drawing: giant tortoise

March 6, 2022

I’ve been meaning to draw a Galapagos Turtle for a while. Here, the Giant Tortoise finds a lone berry tree. The tree is just big enough as a snack for this big turtle’s appetite.

My turtle is now competing in Snowboarding, with multiple clean 1080’s on the halfpipe!
Go for the Gold, turtle!

drawing: turtle curling

Who is enjoying the Olympics? I know my turtle is. Turtle is Curling for the GOLD medal!

When I go canoe/kayak fishing, I usually have a plan to start small and work my way to bigger fish. I couldn’t have planned it better myself because I catch Bluegill, a Crappie, a Channel Catfish, each being bigger than the last fish. And then end on a lunker of a Monster Bass. Happy Halloween everybody!

In this video, I feature my Largemouth Bass drawing. If you are interested to see more of my artwork, please check out My Shop.

As you may know, I do enjoy fishing. But did you know I like to draw too? When I went canoeing, Largemouth Bass have been elusive to me at the lakes. I only caught a handful this year. So today, I wanted to do a sketch of a lunker of a Bass. I’ve done a bunch of drawings of bass before, but this one I am happiest with because it has a big open mouth in action, and a big fat belly! What do you think?

It’s a lazy day at the cabin. The autumn leaves are starting to change here in the Upstate New York mountains. A bit too chilly to go paddling because of a cold front. So I am bonding with my cat, Mochi, and doing a little drawing of her. I have to say that it is nice to get back to my artwork.

Have a nice early fall day!

A friend of mine is going away to college, and I will miss her. She is smart, bubbly and full of energy. Loves to tell me drama stories about life. But best of all, her smile is infectious.

I do a drawing to bid her farewell. She is standing at the foot of the famous Arches, because she loves to travel and to hike too. My illustration symbolizes her free-spirited attitude and to wish good luck on her new adventures.

illustration: cicada

Where were you 17 years ago? Well, that is the last time the Brood X bugs were around, making ruckus in the trees. The Cicadas are here! Don’t be afraid. They may look creepy. One may smack you in the head by mistake, when flying clumsily, but they are harmless. They are simply out to look for a mate.

These red-eyed Cicadas are only in certain states on the East coast and the Midwest. So get out there and check them out because you’ll have to wait another 17 years to see them again.

Here’s a drawing I did of one critter, hanging out high in the canopy. Can you hear it buzzing away?

Happy Memorial Weekend all!

sketch: tennis ready

March 14, 2021

Spring is around the corner and there is more daylight, now that we spring forward our clocks! To me, that means, I can play tennis again (not to mention paddling and fishing too). Yay! The great outdoors is my gym, so I can finally get in shape again. In celebration, I do a drawing of a player that is ready to do a serve. If you’d like to see more of my drawings, please check out my store :)

What activities are you looking forward to do as the weather warms up? Let me know!

Happy Spring Everybody!

drawing: the kingfisher

February 22, 2021

While I was fishing the other day, a bird, perched over the water, caught my eye. At first, I thought it was a Blue Jay because, well, it was blue, and it had a crest on its head. But then, it made a nice subtle chirping. Blue Jays actually make a loud alarming sound. So I knew this bird was different.

I continued to fish. An hour or so later, I saw the bird again. This time, the bird had a Bluegill in its mouth. The bluegill was almost as big as the bird itself! I suddenly realized that this bird is a Kingfisher!

I’ve seen nature shows that featured kingfishers and how good they are at catching their food from the water. And here it is right before my eyes. In honor of the sighting, I just had to draw the cute little bugger (when I got home).

Sorry to get so excited but I always wanted to see this amazing little bird in person. Plus, I am a birder enthusiast AND I love fishing. Birds that are made for catching fish are a win-win in my book :)
