Easter Egg Goodness

This was from Scholastic magazine Lets Find Out several years ago in their April issue. I like the little octopus the best.

The challenge was making them look appealing for 5 year olds and not creepy.

Dr. Sketchy's Drawing Group April

Everyone Draws Intently
Just went to another Dr. Sketchy's session last night. I needed to get out and do some loose sketching.I notice when I do more live drawing, it improves my drawing skills overall but I have been SO SWAMPED!

I want to go to the Cincy zoo for a day of sketching. I have a lot of animal illustrations coming up...
