Rainy Day and Rainbows

Today's is raining cats and dogs! But one great thing I love about rainy days is that its perfect to sleep in and perfect to stay at home and create! Today has been no exception I have a lot of sketches that I need to scan and finish in photoshop. I notice how my style has become more defined. I used more color and made it more bold like the one above. I normally don't like to use so many colors in one sketch but I love how it really focused on what I wanted the art to be about.
The above piece of art is exactly how I feel when ideas all of sudden pop into my head. That somewhere out of the sky when I least expect it light bulb ideas parachute out right into my brain and get those creative juices going. And with me like the rain outside when it rains it pours so tons and tons of ideas are just bombarding me. Never constant and blows me away like a hurricane. After wards I'm left with the beautiful rainbow outcomes of the torrent of ideas that comes and goes. I smile... that's also a nice thing about rain... =) it gets me creative ... how do you get your creative juices flowing ?

Awwww, both prints are super cute!! I have to say that the ideas one is somehow even cuter than the rainbow one, and I love rainbows!

Those are so cute! I love them. Sometimes when I am laying in bed, just before I fall asleep, creative thoughts come to me. Then I end up not being able to sleep as I tend to keep thinking about them and expanding on the ideas.

I think your art has really evolved during the time I've "known" you. I like the direction it's going and always love to see your new works!

Love reading about your processes! That was some crazy rain... and I went out and walked around in it for 2 hours at least. By the time I was headed home, the rain stopped and the sun broke through a crack in the clouds, and it shone SO brightly on the streets that they looked platinum! And all the wet trees, bare, and illuminated, looked like they were covered in ice. It was a dream I was walking through. Now I am home and (day off from the other job!) full of inspiration myself for new artworks, too!
