Quick Draw Collective

Final Quick Draw Collective Post

Here’s my illo for the last Quick Draw ever. (!!!!!!)  This image is about my personal growth as an artist thru QDC over the past 3 years (and how much joy it has brought me!).  I am so grateful for this collective and each and every artist that I’ve gotten to work with; I’m so lucky to have these guys as my friends.

Much love to all the QDC members and to everyone in ~*cyber space*~ who has followed along with us.  💛💛💛💛  THANK YOU!

Grieving and Technology

Death has been on my mind a lot lately.
Stephen and I recently watched Black Mirror on Netflix and we put off watching the one about the dead boyfriend robot because death is a touchy subject with me.  I'm already super emotional and I knew this episode was gonna suck. 
We did watch it eventually and it wasn't as sucky as I thought it was going to be....  but it did get me all moody about death and all my friends and family dying.  
Another thing that's happening in my life: my grandma has been asking me what I want when she dies & sometimes she just hugs me tight and says that she’ll miss me when she’s dead….
yeah. 

Black Mirror showed some cool pros and the ugly cons about staying in touch with the deceased through AI.  I think it would be kinda cool if we had some sort of hologram technology that pulled from social media / video files.  I feel like that would help me a lot in my grieving process.

The Future!

This month Quick Draw looked into the future and collaborated with the talented artists at Square Carousel! Allie Rotenberg and I teamed up with a sketch swap.

I’ve been a fan of Allie’s work since my children’s book professor shared her picture book, Ollie the Day Owl, with me ages ago!  I’ve always enjoyed her work, so I was thrilled we were paired for this challenge.  Thanks for lookin into the future and ~*mind melding*~ with me, Allie!  It’s been a blast 👾 

They Draw and Cook!

Last month our Quick Draw challenge was to create and upload a recipe to the popular illustration/food website "They Draw and Cook".  I chose to do a delicious adult drink for the holidays called "Starry Starry Cider":

This week Salli and Nate (the lovely couple who runs the website) decided to feature our submissions on their main jumbotron!
