Marrus orthocanna is a type of Siphonophore which is closely related to the Jelly fish. They can be quite long – but this one is only 40 cm (a little over 1 foot)
The color was so amazing that I broke out the colored pencils. Not super happy with the result, the colors murked it up. Might try it in photoshop as well.
As promised – Caryn’s chickens – Taco is the head chicken in front. What a character. Can’t wait to meet her in person.
Diane and Stiv won a free drawing by guessing the closest!
Here is the photo again – Tiny sheep-like Faux Fur Tribble Soft-Sculptures that sit on my window sill. No rocks inside. Was fun to see people guess things like hedges – color can be so absent in a drawing.
Tiny Sketches O’ The Day:
Micah dropped me off at Merritt College an hour before my pruning class (and before anyone else) this am and I spent the time doing tiny sketches in the gardens! Bench with my bags, fountain, and flowers on a post-it note. Lined paper was actually fun for the fence and bench rails, but think I need a new tiny sketchbook!
Sketch O’ The Day: Can you guess what it is? I will draw a sketch for the winner and post it on Facebook. Hint: Micah is excluded from this contest as this lives in my living room.
Going to start posting sketches for fun – haven’t been drawing enough!
I am so excited that my Sketch-up model got selected to be on the Mutated Structure Project website. I taught myself Sketch-up to enter my model because I thought this was such an interesting project. Mutated Structure Project is an interactive database archiving mutations of an 8ft x 10ft x 10ft wooden stick frame structure. Here is what they thought of my idea!

“Wonderful idea, it’s hilarious to imagine bikers zipping through and grabbing produce. Like a sustainable fast food drive through window.” – AMV
