Walking Stick

I recently discovered the imaginative art of Stefan G Bucher.

Stefan drew a daily monster for years. If you’d like to see some of his art, he has a couple of YouTube videos. Google his name to find them. His art is also on Instagram.

His method of creating monsters with ink and a compressed can of air inspired my Walking Stick:

Did you know that Walking Stick insects are also known as stick insects, stick bugs or bug sticks?

My insect is a little on the strange side but that makes it all the more interesting to me!

Happy Creating!

Cheers! 🙂

Whoa! Who Turned Up The Freezer?

Yesterday, it was unusually cold in the Pacific Northwest where I live…19 degrees Fahrenheit! Brrr!

It inspired me to create this silly weird bird drawing in my sketchbook:

I added color with Tombow and Copic markers:

Whoa! Who turned up the freezer? I sure wish Mother Nature would turn up the thermostat!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Spectacles

Today’s weird bird is wearing spectacular spectacles…

I hope you have a spectacular day!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Happy New Year!

Santa Claws…

The gifts are all wrapped

And under the tree,

We’re hoping Santa Claws

Let’s each of them be…

The twitch of his tail

And gleam in his eyes,

Means he’s been in the catnip,

This is no surprise!

His message to you,

This Christmas Eve night…

Never leave a catniped “Claws”

Out of your sight!

Meowy Christmas my friends!

May your day be filled with happy surprises!

Cheers! 🙂

Ugly Christmas Sweaters?

Perhaps these weird birds have been dipping their beaks a little too much into the egg nog…

Do you like their ugly Christmas sweaters?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

P.S. I found a way to repurpose a few of those old Christmas cards… 😉

A Tintinnabulum

Today’s weird bird has a ring to it…

Tintinnabulum – (N) a small, tinkling bell or set of bells playing in succession.

This bird gives new meaning to a “wingding!” Lol!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Pie Birds

‘Tis the season for…

PIE!!

These three Pie Birds are a slice of happiness, don’t you agree?!

What is YOUR favorite kind of pie?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A “Bug” In My Bonnet

I enjoyed my blogging break for the last two weeks… Although I couldn’t stay away from reading so many of your creative blogs! 😃

I am looking forward to a new month… December is here! And Christmas is just around the corner… Hoorah!

Someone put a “bug” in my bonnet in the last couple of weeks and I have been drawing these bugs from my imagination:

I started with their imaginary “hats” from my Gelli-printed papers or copies of my own artwork.

I drew my imaginary bug in pencil before adding permanent pen.

There is something wonderful about creating from your imagination. It is so freeing!

Lastly, I added color pencils to give these bugs a little pizzazz…

Which bug(s) do you like?

Cheers! 🙂

Snuggle Bug

I like making AND receiving handmade cards…

How about YOU?!

I made this card for my husband’s birthday recently:

The holidays are not always easy…

Snuggle someone you love today, even if they bug you a little!

Happy Wednesday AND Thanksgiving to those who celebrate!

Cheers! 🙂
