Pee Wee, A Pee Wee and Pee Wees

How's that for confusing?

So did you watch the new Pee Wee Herman movie last night? I did! Nothing will ever top the original, but I did delight in Joe Manganiello's contributions to the piece.

And I made myself do a five minute sketch of Pee Wee.

It was a short mental break from all the stitching I've been doing. I try to make myself do several of these quick sketches whenever I have a movie or show on. The idea is just to capture a sparse likeness, not to do a detailed and accurate portrait, although I think this sketch is a reflection of the contrasts that are Pee Wee, an eternal boy with physical traits that betray his mental age.

I also finished up this fountain pen sketch of my boy that was started in the car a few days ago while waiting for his sister to exit her school.

Awhile back my husband gifted me with the Zebra V-301 fountain pen, an inexpensive little oddity at the local drugstore. I fell in love with it and quickly drained the first ink cartridge. They are my new favorite pens to sketch with.

I still stick to Copic for my "real" illustrations. These three ladies were recently added to my ACEO stash, which I am committed to finally listing in my etsy shop, because I am constantly asked, "Why don't you sell your illustrations too?!"

Soon, you crazy diamonds. Soon.

Lastly, I'd just like to say, FYI, sneezing while oil pulling is a terribly stupid thing to do. I'd suggest you avoid it. At all costs.

Unless a nose full of germ infested coconut oil is your kinda thing.

Just ask me how I know.
