This is my watercolor of a man in my art journal.
My art journal is purely for play and experimentation.
I think men are harder to draw then women so I wanted to see if I could draw a more manly looking man. For some reason, my men drawings always look too feminine.
He is my interpretation of a man that I saw in a magazine.
He's not perfect but really now is any man perfect? He's a start and he was fun to paint and he was just the ticket! I like the page marker over the side of his face for some reason I think it makes him look more funky and playful.

I had to do an art project for my online art group on hobbits, trolls or gnomes. I have decided to do the 3 Billy Goats Gruffs since that was my Son's favorite fairy tale and since I have my own goat. I can totally see goats being mean enough to take care of a mean old troll. The goat I have now is not mean. She is sweet and her name is Daisy and she is a buddy to my 2 horses. But I did once have a billy goat that was mean named Sinbad and he could have taken care of that troll for sure!
The art is digital art from my Printmaster program but I added touches of watercolors and sealed it with Royal coat to make it stronger so that it can stand up to having the story pulled in and out.

These are the two latest cards that I did this month. I always try to do a few birthday cards each month and try to come up with at least two new designs each month. The first card was inspired by a similar card in a magazine. Sorry but I cannot find the magazine right now. I'll post later when I find it.
The Hot Stuff card was inspired by a Two Peas In A Bucket designer, Kristina Werner. Her card is here:
