Branching Out by AtarAtis
Branching Out
Trying to get back into the habit of drawing (as I've been for a while) and journalling is the safest place to start... Tore some pictures from a magazine as to not have to start from a blanck page (I even cartoonifies some faces first, as a warming up) and then this slowly formed. Things trun into tress recently.. or sorta trees. Not sure why. Hope you enjoy nonetheless
Quiet Book for Dimas by AtarAtis
Quiet Book for Dimas
Inspiration hit... and I suddenly felt the urge to make a quiet book for my cousin Dimas.

Once upon a time I remember my mom made one for my brother. I had no memory of what was in there except for things that could be opened and closed. Having some ideas in my head though I started off, and while I went a long, as I tend to do, things became more interesting, I made up some stuff and it got slightly more complicated.

I learned a lot though! And again have to thank my mom for all the sewing background she instilled in me by letting me play with her scraps when I was younger, showing me how to do different stitches by hand and generally solving things creatively herself.

I forgot to take a picture of the last page; namely the family house witha family member behind each window. I hope I can still get a decent picture and will add it as soon as I have it.

For now I hope you all enjoy. 
I know the new owner does and that was surely the most important part!

As always, ideas, feedback and comments welcome!
Almost a Sharpie Guitar by AtarAtis
Almost a Sharpie Guitar
So one of my friends asked if I could draw on his -black- guitar. First I declined- thinking it would be cool but having no time and not much inspiration and it being a black guitar with a white marker...
But he insisted it didn't have to be the greatest piece of art I ever made and it was only a cheap guitar he wanted to travel with and that he would REALLY like me to draw something on there. 

I accepted... and boy did I hate the guitar for a while glaring at me from it's corner, demanding inspiration, demanding a plan of some sort. So I sketched a few crows (he wanted crows) and I looked at my doodles and eventually just started. 

I warn you all- white markers are a pain in the ...! I had some accidents, neatly covered up again by patterns (most of them), I had a big accident, making for a bit of a messy pattern on the top- but it was the only way to remedy the spatters of white that suddenly leaked out of the marker. And finally, after it being half done for a while, I decided it needed to be finished yesterday.

This is the result. He was quite content with his newly decorated guitar- I, being the artists that I am- like some parts of it, but definitely feel the need to do a couple more for practice! Possibly with a sharpie so detail becomes easier, and possibly on some very old guitars. Then again, maybe I should just do more art. What is that with growing up that art gets pushed in the corner?!

All comments and ideas welcome!

P.S.: for those of you who are interested: details in scraps:
