Monster Parade Sketch

My trip to Rhode Island last week was wonderful. Little things, like going to lunch with my mother or researching Beatles lyrics for my best man speech with Ryan's aunt, were such a comfort. I enjoy our life in Seattle, but truly 'there's no place like home'. Preston and Kaela's wedding was so beautiful and just a blast. The 1920s Circus theme was pulled off without a hitch, and it was as fun and pretty as the theme promised. I'm going to devote a post to their wedding and our trip soon, I'm just waiting for all the photos to come in!

In the meantime I used my flight hours to sketch. I spent some time on a project that is going to hold my focus from now through June. I also drew these two sketches and I look forward to painting them in the next couple of days:

Little Red Riding Hood

Monster Parade
While I'm happy with the 'Little Red Riding Hood' sketch, I can't lie, I'm really excited to work on 'Monster Parade'. I'm going to set the background in summer with a lot of blues, greens, and browns. The Monsters themselves will probably be in grays, beiges, lavenders, and rosy tones. If you look in the center you can see one of my favorite monsters, Claus, holding a banner.

Hopefully by the end of the day I will have some progress on 'Monster Parade' to share. I'm about to dash to the store to pick up masking tape for the borders (we run out of tea, masking tape, and tabasco sauce often in this house).


  1. I'm glad your trip to RI was awesome. I'm leaving on Friday for a two week RI vacation, and I totally can't wait.

    I also have been seeing photos from Preston's wedding, and I can't wait to see more!

  2. Have a wonderful trip home! Preston's wedding was so beautiful, the photos have done it great justice so far!
