One of my kids had to draw a monster for her english homework. And because she can, she used my black-ink and watercolor supplies :-)


here is her description of schleimi (which was the second part of her homework):

This is Schleimi. She is a mixture of a slug and a bird. Her body is darkpink. The wings of her are darkblue. She has twenty black spots. My monster can´t fly. She is as fast as a normal slug. And she is taller than a slug or a bird. Schleimis favourite food is plants and vegetables. She is twenty years old. She loves playing ballgames with her sisters.

I've been in Paris a few days ago and this is one of the sketches I made. I sketched using a pencil and ink and later completed it with watercolor.

I dreamt about this flower a lot of times lately and in my dreams I spent countless hours of drawing it. I finally managed to do it in real life too - hopefully the dreams stop now ...

I´ve been drawing again yesterday. The image started as a quick pencil doodle and evolved more and more into this bot. I colored the bot using copic markers. For the background I used watercolors
