Online Drawing Collaboration #8

Inspiration

“Woof!” | JPF and Anna M

Today’s session was not recorded on video. Sorry about that. The full picture can be seen below.

We started by familiarising ourselves with Aggie.io, the online drawing tool thingy.

We made a few marks, most of which subsequently got hidden or deleted. And we settled on courage as our theme.

My dog Peanut inspired us to start. We created the wolf as a scary counterpoint, and devised a short dialogue.

Anna suggested that the wolf might even eat the sun itself, which greatly ramped up the scariness.

Quite a bit of mark-making got erased or undone, until towards the end, when the ticking of the clock required us to make marks and add colourful decorative elements in haste, without worrying if they were “good” or not.

We finished on time (of course).

Thank you Anna M.

Dog portraits

Inspiration

Do you like dogs? This may be of interest.

Last year, a friend let us have her dog while she went away, and I drew Boogie’s portrait.

Then I started drawing portraits on Zoom to raise money for Soho’s Homeless during the lockdown. One man asked me to draw his daughters, separately, each with two dogs.

It was quite a challenge doing this on Zoom, not least because dogs don’t sit still. But I enjoyed it:
