Rough sketch of Mama feeding Baby

 

I've had a difficult time adjusting to drawing directly on to my tablet.  The feel is different from paper, and there is a slight offset and lag between the stylus and the cursor.  Last week I got the It3 Anti Glare screen protector and that has helped immensely to provide a more papery feel.   Now I'm working on doing an illustration from start to finish on my tablet.  The final inked version will be posted this week!

Note: The "Good Job" in the top left is a note of encouragement from my Dear Husband.  Sweet guy that he is 🙂

How I will miss this view, but Oh The joy of a stable internet connection!  Hello World!

 

 

My Grandma passed away this weekend.  It wasn't unexpected, and after a long battle with dementia, I was happy to see her at peace.  She leaves me with many wonderful memories, but this one kept coming to mind lately.

Sneak preview

A little preview of the next comic that I've been working on. Doesn't it look serene? Looks can be deceiving 😉 it's humorous that it's 2:30 am and I'm posting a drawing of my sleeping baby while my actual baby is currently wide awake and looking to play...

Nothing gets our family grooving in the kitchen like the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack.  I hope this first post finds you happy too, my friends.
