Challenge Day 3, Tiny Dwellings

Day 3 of the 30-day Challenge! I am venturing out into the snowy world today, and may return with some acrylic paints. But since I also expect a long day at work, I am posting two items completed last night before I brave the roads.

Treehouse with Orange Door
2.5″ x 3.5″ Copics, fine liners, white gel pen

A tiny treehouse – home to Maury, the gnome family therapist. And below, a tiny apartment building, home to various denizens of a tiny city. Both are art card size 2.5″ x 3.5″.  These are tiny houses 31 and 32 in my 100 Tiny Houses Project.

The Peapod Apartments
2.5″ x 3.5″ Copics, fine liners, white gel pen

I recently answered some Copic marker questions by email. I think I’ll put up a new page with Copic information I’ve learned in the last 2+ years. I also need to post a new photo (or 2!) of Wilson. Maybe tomorrow! Progress pics below. Thanks so much for stopping in!

    I love that your gnome is a family therapist. These tiny houses are so neat. I love them! I enjoy thinking about the little worlds they exist in. Such a great story telling tool!

    Maury the gnome therapist…so cute and makes me laugh as my day job is a therapist in private practice. Love the peapod house.

    It is neat to see your drawings/paintings process and how the drawing comes out of the lines and into the vibrant color that you give them. Looking forward to reading some about Copic markers. I would be interested to know how you get the white on the final touches. Is it paint? or just really opaque color from a marker? P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog – I appreciate it!

    Your treehouse is fantastic! I love the circular window with the petals! You are so clever! Is that a little feeder on the side?

    I never liked living in apartments much, but I would totally take a spot in that Peapod building. Of course, I would also have to be very much smaller. I think that’s okay.

    Wow! Your paintings are so amazing! They look like something out of an animated Disney movie or Dreamworks. I do kaleidoscopic snowflakes some times in pen and ink sometimes, but I think marker would work great on them too. Will definitely try experimenting with marker more often. I used markers heavily when I was in college as an interior design student in order to do perspectives, but I haven’t used them since. I’m so inspired, though, by your blog. Wonderful, beautiful work, Cindy! :)
