Predator Disguise

A local squirrel, holding his ears flat to disguise himself as an open empty chestnut bur, totally fails, and the chestnuts safely scurry off...

A Color Picture of a Panda :D

Aren't I soooo funny, lol!
For this month's "Black and White" theme, I couldn't think of anything more black and white than a panda!

Black and White work

drum play at the irish pub
This is a sketch 'Irish drum player' I did at the Michigan Irish Pub in Conklin Michigan.
The Irish band on Wed. nites is worth the drive to hear.  No cover charge,
and I always bring my sketchbook.  The trick is to draw away while the band
plays.  So it is a bit of a art school throw back, got to draw the action, while it
happens.  Which is sort of the fun of it.  NO pencil under-drawing to work with,
just pen and paper.  (oh, and not touched up either, can you tell?!)

It's Black and White

Hello Scribblers!

This month's theme is:  "It's Black and White". How appropriate, as our Michigan world is about to be covered in a quilt of white snow! For me, this is the perfect time to get out the snowshoes and see the world in "black and white", a time when the trees stand out their starkest.

Get out your india ink or pull out your sketches, grab a mug of hot chocolate and watch the world transform into darks and lights. The deadline for posting art:  Feb. 28th.

Word of note:  Scribblers now has a link on the home page under, WHAT'S NEW!
Next month:  We will have a new challenge akin to one outlined in the Nov./Dec. SCBWI Bulletin from Anne Sibley O'Brien's, Think First article.

Any suggestions, comments or questions please contact me.

Happy Scribbling,
Lori Taylor
