Sarah Gay - Loves baths

Tara Jacoby - Mating Rituals

Catching up on the challenges I missed tonight! Sorry so tardy!

Carly Janine Mazur - Love Wizard

Haven't used pigment liners in a while!

Jeanine Henderson—Love Potion No. 9

Sorry to "cheat" tonight, but very little time between the office & freelance work! This is part of a personal project I started over the weekend—an illustrated cocktail recipe for "Love Potion No 9" ( a delicious concoction of ice cream, strawberries and vodka—yum!) Something I'd been thinking about for a promotional piece around Valentine's Day, but only getting the time to get into now. Since it's fits with the blog theme, figured it was fair game to share :)

Alice Stanne - For the Love of Books

One of my greatest loves is books. Beautiful, real, paper and bindings books. I love reading them, smelling them, owning them. If I shop for something I really don't need more of, it's books. I drew the spines of a few of my favorite books I read repeatedly while I was growing up.

From left to right: Ozma of Oz by L. Frank Baum, Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie, The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster, Froggie Went A'Courting illustrated by Chris Conover, The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy, This Is For You by Rob Ryan, Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, One Times One (1 x 1) by E.E.Cummings and Sailing Alone Around the Room by Billy Collins.

Marc Scheff - Anything, but that

My values and integrity. I am a pretty flexible guy, but it will take a lot more than love to make me change thosef.

Challenge #10 for Tuesday Feb. 26th

Our 10th Challenge  comes courtesy of Kristina Carroll

 The subject is:  "Love Song Shuffle".  Put your entire music playlist on shuffle. The first love song that you hear is the inspiration for your next piece.

Jeffrey Alan Love - Moby Dick

"And this is what ye have shipped for, men! to chase that white whale on both sides of land, and over all sides of earth, till he spouts black blood and rolls fin out."

Scott Murphy - Freeform Sunday

Here's a quick sketch of a character i'm working on for a painting.

Scott Murphy - I'd Do Anything For Love But I Won't Do That

Sorry, a crazy weekend put me off a day!

I'd do anything for love, but I won't have my wife executed in order to get with another woman.

Narciso Espiritu - Power Rangers

I used to love Power Rangers as a kid growing up in the 90s. Sometimes I still do.

Just some quick helmets. Trying to catch up.

Narciso Espiritu - I'd Do Anything for Love, But I Won't Do That

I think I wouldn't lie to myself or to another person about liking them/ loving them just because.

I mean, if you're not ready, you're not ready. I feel like it's wrong to take advantage of that.

Kristina Carroll - Freestyle Sunday

I got home in time to catch the tail end of the Oscars, so I tried to do a little "life" sketching.

I thought they were a bit puny, so here are a couple more random sketchbook pages:

Chris O'Neill - I would do anything for love....

....But I won't shave my beard or put on a polo shirt. I look about 8 years old without facial hair.
