Painting a couch cat

I don’t paint very often, because I’m always clumsy and the paint gets everywhere. But today I felt like it and made this relaxed couch cat:

I haven’t been drawing a lot lately because I’ve been on a bikepacking vacation for a couple of weeks with my boyfriend (including some days spent chilling with my sister’s cat in a house by the beach šŸ˜Ž). But now I’m back with all my paper and pens and computer and stuff, ready to doodle and maybe paint some more. And hopefully be as relaxed as couch cat until I go back to work next week.

(I didn’t realise while painting this that the cat is either really big or the couch is really small šŸ˜‚)

Napping bag

I love it when summer is a bit chilly and windy (like in Denmark at the moment) so I can hang out outside in the shade in my sleeping bag.

We’re testing out our camping gear at the moment to prepare for a bike packing trip next week. So I need to REALLY check if my sleeping bag is good.

We spent two nights in our new tent in the garden, which was so fun that it almost made me want to stay home. But (luckily) we have family and friends to visit, so we have to pack up the tent and get going soon.

Blob dogs

These puppers are only now realising that they’re on summer break. And it’s a very blobby feeling! (Yes I’m on summer break from today and my brain is a blob).

You’re welcome to print out the blobby dogs and put them on your office door (or wherever you work) to let your colleagues know when you’re away for the summer. I put a less creative tiny note on my door today, since I hadn’t made these blobs yet. Maybe I’ll make a “back to work” or “Hello I’m back” version in August.

This blob dog was the first one I doodled:

It showed up in the middle of another drawing and inspired the making of the rest of the pups, so I decided to honour it with its own colours (which very much makes it look like a balloon animal).

Lots of pelicans

It started with a simple enough question: “Can you draw a pelican kind of in the same style as the bear?”

Me: Sure!

Eh, I’d better Google what a pelican actually looks like.

There!

Except, they probably live near the sea and not in small lakes…

So here it is on a rock in some water:

One of the things that came up in the google image search were flying pelicans with their legs tucked in. Which is now one of my favourite things to draw:

What was the question again?…

Duke Silver

I’m watching Parks and Recreation for the (just about) 10th time at the moment. It’s still such a great show, and it makes me appreciate working in an office! Even though there’s (a lot) less crazy stuff happening all the time where I work (luckily).

This is Ron Swanson’s face in Season 2, Episode 4 when Tom discovers Ron’s secret identity as Duke Silver, the smooth talking saxophone man:
