doodles

I'm currently working on some illustrations for a children's book I wrote. I have an idea in my head what i want some of the characters to look like but i'm still experimenting- you'll see a few of them below. Since I haven't kept up with my drawing all these years I am quite rusty. Right now I'm just trying to get comfortable with drawing again. So far I've mostly just done doodles of faces but really need to learn how to draw the entire body. I have no training so I have alot to learn and improve on (like drawing the different facial expressions, gestures/movements). If anyone has any suggestions for books to reference please let me know. So far my reference and inspiration comes from watching lots of cartoons- specifically the mighty B! - best cartoon ever! Yeah so hopefully as I continue to post you will see an improvement on my drawing...fingers crossed. Also if anyone's interested in seeing some of my other work you can check it out at www.Jimondo.com



1st post

My name is Jenny and I am a graphic designer in NC. I started this blog as a way to share art and ideas. As an artist i should be drawing everyday, however that has not been the case- I'm hoping this will hold me more accountable. I can't promise I'll post something everyday but I will try to keep up to date as much as possible. Please feel free to share any ideas, comments and artwork.
