Snagged from so many....

1. Are you named after someone?

Named for the title character from the song I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen. I guess my granddad used to sing it. My middle name is the female version of my dad's first name.

The rest of it.... )

My Sisters and I


Listen I know it's been hard
It really breaks my heart
Someone's always coming around here, trailing some new kill

       What is this land America so many travel there
       And after the storm
       Tá na caoirigh ag ithe an gheamhair


There's something in the way she moves
Love I get so lost, sometimes
Amazing grace how sweet the sound

       Ah, for just one time I would take the Northwest Passage
       I'm a town in Carolina, I'm a detour on a ride
       Mama said there'll be days like this


If you see me walking down the street
If I could have all the world and all it owns
Guess I got what I deserve

       There is a young cowboy, he lives on the range
       The red sandstone, it fell
       Ubi caritas et amor, deus ibi est


Spare me your judgments and spare me your dreams

      Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky



Bonus points if you can pick out the songs. Some of them are pretty well known.

The next Drawlloween prompt was pumpkin. I thought I'd do a pumpkin coach but then thought that steampunk is all the rage. I probably have a gear in there I don't need. It's not an engineering marvel.

Punkin.... )

I am very new to trying to draw faces but I thought for this prompt, I'd give it a try. Here is Sam Winchester circa 5.20 as part wolf.

I'm still working on this challenge even though I'm a couple of weeks behind now. Day 4 is a vampire but I find drawing people to be really tough. Instead, I'm working on getting the hang of drawing objects so I didn't want to draw the vampire but wanted to stay with the prompt. My favorite vampires are the Black Dagger Brotherhood from the book series by JR Ward. I suppose they fall in the paranormal romance section. Now that I've been reading fan fiction for years, I'm realizing they should have come with dubcon and noncon warnings, amongst other things and like they say on tumblr, my favs are problematic. I don't care. My favorite Brothers are Vishous and Butch and at the beginning of the series, they are single guys sharing quarters referred to as The Pit. Butch was a human cop who ended up finding out about the Brotherhood through a case. He and the vampire, Vishous, bonded over a mutual love of the Red Sox and stay tight through the rest of the series. Yes, the slash is almost canon and I shipped them before I knew what that was. In their honor, I ended up drawing the things that would be left on a counter in The Pit. Grey Goose vodka is Vishous's drink of choice. I like how it turned out.

I'm a couple days behind so here is my day 3 goblin. At first, everything I drew looked like Shrek. I thought maybe there would be some sort of animal with goblin in it that I could draw instead. Do not google goblin shark unless you'd like nightmares. I came across Goblin State Park in Utah. Someone had posted a picture of one of the rock formations. The image looks like it might have come from Youtube if that is possible. Here is the link.

That leftmost rock of the three on the table looks like there is a possible critter there so I tried to draw that.



One other thing you should not google which I learned today the hard way is gnarly feet.

Here's yesterday's art. This started out as a serpent but ended up looking much more like a dragon. I wanted it to look like it was made of smoke but I'm still really just figuring out how to do any kind of drawing, especially on an ipad. This probably would have been fun to try with white chalk on black paper. I think I like drawing with pencil on paper most so far.
