Drawing A Day #174: That hits the spot

June 23rd, 2011

In today’s D.A.D., That hits the spot, looks like someone is going to learn how to play nice the hard way!

That hits the spot

Speaking of play, with the warmer summer weather finally here, hope everyone’s getting the chance to get out and enjoy it!

We were also lucky enough to have our Raining cats and dogs mentioned in junquete’s etsy treasury, An ode to the weather we’ve been getting – thanks for including us!

Drawing A Day #173: Hillbilly

June 21st, 2011

The recent Dukes of Hazzard movie was on TV the other night and while I only caught a clip of it, there was obviously some lasting impression on me as I bring you Hillbilly:


On hindsight, I should have outfitted this guy with a pair of overalls and bandanna  … or had him cruising around in The General Lee… 

And our Black keys drawing was recently featured in the etsy treasury, Just My Slant On It, curated by ShopMichL (thank you for including us!):

Connie is the second member from the etsy group, T.E.S.T., to make a donation to The D.A.D. Project (yay, team!) and we are more than grateful for this thoughtful gesture. She is behind Twine Birds, a small but growing handmade polymer clay jewelry and accessories business focusing on miniature foods and other attractive objects. Having been crafting from a young age as well as studying visual arts and environmental studies in university, Connie is very comfortable crafting clay items from her home in the GTA area.

Taking up this medium in 2008 to fulfill her need to work with clay, Connie has been creating small miniatures and participating in craft shows and events. Taking the time between graduation and fall, when she goes back to university to study Urban Planning, Connie aims to spend the summer working on new designs, going to more craft shows as well as volunteering.
