sea creatures

Good afternoon! Getting a bit of a late start this week...

Not to mention, it's Tuesday, nearly a week and a half after returning from vacation, and all I shared about the second road trip [to St. Petersburg, Florida] is a single cryptic photo! But there is a reason for this lapse. While in the Sunshine State I did not draw. I find that the beach has that effect on sketchbook productivity. To make matters worse, suntan oil is a terrible medium to work with! Bleeds right through one page into another...but, I digress....

While I wasn't setting the art world on fire [only my skin...ooooh, ouch], I was spending some quality time with an assorted cast of characters, several of whom took over drawing duties for me with this group portrait. Allow me to make introductions:
sea friends
Sketches by Squidgar, Long Jones Silver and Titantic Tim. And, as luck may have it, Titantic Tim also happens to be quite the talented photographer. So, in the words of Lavar Burton, Florida was amazing, but 'you don't have to take my word for it.' See the trip through Tim's lens here and here.

I love your sketched characters! I'm living a camp host at Morro Strand State Beach right now. Since it is not a vacation, I am able to be fairly productive. Checkout my two blogs: "Levonne's Pretty Pics" and "A Camp Host Housewife's meanderings" when you have a minute. I'd love your comments.
