I am so excited to be included as a guest artist in the latest drawing book by Carla Sonheim! I taught a class called "Pencil Dreams" at Journalfest and was none to nervous to find out that Carla would be in my class. I had a chance to share some of my drawings during the class and Carla was nice enough to ask me to submit for her book.
I just received my copy and it is total eye candy and animal abandon. There is even photos of my 2 studio muses Max and Willow !
One of her requests was that we do one of her famous "sidewalk crack" drawings. This is my guy Wannabe:
If you look at the sidewalk crack in the book, I saw this shape when I turned it upside down!
I absolutely love her techniques for learning to draw creatively and recently used some of them to teach a kids drawing class for our local Grants Pass Museum of Art. The kids loved shouting out what animal they saw in my paint blobs!
Carla is doing a two-week blog celebration over at her blog: http://carlasonheim.wordpress.com/
where you can find new animal-related art tutorials, art giveaways, new assignments and other chances to win the book from September 23-October 6, 2012.
She is also giving away a signed copy to one lucky person from my blog. Just leave a comment below and I will pick a winner randomly on October 1st.
