I am back in the classroom and my own kids are back in school so I am immensely, overwhelmingly, exhaustingly busy. However, I am working hard at carving out time for art as a way to decompress and balance things out. I am currently beavering away through Drawlloween, the annual daily drawing challenge, and sharing my illustrations on my other blog. By some miracle, I found myself with extra time to draw this past weekend so – what with my creative brain being fried from the daily drawing – I thought I would have a crack at a Draw This In Your Style challenge. I selected a vampire created by Heather Mahler because it’s still spooky season. I have done two of her previous DTIYS challenges because her subject matter appeals to me, I like her colour choices and the way she utilises symmetry and asymmetry while her style and medium are very different from my own. I really enjoyed creating this drawing. It all came together with ease so was very relaxing to work on.
I love her tattoos!! And I’m glad you’re taking time for some just fun art too despite being so busy! I find it restorative when I’m able to do it. I wish you every good thing!! ❤❤❤
Last week was exhausting. I had to give into the crash as survival rather than just self-care. But I can never be idle, even when being as lazy as possible, so I made time for extra art.
I hear you!!! Art is a great survival strategy!!! I hope this week will be better for you.
I like what you did more, looks fantastic. What a great idea.
Thank you, Leanne. I am pleased with how this one turned out.
I like yours better! Great expression.
Thank you very much, Anabel!
