So tonight was Ardent, a gathering here in Des Moines....annnnd....aside from one friend who showed up around 8:45pm...no one else showed. But I was prepared for that, so I took along some printed photos of deer and raccoons. I drew a page of raccoons and discovered I adore drawing them. They're actually pretty easy to do.
See the page in my sketch blog saradoodles
And out of those sketches came Rickie. Rickie is a...um..think of Grumpy from the CareBears. Thats Rickie. It's hard for him to have a good day. And here...he's just shoveled, only to finish to a new downfall of snow. Poor Rickie.
