish it out. I tried some Faber-Castell Color Pencils “POLYCHROMOS” but I only have a set of 36 colors and it just didn’t have the right colors for an Iris while the 48 pencil set did. There is a nice Prismacolor Pencil – Thick Lead 96 Piece Set that I might upgrade to sometime, but they aren’t inexpensive….. (!)

Here are some from Geek’s daily drawing notebook.
First, two inspired by our visit to the Escher exhibit at the art museum:
And a picture of the crayfish Geek caught and ate with help from his cousin on a recent visit to WV:
Some pictures from Dad’s daily drawings:
First, Dad of Dad suggested that the left side wall corner didn’t “read” right in my old house picture. Basically, he called me on not finishing the drawing properly (I had spent enough time on it and wanted to move on and so I stopped when I knew it wasn’t really “done” – busted!). So here’s what it looks like after I “fixed” that problem (though I still didn’t spend as much more time on it as I ideally would):
Here are a couple more sketches:
Couple of the better daily drawings for the week from Dad’s Daily Drawing sketch book…
