Okay, so I mentioned that sewing isn’t my sole creative outlet. My other true love is drawing – and that has been calling to me lately. So I thought I would share my latest finished piece today. Presenting: KARATE GUY!

This won’t be a long post because there’s not a whole lot to say about it. I did it in graphite, and the finished size is 14×17”. I gave it to my karate teacher, Sam Justice, because his open admiration of my artwork in recent months has just made me so happy.

I love working in graphite, but recently I have returned to a medium I haven’t used in some years: Prismacolor (colored pencil). It’s challenging but I’m enjoying working with color again. We’ll see whether I can do anything I’m proud of with it!

Meanwhile, I’m spending a lot of time thinking about what I want to do next with needle and thread . . .
