A Cuddly March
For the most part of March I've been focusing on traditional media and drawing a lot. Its actually great to take a break from the computer once in a while. Using traditional media helps me focus better on building basic skill in painting.
So I've worked a lot on my cuddly series by doing a lot of sketching and some finished illustrations. The cuddlies started coming alive in my drawing many years ago. I don't know where they came from...I guess its all about a feeling. When I think about them today its all about caring, empathy, love, joyfulness and sometimes having a little adventure in every day life.
I just found an illustration where the cuddly figure first made an appearance. Its all the way from 1999 and done in watercolors. What do you think?
This is from when I thought I should be something else than an artist and only did this as a hobby on a rare occasion. Now times have changed fortunately....YEY to that!
Its been a joy getting reacquainted with my cuddlies the past weeks and contemplating a little bit of my emotional journey in my artwork.
Here are some of my most recent cuddlies made this month....they have changed a bit in 18 years don't you think? :)
I hope you enjoy these little guys, I believe they are my favorite characters :)
Thank you for looking in!
