Illustration Friday: Wool

Squirrel, watercolor, graphite & colored pencil on watercolor paper, 5 x 7", 2013.
 This little squirrel is wearing a nice wool scarf to keep warm. I'll be drawing lots and lots of squirrels pretty soon!

I recently downloaded the Vine app, and took a short video of my process:

Does anyone else have Vine? I'd love to see some great illustration profiles! I'm registered under my name, "Sarah Ryan".

Illustration Friday: Storm

Storm, micron pen, watercolor & gouache on watercolor paper, 7 x 9", 2013.
I should be working on something else, but I had an idea for this week's Illustration Friday. So, I did a super quick little drawing to get that idea down. Maybe sometime I'll do a bigger more finished version.

My Workspace

I recently signed up for ArtHouse Co-op's "Encyclopedia of Workspaces" They are collecting photos of work spaces from all over the world. I love to look at photos of work spaces... not the kind that would be in a magazine or decorating blog, but real, used work spaces.
I live in a house with five other people, so my workspace and bedroom share a room. The space might seem small to other people, but it works perfectly for me! 

The chart above is from Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon. I haven't really posted on my blog much lately, I feel like every project I've been working on has been stuck on "Dark Night of the Soul".  I figured this "Encyclopedia of Workspaces" project was great to participate in because it's simple to complete, and it would get me moving. There are a bunch of other really great, free Arthouse Co-op projects on If you are an artist, photographer, writer, or just looking for something to do, sign up for one!
