Buncha Stuff

Hey everyone!
I hope you are all doing well! I just have a quick little art drop for today, nothing too fancy -

 Finished this commission near the beginning of October, but never posted about it until now! Just a cute little portrait of grandkids.

  Started this watercolor/ink drawing the other day and still haven't gotten around to finishing it. Typical me.



Finally, this is the first bird of a series of cute lil fluffy birds I will be starting during the month of December! The snow always makes me think about birds for some reason, so I thought it would be fun to paint a bunch of them this month. They will be for sale on my website, so keep an eye out for them! I will update my Instagram and Facebook with details when they are, though! 

Thank you all so much for your support! 

Cheers,
Ashley xoxo

I just wanted to do a quick post with the rest of my Inktober creations! I'm pretty sad that October is over and I won't get to doodle up Skelly or Spider for another year, but I'm also really excited about all the free time I suddenly have!

If you were curious, there is a book full of the adventures of Skelly & Spider from 3 years ago when I started them! (2014, not these photos!) You can purchase it here:

Inktober 2017 - Part 1

Hey everyone!

I hope you all are having an awesome October so far! This is always my favorite time of year for so many reasons - - It's no longer 1,000 degrees outside, the leaves start changing color, everything tastes super cozy and warm... and Inktober of course!

For Inktober this year, I decided to bring back our old friends Skelly and Spider! It's been a good 3 years since I last did anything with them, so I thought it would be fun to bring them back again! I will be posting my Inktober photos here every other week, so stay tuned! Here are the first 5 days of Inktober:

Day 1: Our old friend Skelly awakes from his slumber.

 Day 2: Skelly finds Spider.

 Day 3: Skelly & Spider do some ironing.

 Day 4: Skelly & Spider play poker with friends.

Day 5: Spider gives Skelly a makeover.

That's it for today! I will post again soon to show you guys some more Inktober shenanigans!

Cheers,
Ashley xoxo

Stranger Things Fan Art & Chalk the Block Update

Hey everyone!

So sad to say that my boyfriend and I will not be participating in Chalk the Block this year after all. The event was postponed to this weekend due to a rainstorm last week. Our schedules are just too full this weekend to be able to move anything around at this point. Good news though - we will still be completing our mural piece, but just on paper instead of asphalt. Here is a sneak peek of what we have been working on:

 I will definitely post more updates on my blog once we get some good progress made on the final piece!

In other news, I am going to be participating in a Stranger Things-themed art show on Halloween this year. (Are you all so excited for the second season of Stranger Things?!) Some of you may remember the Eleven piece I did last year...

 ...but for this show, I wanted to create something new!
So I'm currently working on a new piece! Here is the progress so far:

 I won't give away the secret super fun part about this piece quite yet, so keep an eye out for the finished piece on my blog! (& other social media, of course!)

That is everything I have to share with you guys today! I am currently working on some larger projects and trying to get those finished up, so you may notice a lack of artwork. Hopefully I will be able to show you all the stuff I've been working on super soon and just dump it all in one epic blog post!

Thank you! Have a lovely week!

Cheers,
Ashley xoxo
