Sock Monkey Crocheted Baby Hat -Katie

A sock monkey for monkey week! Sorry for such a lame topic, haha.
Crocheted for a friend's baby boy. I think I'll go back and make the monkey's brim a bit thicker with the blue...maybe fix his mouth line a bit.

Hope everyone's having a great, inspiring week! <3

This Week Chosen By Jessica:

This week's Topic By Jessica:

"Actually, I was thinking about the topic "analytics and art". I recently got a job as the Marketing Coordinator at the nashville Technology Council, which I LOVE. But much of my day is spent flipping back and forth between creative thinking and analytical thinking.
I know many artists who have to do the same. But most people think that if you are a designer or artist you must be all creative all the time... someone with their head in the clouds. But that is not at all the case these days. We are all required to think with both sides of our brain and do things that a lot of people can't! Go into some HTML code and fix things up? Sure! Come up with a new poster to promote an event! Yes! Put together a Power Point presentation? Alright! Oh, and write some copy for this newsletter, which will be printed and sent out as an e-newsletter.
I do it all, and I love the challenge. But it's just that. A CHALLENGE. How does everyone else do it?"

Cultural Styles- Philip A. Buck

Also titled Walking the Dog
I chose to work in a historical artistic style this week, which was the Mixteca-Puebla style.
I thought I'd have some fun with it.  I did!
(I did this after the image Wedding of King Eight Deer to Lady Thirteen Serpent of Flowers)
Thanks for the fun, yet challenging topic, Gretchen!

This week's topic is,
-whatever you do, it must be done in a particular cultural style."

That's groovy.  I'm ready to get on it. Are you?

A Dapper Cat Doing Dapper Things -Philip A. Buck

(Click to Enlarge)
  I drew this quickly last Friday and was hoping to get it scanned and 'colored' before Sunday, but oh well, haha I didn't.  I sorta wish now that I had spent a little more time on the drawing part, especially the people, since some bits of this ended up purty good.  It had been a while since I'd done a comic page, so I figured this would be great practice.
 Great topic Destry! Lots of fun!

Daniel - Dapper Cat

Now that's what I call a cat-about-town.

And I guess black squares are my new medium...
