Wacky Wednesday -- A Rough Sketch

I have started creating some of my own clip art (See "Happy Labor Day" and "Calling for a Cease Fire".) An artist I am not, but imagine my husband's surprise when I showed him the initial rough sketch below. Finally, it dawned on me that I should explain I drew her arms and extra shoes separately because these are not my forte and if drawn separately I can edit and attach them later in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. Before the explanation I can only imagine what he must have thought.

Did you ever see/visit The Quiet Woman when you lived in OC? Take a good look at the logo and you'll see why she's quiet.

No, I didn't. But I took a look at the site and after seeing the wine selection, it looks like a place I should visit. Thanks!

Hopefully for your sake he didn't think to call the cops!

Seriously, your clip art is amazing. I can't even type neatly so other people's artistic prowess humbles me to no end.

And what can I say about your incredibly warm blogroll comment except "Thank you" and you truly, truly made my day!

Oh you are too kind. I just love to draw. Photoshop and Illustrator make it so much easier to turn it into something recognizable.

And the blogroll comment, that's just well deserved. So, as they say, "Write on!"

ps -- I do intend to add facial features. The marker I was using was just too chunky.

Great idea on making your own clip art! What fun. I love the picture without arms. I'm sure your husband wondered...
