Drawing with the sisters

Happy holidays! Family reunions are always fun, especially when we start drawing each other. My little sister loves to draw too. Today we both drew an older sister, um, in our own unique styles. I don’t know why, but I tend to caricature my seesters ugly. It’s much more fun… I guess it’s more about the reaction. My version is the bottom one with the lips. She got fake angry. Or maybe real angry…

Anyway, then we decided to draw our older sisters as mermaids, inspired by a Tom Bancroft book I got my younger sister for Christmas. This book was filled with fun drawings Disney/Marvel/DC/etc characters in silly random situations, which reminded me of the times I had drawing with my little sister growing up. Actually, the Bancroft brothers in general remind me of fun times drawing with my little sister… Oh yeah, so mermaids. The Tom Bancroft book also has a section of his MerMay drawings, which is apparently a mermaid drawing challenge that happens during the month of May. Well, it definitely ain’t May now, but inspiration was just knocking at our door. And we answered it:

Lady acrobat character Bertha

Meet Bertha. She’s the leader of a sky acrobat team of heroines trained entertainers. Her specialty is the hula hoop and she handles one that weighs 20 pounds. Enemies are often thrown off by her surprising flexibility. Sometimes she gets intense cravings for chunky peanut butter and chocolate desserts. Hates climbing trees.skycandylady1

Inspired by a life drawing session with Austin’s SkyCandy.

A fun twist on the Rorschach test, don’t you think?

I saw Phoenix:
