Wedding Chic

I went to a wedding tonight and, unlike 99.97% of my days, I looked pretty slammin’. It was by complete accident but it felt nice. And it also felt nice to be out on a Saturday night sans child. I know, “BLASPHEMY!!!!” It may be a publicly unpopular notion but it’s most definitely a common one: Sometimes it’s fun to do things *without* your kid. Call CPS.

Anyway, as I was out having fun and eating all the pie, I realized I’d unlocked the secrets to seeming fabulous. I decided to draw them right quick. Because that’s what I do.

Portrait: Slinging BB

I adore the reference photo that I used for this piece. The Girl tolerates slinging for only twenty-minute chunks max, and when we do sling it’s the sweetest, coziest thing. (She does enjoy being cozy, just like her mom. She also gets real pissed off in the heat… Just like her mom.)

At the moment, she’s luxuriating in her morning nap. It’s rather thoughtful of her to give me a window of time during my “creative hours” to work on projects and ponder the existence of the universe. The rest of the day will be spent examining mom’s face, attempting to get that pesky foot in her mouth, and contemplating whether she really is ready to roll.

Morning Doodle – 6/29/18

I’m calling this one “Target Practice” because drawing a baby who is not asleep is like trying to pin the tail on a moving donkey. While blindfolded. And drunk.

Also, it feels good to play without too much concern for the end result. Helps lube up those sticky neural channels.
