I’m Moving My Art! Come with me!

Check it out here: http://www.rebeccagalardoart.com/

I needed a little bit more freedom with my website.  WordPress is great, I love it, but the free version is a little limited.  Since I already have a Tigertech account for my writing, it’s less than $2 a month to have my own art site.  That’s worth it to me because then I can use cool plug ins, choose from more themes and have a lot more freedom and control over the site!  I also hope to have a small shop here for anyone interested in prints or originals of my work.  I am starting a #100days Ink and Pen drawing commitment and I would love to be able to offer these works to anyone interested in them 🙂  So, I certainly needed my own domain.

Lastly, I really love to see my progress personally, so I wanted to make sure I moved all of my old blog posts, pictures and pages to the new site.  It’s all there, just with a new look 🙂

So go on over and tell me what you think!  Please feel free to give me your opinion.  I want the site to be fun and engaging for my readers.

I should be posting there later today with my first drawing in the #100days Pen and Ink series.

You Can Draw While Doing Many Activites – Here is Just a Quick Drawing of my Dinner

I only spent 15 minutes on it but it was fun, made me so happy to have done some art on a day filled with work and chores, and I felt giddy afterwards because I had carved out time for ME.

So do yourself a favor.  Draw something.  Anything.  Good or bad.  Just enjoy the recording of a part of your life.

Art is Everywhere – Some Art for Biker Friends

I have been so busy in the last few weeks but I still manage to make art a priority.  Just not necessarily posting about art!

A friend of mine was throwing a party for a bunch of biker friends.  I figured that I could help by making signs our our back patch and arrows.

So I took a picture of our patch and traced it on my Cintiq Companion Hybrid and then took the outline and printed it out for the smaller signs. Using the lightbox my husband built for me I traced the patch onto two small halves of a posterboard.

For the larger sign I connected the computer to a projector, put two poster boards together and then traced from there.

After that, I started to fill in the colors with various markers. Continue reading
