Bug bites at 2:30am
Any artist knows the feeling a sudden and compulsive need to create. Well, that creative bug bit me last night around 2:30 am. I was already awake and I just absolutely without a doubt had to make some art. So, I got out my gouache (which I haven't used since college), pens and colored pencils to create the image I'm posting here. You may recognize this character from my past 2 days of blogs. I really like her and she's very fun to draw. I've decided to name her Molly.
I had this scrap piece of narrow cardboard laying around so I thought up something fun that would fit the size and shape of it. I was very leisurely in my creation of this little piece. I worked on it until around 4am. After I scanned it I was still feeling the bug. The impulse to draw and paint was insatiable last night. But my body disagreed and at about 4:30am I turned in for the night.
So, here's the new Molly. I hope you like it!
