October Weeping Angels

Weeping angels in two colors printed from original trading cards in color pencils.
I'm sending these to my Patreon subscribers and will list the rest on Etsy soon.


PS - I took a break from Inktober to go camping and now it's hard to get back in the flow. I'll pick it up again this week.

Had a little fun today drawing Captain America for a trading card.

I'm trying out a bit of a cartoon style for this and liking how it's turning out so far.

More superheroes to come and possibly a few TV characters. Cap had to be first off course.

I'll draw a few more and then watercolor all of them at once.

Jamie Fraser Jumping Jack

I'm doing these fun jumping jacks with my 6th graders at school so I thought I'd try one of my own...
This is Jamie Fraser from Outlander. Claire Fraser is next.
Here's the concept drawing so far. I think it's coming out pretty good. I'm going to test it out to make sure it works before getting into the coloring.

Throwback Thursday #3 Motorcycle Ride In Colorado

Throwback Thursday #3: On the Back of a BMW ride!

I went for a ride on the back of a BMW 650cc motorcycle this past weekend, something I had not done in a while. This got me thinking about the first ride we did together, which I happened to film some of it with a little Flip camera.

Here's part 1, on our way to the Rocky Mountain National Park on the Peak to Peak Highway. We stopped in Nederland for breakfast.

Bullet Journal 30 Day Challenge

Last Monday I started a 30 Day Challenge involving pull-ups, lunges and push-ups, or PLP. It started with 10 reps of each with 1 additional rep per day. At the end of the 30 day, I'll be doing 39 of each!!!
So off course I had to do a spread in the workout journal for it, and here it is.

Column 1: colored in when PLP are done.
Column 2: the time it takes me to do it.

Throwback Thursday #2: Fresh Powder

This was the first illustration I drew for the Outdoor Series. It wasn't a "series" at the time, I just happen to draw this one, liked it, played with it to create this poster style, then decided to draw a couple more.

The figure is black marker and color pencils. The background is done with watercolor.

This is the border for the Doctor Who themed 7k spread I posted a few days back.
I took out the drawing and left only the border and bulletins where various text and stats can be written.
This can be adapted to any running events to be documented, or, take off the "basically run" tag at the top and insert your own.
This template is available on the Patreon for $3+ patrons.

I finished coloring the virtual 7k page in the Bullet / Workout Journal this morning. Here it is with the medal. The uncolored template for this page is available through my Patreon.

 And since I'm on a Doctor Who kick lately, I drew the 11th doctor's sonic screwdriver last night. I still need to color in the copper pieces to finish these.

Bullet Journal Running Stats

In the process of coloring my Doctor Who Virtual Race - the Sonik 7K - in my bullet / workout journal. It's my first virtual race, so I ran in increments as you can see from the stats.
I miscalculated a bit and ended up running 8 km instead of 7! Good practice for the next one, right?!

The template for this is on my Patreon.
Great for the Doctor Who fan who happens to run. Can be adapted to any event or personal log really, just enter your own stats and use the bottom space for notes to remember.

Bullet Journal Virtual Doctor Who Race

I recently discovered virtual running clubs and decided to sign up for my first one. This one is a called "Sonik 7K" from the Whovian Running Club. Check out their website for more information.

Off course I had to come up with a fun way to document this in my bullet/workout journal... and this is it. I choose the 10th Doctor for this one.

Top left: panel to document STATS
Bottom left: Window for my bib, which I printed wallet size.
Bottom right: total running time for the 7K - just add numbers.

I run mine in segments on my personal trampoline after work, though I injured a big toe of all things last week and I'm having to wait a little.

This page will be re-done as Running Template for Patreon.

 Here's another shot with the wallet size bib to be glued in place later on.
