Wild & Wonky Selfies From Distorted Photos, & Lots of Laughter


By far my favorite assignment in "Playing" Klass in Summer Sketchbook Skool was to draw myself in a wild way from a distorted photo! Each one of these "Me's" tickled me more than the one before it.







So many selves! It's such a good thing when I can laugh at myself! And laugh and laugh I did!!!!


I also laughed hysterically this past week when I fell off my thread mill and found it difficult to figure out how to scoot off the moving belt with out killing myself in the process.


I felt less humorous when I had to undergo dental surgery again for a tooth removal and bone grafting! But I am healing okay from that ordeal.


I continue to have fun with the Every Day in July drawing prompts, this one was "Puzzled" ...

and the next one was "dreamscape" ...




I continue to have fun drawing at Starbucks almost filling up my new handmade (by Carmel) toned paged art journal in one direction of this wonderful folded book.


I will let these three ladies with their delightful laughter keep us in theme! It's been a humorous week for the most part.

Wishing you a creative week!
 
Thanks for coming by, I appreciate your visits and your comments.
I hope I left you with a smile.

    1. Mascha, selfies are a hoot, straight or distorted! Give it a try! Let me know what you think!
      Thanks for your response about the words on your art. Some looks as though you wrote it in a very lovely longhand.

  7. So glad you are recovering from the dental surgery OK, Lynn. In fact, I like that sketch best and the text with it. All your drawings are so wonderful. Who needs the comic page from the paper when we have Lynn?
