Drawing Inspiration: Colored Pencil Progress

I've been admiring some lovely artists lately and have been in love with the materials they have been using. With the order of new Kraft paper and rediscovery of the colored pencils I bought way back in high school, I have been going to town on a multitude of drawings. I feel like I am rediscovering me and my art by going back to basics with drawing more. Some where I had gotten it in my head that to sell my art it had to be painted and that just isn't the case. Anyhow, everyday after work I rush home to draw more. I am very proud of what I have been producing and feel very accomplished that I am continuing to develop my skills.

As I might have mentioned I have been working on a series of images based on the lesser known Grimm's Fairy tales. Tired of all the wolves and foxes and wanting to be inspired, I began researching fairy tales and folk lore.

All of the images below are works in progress. To see completed work, please visit my Etsy shop or my tumblr. Here is a taste of what I have been up to:


  1. They are so beautiful! I can't wait to see them in greater detail.

  2. Thanks Ness! I have one for sale in my Etsy shop, but the others drawings are going to be in a Grimm gallery show in December. So for now it is just a teaser for more to come. :)
