This next one goes along with another goal of mine, to study various artists who's work I am inspired by. I call this card "Dance; ala Keith Haring". I do my student teaching next fall and I need to start thinking about lesson plans. I figure learning about some artists is the best place to start. This one was done in marker on paper cut from security envelopes.

2 New ATCs - Fit 2008 Art Goals
I have made some goals for 2008. This includes, but not limited to: journaling more, using pen to draw more, posting to my blog each week, studying the works of great artists, and just drawing more in general, among some other things not listed here. Last night I made a couple of new artist trading cards while trying out some new techniques for me as well. This first one is a drawing of my rollball mouse I have on my laptop. I used a pitt pen for the drawing (which I did on a page from a book) and used marker to color it... several new things for me. I would love to get a printed book to journal in, but I have not yet found one suited for this project.
