Sketchbook Sunday: Lichen Deer & Rabbits

This week was fairly unproductive drawing-wise. The welcome spring weather brought a minor but unwelcome flood to the basement, my children had colds and the ignition switch on the car started to malfunction, causing it to turn itself off while being driven...all in all I spent a lot of time vacuuming water, wiping noses and not drawing.

I found this silk screen print of an earlier version of Hybrid which I made at the Martha Street Studio in Winnipeg when we were still living in Manitoba. For anyone living in that area, the Martha Street Studio is a wonderful place to hang out, take classes, meet new people and so on.

Sketchbook Friday has now become Sketchbook Sunday, but onwards and upwards! Included below are a couple of sketches I have been playing around with:
Lichen Deer

I am really interested in lichen from a visual standpoint, but I recently discovered it is actually a composite plant, consisting of a fungus and its photosynthetic partner, usually an algae, which I find vaguely off-putting.

Rabbit sketch for a piece I am planning called Migration
