#dailycreating JUNE 2020

Time for another installment of a month of my #dailycreating drawings. Hosted by Visual Artist/Creative Encourager Terry Runyan, this Facebook group has as its lofty goal that we members do some sort of creating each day. I joined up with thir group in August, 2018, with the intent of working on my drawing skills. I just completed drawing #756 for today's creation.

I almost avidly follow the prompts Terry gives us for each day. Once in awhile, however, I do deviate  from the suggested prompt if it doesn't resonate with me. Then I'm off on my own, usually to draw up an animal or bird.

As always in these posts, I will include the #prompt for the day as well as any other information I may have about the subject matter. Most often I use a reference photo for my drawings. I'm working hard on trying to incorporate more of my imagination in my drawings. 

Here I present to you #dailycreating JUNE 2020.

I honestly did have fun with my drawing during June. At that time, I was incorporating a little colored pencil into my work to help with the look of the fur and feathers. Most of this time that worked well.

 More recently, however, I changed the type of paper I use and I am not as happy with the look of the combination of Copic Markers and Prismacolor pencils on this paper. This has forced me to go back to Copic Markers almost exclusively. I will keep playing around.

Please remember that these drawings are my own personal work and are not to be reproduced or used for anything else without my express consent. I will happily have a high quality Giclee Print made for you if you'd like. Simply contact me. Thanks for your respect.



  1. Your drawings are exquisite! You are doing so well, and I love seeing what you do.

  2. Linda,

    Excellent illustrations! You do such good work. The beagle sniffing the cupcake is my favorite. :)

  3. Wow! These drawings are amazing. I really like the's unique and feels like it has a lot of personality. Thank you for sharing! I'm visiting from the Tuesdays with a Twist linkup today. Have a great week Linda!

    1. Thank you so much, Marielle, for your kind words. I'm so glad you like them -- especially my sassy emu!

  4. Wow, Linda, really amazing and so interested to hear these are done with copic markers! What is your process, would love to hear about it!

    1. Thank you, Sara. I start out with a pencil drawing, and as I start in with the Copics I incorporate the pencil right into the drawing because once the markers go over the pencil, it cannot be erased. If I am having trouble blending, which often happens if the Copic is fairly dry, I bring in Prismacolor Pencils to help out. That's about it.

  5. These are incredible Linda, you are so talented.
