Drawing Challenge 2016 – Week 1

Week 1 of my drawing challenge is complete! These were drawn with a baby in one arm—multitasking at its finest.

1. draw your favorite childhood toy

I had an obsession with troll dolls as a kid. I had 20 or 30 of them, and I remember lining them all up around the perimeter of my bed, which in hindsight was pretty creepy.

2. draw a monster

I don’t even know on this one. Inventing a monster ended up being harder than I thought. I kept accidentally drawing cats or alligators dressed up like turtles.

    Oh my gosh, I can’t believe I forgot about troll dolls! Those were awesome to play with. The only thing that popped up when I saw this, was those vintage barbies they used to give in happy meals. I had the whole collection (that was a lot of happy meals). :) Your drawings rock. I’m beginner when it comes to drawing… if I show mine, they’ll make you giggle. Thanks for sharing! :) BTW, Love the challenge! Hugs- Cindy

      I forgot about happy meal toys! Remember the happy meal beanie babies? :)

    Ooh, troll dolls were a favorite of mine too! :) and it looks like you have that one armed drawing thing down, these turned out great :) Congrats on your little one! I can’t wait to hear details, if you decide to share them.

    Ooh, such a sneaky way to slip in the baby news! Congratulations. It’s a crazy big change that first baby. Hoping it’s going great and not too sleepless!

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
