In a blatant and shameless bit of topic baiting, Tim Hamilton sent the word around this morning that today's topic was "Birdie the Cat". Blatant and shameless because Birdie is my cat.
My girlfriend and I adopted "Stray # 3" from the Seventh Ave Cat Clinic about two and a half years ago. We named her Birdie because of the trilling noises she makes, and because we thought it might be funny to name her after something she might like to eat. Like "Carrots" the rabbit, or "Birdseed" the parakeet, or "Steaming Load of its Own Feces" the dog. Birdie the Cat.
She's a funny little tabby, this Birdie, and I captured a few little doodles of her this morning as she stared out the window, wondering after her namesake, no doubt.
I wonder if she'd be flattered by all this attention. As a rule, the Bird doesn't seem to like anyone but my girlfriend and me, but I think she's been nice to Tim Hamilton on occasion when he's looked in on her when we're both out of town. Enough to make an impression, at least.

Thus, a monster
perhaps the highlight of tonight's Dare 2 Draw, wherein Riley Brown and George O'Connor gave aspiring arteeeests insight into the fine arts of characterization and improvisation, was Riley's declaration that Wolverine would never, ever wear a pink polo. and faster than you could say cerise, the entire drawbridge constituency began doodling to prove him very very wrong.

I'm calling this a Hookanekker, it's a nocturnal , burrowing, ambush predator. About the size of a pig. It is an enthusiastic predator so it tends to catch more than it can fit in it's stomach. It then stores any extra meat it's neck pouch for consumption later. This can be several days , so the smell of the Hookanekker is quite overpowering.
Thus, the Drawbridge theme today is, "Maurice Sendak."
I don’t have a copy of “Where the Wild Things Are,” so this
is off the top of my head from memories of said book:

Over at Whitechapel, they are doing another character re-design.
This one is from the 40′s and is called …ahem, SPURT HAMMOND.

Wonder Woman Day is a charity event celebrated in Fleming,
New Jersey and Portland, Oregon where money is raised to help
bring awareness to domestic violence and give support to
domestic violence shelters that provide critical help to those in need.
I did one piece already, but did this one too. Just because.

or buying my art. Or some other artists art for that

Here’s my Big Barda drawing. I always liked this character (hello, Si!)… I was tempted to draw her in her armor, but I also like that she’s often shown in her New Gods civvies. So here she is. Don’t mess with Barda.
I also posted up the pencils up at my own blog to help advertise the Women of Wonder charity event with a redirect here to see the finished version.
This version is done in colored pencils,12” x 9” (305mm x 228mm) but I might work this one up into line and digital color at some point.
