multiples, originally uploaded by poketypatch.

lots of boo boos. that is what I thought of when I was driving home thinking about the challenge for illustration friday. i am not a professional, just someone who doodles alot. after cleaning out the attic, i came across all of the colored pencils my kids have collected through the years. i started doodling. i went from feeling frazzled to a little more focused.

Race Car Driver

Race Car Driver, originally uploaded by poketypatch.

A race car driver for my nephew who is a "CARS" fan. I am putting together a little gift bag for him with the doll, some race cars and a bag to carry them in. I hope he enjoys it for Birthday #3!

cars bag I adapted a pattern from Wee Wonderful's Spaceboy pattern. It took me the better part of the day to go from start to finish, but I think it was worth it!

kitty, originally uploaded by poketypatch.
I have been working on a kitty softie pattern based upon a folk art cat that I obtained many years ago. I used my boys' old clothing to make up the body of the cat.
brown kitty
I am still working on getting body pieces to scale. In the red kitty below, I felt that the arms were too fat so I redid them for the brown kitty. I also wanted a more primitive version of a face on this one as well. I used old buttons (mismatched) for the eyes and a bit of an old recycled felted sweater for the nose.
The "warholized" version above is care of fd's flickr toys. I love seeing my kitty in different colors!
