New Sketches




Here are a few little sketches from my sketchbook that I thought I would post. I especially love the dancing taco...I might do more with that later! Anyways, I still have to finish that new portfolio piece, but I've been working on other stuff! Hopefully by the end of the week.
Nancy Lefko gave me this award today...and it really couldn't have come at a better time. Today was the worst! I just felt so untalented and like no matter what I do, I'll never actually be a "real" illustrator. I had an "I suck" day. And, well, ...it sucked. But finding this made me feel better! Thanks Nancy! This is the text that comes with the award:

"This prize has arisen from the daily visits that I dedicate to many blogs which nourish me and enrich me with creativity. In them I see dedication, creativity, care, camaraderie, but mainly, ART, much art. I want to share this prize with all those bloggers who entertain and enrich me every day. Doubtlessly, there are many and it will be hard to pick just a few. The people I will name today deserve this prize, as do the very long list of bloggers I also enjoy to read. I will name the first four and will leave the rest of the work to all the bloggers who visit other's blogs and are nourished by them."

I'm passing it on to Mauricio Salmon...because I just really love going to his blog everyday and seeing if he's done any new drawings.

great sketches Candace....I have an award for you on my blog....always such fun to visit your blog.

I think we both received our awards on "that type of day." I had just watched 8 ebay auctions close without a single bid and of course that's because "I suck." Isn't it nice that when you feel like that, the art community comes to the rescue. And BTW....your work is OUTSTANDING...
