Pencil Sketch of Apollo

A pencil sketch from my studio, because I spent part of the day doing pencil sketches of a dummy.

The Gradual Evolution of Apollo

Apollo is slowly turning from a white cat to a beige one with stripes. Interesting.

Scallion Pancakes







Today was a big day for cooking. Our family loves Thanksgiving, so I decided to do a Thanksgiving meal today. Instead of our usual 20+ lb. turkey, I roasted a 13 lb. turkey and made most of the fixings (green beans, mashed potatoes, stuffing from a bag, gravy, and cranberry sauce in the shape of a can). No pies or desserts.

I also revised a new picture book story that involved scallion pancakes, which prompted me to make a batch. Half way through, I realized I had no scallions in the house, so I ran out and got some.

Post-Nap Stretching

These were very hastily drawn as Apollo was waking up and stretching. He's never heard of the 1 minute pose for artists.

Apollo's Day

It may seem like Apollo only ever naps, but it's just that I can sketch him easily.

TBT: Portrait sketches

© Sylvia Liu
I've been busy this week running Kidli411's giveaway posts (today's is really good - golden tickets to agents), so I'll throw up some old sketches from a live model portrait class I took about five years ago.

Also working on the shark infographics.

I hope I'm not boring you with these cat nap sketches.

Meet Apollo Lars


Happy New Year! Today ends my super long winter break and tomorrow I will start back up with the daily creative sketches.

In the meantime, meet Apollo Lars Jacobs, the newest member of our household, a 12-week old Siberian kitten. I see a lot of kitten sketches in my future.
