Just working away … The stripes and folds in the fabric are really taking shape. The highlights and shadows are starting to make more sense and pop. Being a toddler with her round face makes me realize how much my own babies have changed too. #portrait, #art, #drawing, #pencil, #girl, #cat, #kiss, #aleciagoodman

Inbetween the Lines

Earning my stripes this time around. At times it goes really and others it’s painstaking slow. Still I’m loving it and think she’s so darned cute. Did you know artists are sometimes scared of drawing certain things like hands, faces, fur, and even stripes? Personally I love doing these. #portrait, #art, #drawing, #pencil, #girl, #cat, #kiss, #aleciagoodman

Getting Cheeky

It’s starting to take on personality. A lot of blocking in coming up next. Is she looking cute or ornery? #portrait, #art, #drawing, #pencil, #girl, #cat, #kiss, #aleciagoodman

Taking Shape

It’s taking shape and showing its personality. I’m starting to get excited about it. #portrait, #art, #drawing, #pencil, #girl, #cat, #kiss, #aleciagoodman

Notes Gone Ghibli

Every day for school I try to include a note with my kids lunches and snacks. Sometimes they are a reminder or just a phrase to prompt a smile. Normally I try to do a quick sketch referencing something they’ve watched or are into at the moment. Can you identify all the movies and characters? Or maybe answer a question? #drawing, #aleciagoodman, #Ghibli, #movies, #sketch, #Favorite

Rollercoaster Training Wheels

Its time to wrap up this Inktober. I know this year took me a while to finish and even this last one was horribly late too. I really like this one though, it makes me reminisce. Reminds me of an NBAA invitation I designed years ago playing off of planes, trains, and automobiles. Or maybe even from high school waiting for the train to crawl by while I sat in my truck after swim practice.

This past month has been a rollercoaster ride of emotions. I have been struggling with juggling work and being a teacher for my kids’ remote schooling. I’m not a teacher or a counselor or a computer tech person … but I’ve been wearing all of those hats. I feel like we are all just going day by day, some days very much like today only managing with tears, training wheels, and kid gloves. Its been hard, but I know it could be so much worse. Remember crawling might be slow moving, but in the end somehow we’ll get there. I keep reminding myself tomorrow will be better and we’ll get back to our normal, hoping for sooner than later. Stay safe everyone. #Inktober2020, #crawl, #aleciagoodman, #train, #engines, #railroad, #trainingwheels, #pandemic, #school

Something Wicked

Almost there, just one more to finish. Inktober Day 30, Ominous … What if you’re only weapon was a wand and your intellect. Would you still blunder aroind in the dark with only a lantern to make your way by? One of my favorite fictional characters is a witch and her greatest weapon was her mind. I would only hope in that situation I’d find the courage to keep going. #Inktober2020, #ominous, #witch, #girl, #wand, #lantern, #dark, #stonewall, #wall, #bun, #messybun

Inktober Day 29 Shoes, possibly one of the biggest holidays at our house is Halloween. We all love dressing up. One of the hardest parts of a costume is finding the right footwear. The magical question: Witch shoes are perfect? #inktober2020, #shoes, #witch, #woman, #stockings, #stripes, #stripedstockings, #ink, #drawing, #aleciagoodman,

Floating Donuts

Inktober Day 28 Float … due to the virus this past summer we spent a lot of time at our neighborhood pool. Normally in the mornings or early afternoons to avoid people. We took donuts off and on depending on the wind. On a particular windy day my youngest dropped one of the donuts and was asked to hold another so we could grab the first one. The second was dropped right after that. All of our neighbors heard the screams and watched as we chased them around the pond. Somehow we captured them, though I had my doubts. Hence the rule if its too windy, “No Donuts!” #inktober2020, #float, #girl, #swim, #pfd, #donut, #water, #pool, #vertical, #swimsuit, #splash, #aleciagoodman,

Inktober Day 27 Music, still going. I like the idea of a contrast with this one. I picked a hare to mix with music. #Inktober2020, #Inktober, #music, #hare, #rabbit, #headphones, #fur, #dj, #animal, #aleciagoodman,
