Sunday Sketches (Grandpa's Lamp)

Follow along with Jacob as he grabs his grandfather's old lamp and ventures off into the fresh fallen snow, seeking out new adventures. What do YOU think he'll find along the way?  More working out characters and illustrations telling a perfect story. I'm definitely enjoying this new creative journey.

Things are finally getting to a place where I'll be blogging on a regular basis again. It will be wonderful catching up with each of you. Here's to a wonderful weekend for all of us!

  1. very cute sketch, it's great to be on a new creative journey.

  2. Sweet! I guess we all needed a blogging break. Happy New Year!

  3. Jacob is a dear character. I imagine he will hear birds high in the trees, tracks in the snow, a deer eating moss from forest trees and a moose in the distance.

  4. a beautiful young man :)

    Hope 2017 finds you well.

  5. I would be happy to invite cute Jacob for dinner tonight. I will serve some rosemary roasted potatoes ;) - And I would love to know where he got this sweet sweater from!

  6. Not sure what he will find, it is a big, big world (of white) out there. But the first thought that popped into my mind when I saw this sketch was 'this is Michael' :)
    Happy New Year, Alexandra!

  7. You really are achieving the goal of having each illustration tell a story (or suggest one to the viewer). This one and the last one you posted are terrific.

  8. Well, surely Jacob will bring along his little dog who loves the snow (as my Izzi does). We wouldn't dare go on an adventure without her. It will be fun to watch your imagination unfold, drawing on your life's experience and your hopes for this young man. Venture on, Jacob and in the meantime, my little friends Emma and Elanor will be reading and rereading about your ladybug :)Stay warm ...
