Daily Doodles – March 2009

Here are some of my Daily Doodles from the month of March. You can view the rest of them on my website here. Originals are for sale for $20 each.

A few of these were drawn live via my Ustream channel. Drop by if you would like to chat and ask questions as I draw and paint in real time. I broadcast every morning at 10 AM EST. You can also find archived videos of past shows on my Ustream profile.

Hello world. It’s me, Dani.

I rarely draw pictures of myself, but someone suggested I make a self-portrait in my cute drawing style, so I did. Sketch was done with ballpoint pen and watercolor.

The sketch was done during a live uStream session. Here’s the video:

Also includes a small tour of my workspace and a sketch of a cute bunny. Note that there’s no audio for the first 8 minutes because I forgot to turn the mic on. Sorry.

I draw live every weekday at 10 AM EST, if you care to join me. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/dani-draws

uStream Sketches

These are some sketches that I painted last week. All of them were colored during live broadcasts from my new uStream channel at uStream.tv. You can view the archived videos here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/dani-draws

These uStream broadcasts have been really fun to do. Viewers can interact via a chat window, and I can comment on my process as I am working. Starting next week, I am going to try to broadcast daily at 10 AM EST. Each session lasts about an hour. For more info and full schedule, please visit this page: http://danidraws.com/dani-draws-live/

As always, comments, critiques, and questions are always welcome.

Here’s a small teaser, recorded from one of the broadcasts (more video snippets here):

Daily Doodles – January 2009

Here’s a selection of some of my favorite Daily Doodles from last month. I took a break during the holidays, and then for a vacation at the end of last month. But otherwise, I’ve been keeping up. You can view the rest of my recent sketches here: http://www.danijones.com/dailydoodles.html

The originals are also for sale in my store. Thanks to everyone who have made purchases recently!

Daily Doodles – Weeks 9 & 10

I’m a little behind with posting my Daily Doodles, so this selection is from the past few weeks. I actually skipped one week because of the Thanksgiving holiday + a major cold. But you won’t notice, right?

You can view the rest of the weeks’ doodles in my store, where all the originals are for sale. As a sidenote, if you would like to commission a custom doodle for a holiday gift or something, you’re welcome to contact me. Enjoy!

Daily Doodles – Week 3

Scary stuff coming from the pencil this week! I would go to draw something cute and cuddly and end up with a zombie or killer clown. Quite a departure from what I usually do. Oh how I love October.

All the original sketches are for sale in my store, along with past weeks’ doodles. Enjoy!

Daily Doodles – Week 1

With all the illustrating, blogging, working, and business stuff that I do, I rarely have time to draw for FUN anymore. Weeks (or months!) can separate one page in my sketchbook from the next, and blog posts around here have become much too infrequent. That is just ridiculous!

So, I have recently resolved to creating at least one drawing a day, just for me. I just finished the first week. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:

I am really liking the results. Just the one little sketch per day is doing wonders for my creativity. I like the cute, and sometimes very random stuff that is coming out.

I have also added a store to my website, so I will also be selling the original sketches. Just browse right on over there if you want one. I’ll keep posting new ones weekly, too.
