Be unique and wondrous at all times – drawing

drawing inside fabriano quadrato artist journal by jessica doyle

Ideally we’d all be unique and wondrous at all times. This, however, would be difficult to achieve and maintain.

As children we were so. But, as we grew into adulthood we were taught to let go of this wonder and form into lines one after the other as we proceeded to checkout. While we are unique, we are more the same than we really want to admit. It is only through actions that we render each other indifferent perhaps.

Maybe it comes down to being honest with what makes you tick with those you love, admire and trust.

The drawing above was created using Prismacolor Verithin coloured pencils and Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens inside a Fabriano Quadrato Artist Journal.

Delilah the Fish – Meet the newest member of the Fish family

fish art by Jessica Doyle

Meet “Delilah the Fish” who is the newest member of the growing fish family.

She measures 8.5 x 11 inches (21,5cm by 27,7cm) and was created with the finest artist quality inks and coloured pencils on archival card stock.

Fish look wonderful hanging in bathrooms or in children’s bedrooms. They add a special bit a sea life to any home.

The original is listed here and limited edition prints are listed here. Do note that I am only producing 25 limited edition prints of Delilah.

And you can download a high resolution scan of Delilah and print out a whopping 29 by 22 inch version if you like from here!

Metamorphosis – anemone drawing

Anemone drawing by artist Jessica Doyle

When you have felt bad for so long you don’t realize how bad you actually were feeling until you feel a bit better. And when you really begin to believe that when you let go of all that bad, your heart will automatically open and be receptive to all the good.

I drew this mystical marine anemone with ink and coloured pencil inside a 9×9 inch Fabriano Quadrato Artist Journal.
