It's hard to think up titles for blog posts!

Hello everyone! It's getting closer and closer to summertime and Bookkeeper is (in theory) enjoying the weather.

Well, not really. She's enjoying sitting near a fan while reading Discworld novels more than the actual weather. She's not a big fan of sweltering heat.

Hey, look! The bookkeeper just drew a pretty princess wearing pink!

...which, admitedly, was not her original plan. She was going to give her a more sunny-colored dress, but this is how it ended up. It looks rather nice, don't you think?

The princess is one character from the graphic novel Bookkeeper is trying to write. Here's another character:

They're not the only characters in the story (duh) but Bookkeeper hasn't come up with designs for the others yet. She has, however, finished her story's first draft. Woo-hoo! *grabs candy and TV remote* Time to celebrate with some non-mentally stimulating mush!

*Turns off TV and grabs a pencil* That's enough, now it's time for more drawing fun!

WHAT DO YOU MEAN, FUN?! This is depressing!

Bookkeeper's decided to try her hand at the 100 Themes Challenge, where you draw 100 pictures, each one illustrating a different predetermined theme. This is theme 28: Sorrow (nobody says you have to do them in order).

Bookkeeper thought it would be fun to try it over the summer (and longer - there are 100 of them to do...).

That's all the bookkeeper can think of to write about right now, so 'bye y'all.

So the bookkeeper hasn't done much drawing this week and doesn't have much to update about. But she's been working on rearranging the furniture in her bedroom. Which reminds her, this is the sign she's hung on the door to her room:

That's really all Bookkeeper has to say for today. G'bye!

Happy Mother's Day!

What better way to celebrate is there to celebrate Mother's Day than to take five seconds to draw a goofy picture of your mother?

But still, the Bookkeeper would like to take a moment to thank her mom for being the best mom ever.


And... now that we've got that over with (it wasn't that bad, was it?), let's take a look at what Bookkeeper's done this week.

She's drawn anthropomorphic wolves!

You'll notice the little stamp in the corner looks like this:

Bookkeeper is actually more proud of this than of the wolf-boy picture she stamped it on.

VRL probably stands for "Vile Roguish Lady." Or maybe it's just the bookkeeper's real initials, but that's not as cool sounding.

The bookkeeper's little doodles and sketches probably aren't what you wanted to see, though.

You probably wanted to see how Bookkeeper making a fool of herself last Tuesday when she tried to play video games with her friends. BUT YOU DON'T GET TO SEE THAT (Unless you happen to be one of Bookkeeper's video game playing friends).

Instead you get to see this:

The girl in the corner is supposed to represent the bookkeeper. If you want to, you can envision her playing video games.

The picture above is the finished version of the picture Bookkeeper was working on last week.

It's actually a re-drawing of a picture she did a year ago, before she learned how to use a thing called "perspective."

Here's the original:

The colors look pretty, but honestly, how much do the light blue lines in the background look like waterfalls?

Not much.

In other news, Bookkeeper's next project is to write her own version of the fairy tale "Rumpelstiltskin" and draw it as a graphic novel (or novella, depending on how enterprising she feels). Considering she's never written a graphic novel before, you'll just have to sit and wait to see if she finishes.
