I drew a tiger today. I love Walk the Wilderness blog. They always take beautiful pictures of animals. I saw this tiger just standing there, with it’s back to the camera. I really liked it, so I thought, I will draw that on my calendar. Now my drawing in not exactly like the picture, there was not enough room in my square on the calendar.
This is day 16 picture.
I went to the store today and bought some paint so I painted this one with paint.
Yesterday I drew this picture from a shampoo bottle. It is watermelon shampoo and it has this dog with some watermelon. I used color pencil, markers, and puff paint on this one.
This is the calendar so far. The 8th one, I painted over. I drew a picture and my son hated it. So I covered it over. When I first started the calendar drawings, I just scribbled the pictures on there. No I take it off the wall and do a better job. I am not going to draw a picture tomorrow. I already wrote on that space months ago.
I checked out this book at the library. Well actually it is a book on CD. It was a big box. The name of it is Brisingr. It is about this dragon and a rider in some world. I read the first book Eragon, by Christopher Paolini, years ago. That is a really good book. I bought the second book, Eldest, but I have not read it. The third book is Brisingr. I saw it at the library and thought I would like to listen to it. I brought it home and saw it was 23 cd discs long. I put in the first one and just did not want to sit and listen to it. I think I like reading them myself, with my own voice in my head. I did not listen to anymore of the CD’s. I took them back. I think I will read the second book and then read the 3rd one later.
So yesterday I drew the picture of the dragon that was on the cover of the cd’s.
Today I drew Wonder Woman.
The other day I watched this game show. One of the questions was Who used the lasso of truth? These people were supposed to pick from 4 answers and place money on it to win. The question was “What superhero has not had a movie made of them in the last 10 years. The other 3 questions, the people knew. The lasso of truth, they did not know. I am sitting there yelling at the TV, “It was Wonder Woman.” They put their money on that question, even though they didn’t know who it was. The answer was right, it was Wonder Woman.
Then my son got this gamer magazine in the mail yesterday. I opened it up to look at it and they had this big picture drawn of Wonder Woman. This is the second time in two days that I heard or saw Wonder Woman. So I went to my calendar and drew Wonder Woman, or my version of her in the day 13 box.
I like to sketch. Sometimes I paint pictures. The new year rolled around and I bought this big desk calendar at Dollar Tree for 25¢. I don’t know how they can sell it for that little. The paper cost more than that.
I used to draw things on my son’s calendar. I used to make a new pumpkin drawing in October for each day of the month. I even made a video of each one. I don’t have the video on Youtube anymore. I found them on a backup dvd. I will try to put them all together and put them on Vimeo.
Anyway….I put up the new big calendar and my son said he wants me to draw him a picture each day on the new calendar. He got the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, he loves to read those, so I draw the people on the calendar like the Wimpy Kid book figures.
Today I tried to wake him up for school. He covered his head with a pillow to try to not hear me. He didn’t want to get out of bed. So the picture for the day was him, in bed, pillow over his head.
Yesterday was a picture of a school bus because he went back to school after a long Christmas break. Day one was him playing his Wii computer games all day long. (click picture to see better.)
I told him today that I am not going to draw anymore pictures.
“Nooooooo, I like them.” I will keep it up, but I don’t know for how long though. I might get bored with it.
