Sketchy LXVI

…more patterny thing….

….aaannnd…now we’re all caught up with the sketch book….

… I’ll post more as I finish a double spread page….

…tomorrow I’ll start the paintbook catch up….

Sketchy LXV

….went back thru the sketch book and dug out some patterns I was playing with a few years back….

…the tentacle “motif” is a more contemporary addition….

Sketchy XXXXIII

…(imagine a happy, pleased-with-ones-self, humming sound)…

…(you can stop imagining the humming sound now)….

…(swapped the toothy maw of contemporary octo-drawings for a less bitey, querulous o-shaped mouth….resume the humming sound)….

Sketchy XXXXII

….time for a new pattern…

…a return to the tentacles…

…starts out “conceptual”….

…but firms up by the end of the second page…

…(even though I described this as a new pattern it was drawn 10 months ago and has been advanced to paintbook, expanded upon and now that I’m back on nightshift has made further appearances in sketchbook)….

…(good god…can anyone follow that?…I can’t!)…
