Woo hoo! I just got my 100th follower on Instagram. I know its a meager milestone but I try to celebrate the little achievements. You can follow me on Instagram too! Relyea_Arts 

So I decided to commit to 100 small sketches of animals. I will try to post one a day but I'm not making any promises! lol 

A little red panda - this little dude took me longer than it should've. That's what happens when you stop drawing.  001/100 - LETS DO THIS THING!


its INKTOBER baby!

So this is the first year I really wanted to try to do the INKTOBER challenge. Basically it was started by an artist who knew he should be drawing everyday, to practice. Then it blew up from there. He put out a list of ideas to help artists get ideas of what to draw and the rest is up to you. So naturally I'm a day late but I'm really motivated this year to participate. So here are my first and second day drawings. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to send encouraging comments. I need all the motivation I can get.

Day 1: SWIFT



Total eclipse of the...

It has been too long since my last post. Summers will do that to you. Here is a small sketch of some hand-lettering. Had a lot of fun but need to practice more.

Hope everyone got to see a glimpse of the eclipse. The clouds were perfect cover to get a photo without destroying my phone! Woot! An amazing, rare site. 


That mug

Hey look, day 2 of my drawing a day. Here is a beautiful wrinkly wonder! Just a quick drawing. I definitely need to practice my life drawing. I've gotten very lazy. I hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!

A dog a day keeps the doctor away...

So I will be attempting to do a drawing a day of a certain subject and January is Dogs! I know what you're saying, "Hey Erin, it's Jan. 5th. You're a little late." And to that I say... "Yup, better late than never, right?!" Here is a little doodle of a corgi that I took into Adobe Illustrator. I think he came out just too perfect. lol Enjoy and we'll see how long I can keep this up!


What to do. Always end up at this giant cement cube of horror. I have a ton of projects but they all seem... uninteresting. Lets hope this week will produce results!
