I had a fun weekend making lots of art. I cut paper, I sketched on the paper and I cut the paper some more! I made seven pictures in all and will be posting five of them this week. You can stay tuned on DeviantArt or Flickr.

There was no way I was going to draw this design by myself, so I fired up Rhino and whipped it up in half an hour last night, which is amazing for all that stomached my bellyaching while learning it a few years ago. I think it's interesting that art helped me understand math concepts a lot better. For all the triangles in this pattern, all I see are squares. Rotating the outside triangles was difficult because I didn't have a protractor handy, but once I got some squares going it was all good! The smaller triangles on the inside of the circle have a small mistake - I forgot to change the tolerance on the grid snaps and it's slightly off. I'll go back and fix it another night.

I volunteered for a month in a MLP fan calendar being organized in the MLP Arena. It's available for $5 physical or as a PDF (not sure if the price is the same...rosierjay is organizing it). I just had to have October because it's my birth month, but I figured I also had to do a Halloween theme. Here Blossom, Twinkles the Cat and Brandy the Dog head on to a party at the Show Stable. Blossom is wearing the Best in the West pony wear package :-) 8.5x11" and made out of layers of paper, marker and PanPastel. I am always a little embarrassed by fan art, but was SUPER FUN to make :-)

This has been in the works for a long time for a friend of mine. It felt so good to get it done!

I have to fix up a better photo of this for DA. Paper, PanPastel and a whole lot of adhesive!

I mailed this off for a mail art exhibition today. An art movement called Papergirl Calgary is exchanging art with Papergirl Bristol. Apparently it has been advertised since April, but I only found out about it last  week. There will be another one as I accidentally cut the background off :D

Hey peeps, just wanted to share a 5x7" papercut that I made for an online friend. I think it's my best to date...and definitely one of my favourites too! I draw the picture on the back in reverse and cut out a silhouette.

Another picture down for the comic expo...although now I see I have to touch up the top part. I just bought a refill for my YROOOO marker, and that's where I exhausted it after trying to revive it with plain alcohol.

I could spend hours more on this picture, but I won't!

I am still working on these, but cutting back to work on my Christmas horse picture for 2014.

I decided that the picture I did this weekend needed a lot of touching up, so hopefully I can get on that this week. But since I would not want to disappoint anyone, here is a future pony. Her back card stoey describes her as a ballerina in the sky. Dressage is horse ballet, so a little Googling and I found a pose I liked.

I really wanted Moondancer as a kid, but I never had one. I came across one as an adult and didn't buy her :-D

I think I will go back and photograph this drawing. Scanning PanPastel can be very difficult. Some suggest putting a transparency between the picture and the scanner, too.
