before

As I mentioned last week, I've been sketching quite a bit the past few days. Perhaps it is this extra exercising that explains why I committed to completing this marathon 5K of drawing yesterday. Typically I have no patience...which is why most of my sketches take no longer than 30 minutes. Yesterday I took two and a half hours on this one, which qualifies it as a biggie in my book.

a mess!

So, to explain: a year ago this week Edgar and I moved into our dream house...not Barbie's dream house, mind you, but our dream house. And, sadly, for that entire year, while we've worked on every other space in the house, our guest bedroom has been a disaster...a DISASTER.

That all changed this weekend, when Edgar and I emptied the contents of the bedroom into my studio, which is now the DISASTER. However, I am hopeful that things will get back to being organized soon, at which point I'll post 'after' images, and let the OCD sufferer inside me sleep.

Didn't know Edgar took on a sudden case of the elephantiasis :-)

Absolutely incredible sketch...all the delicious details, lovingly rendered! Of course, I'll admit, if I saw that room IRL, I'd cringe. ;D
