First Persimmon

I had my very first persimmon last Thursday. It was magnificent. Ryan and I bought some from Costco on a whim because I couldn't find apples and I am really glad we picked it up.

Ryan made us drinks with a quarter of persimmon muddled lightly into an old fashioned with cinnamon sticks. So. Good. I felt very fancy.

Yesterday we traveled to Minnesota to go see part of our family for the holiday season. Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!

Can't Catch Me!

More Mary Blair inspired work. It's been really fun to mess around with the shapes she used. This drawing was made with olive green ink brush pen (Pentel Color Brush), brush, and black ink well (Black Cat). I like using the Indian ink because it's permanent and doesn't run easily. Something about painting with ink is very soothing too.

As of today I plan to post every Thursday! I have been attempting to spread myself over too many social medias and I just can't keep doing it every day so I am going to keep it consistent and post once a week. Look for my work on Thursday! (And if I ever post on other days as well, I hope you consider it a treat ♥ you all deserve it!)

Disney Animal Kingdoms Sketches

Some sketches at Disney Animal Kingdom I did from the Sunday before last.  It's been a long time since I have sketched from life! The only thing I was bummed about was I couldn't sketch the tiger - it was hiding the entire time. I think next time I need to go earlier in the day.

Ryan was also sketching with me! It was a lot of fun to be able to go out and sketch with people. If you are located in Orlando near Disney World, maybe we can meet up to draw & go on rides sometime!
