Art in the Raw

Inspired by some new Christmas gifts I'm making an effort to nurture my relationship with art. I started with a new pen and ink set and a scrap piece of paper. I did a quick drawing of my old friend, Spiderman, from memory. He has a few quirks and strange anatomical mishaps, but it was fun to draw him again. He used to be my character of choice in high school and college.

 And my next endeavor will be a revisit to a favorite medium, watercolor.
 And with a little creative fuel, I might muster up something for the walls...or next year Christmas gifts! Thanks, Amanda, for the French press! It's a lot harder to be satisfied with the office's coffee now.

I was almost afraid to try it again because it's been so long.

I wonder if I can still do switch-leaps....

How fun is that?! I like the photography,too -- the angle on the second shot of spidey. Would there ever be an opportunity for some drawing in one of the publications at work? That would be so cool . . . and I'm pretty sure what they've been serving at work lately isn't really coffee at all.
