Welcome to this September’s Sketch Fest Saturday! It’s been a leisurely day full of creativity, evoking the autumnal spirit with hedgehogs and fairies and witches and more. We hope you’ve joined us in either leaving prompts or creating art – or both!
If not, you should definitely check out the #EMGSketchFest gallery – but admire these featured illustrations first.
Ellen uploaded the first sketch to our gallery this month! She drew “Black Cat” as a bookplate sketch for the Zoe Chant Shifting Sands Resort series of books. You can purchase this sketch on the sticker paper bookplate for $10.
This is Hannah Stayton’s first Sketch Fest, and she created this completely adorable autumnal hedgehog illustration in “A Prickly Fall Flower.” She describes them as a “Cute little garden buddy to help you clean up the flower beds.”
Jill Britt sketched this provocative and eldritch witch and her tree in “A Witch’s Best Friend.”
Tricia Danby created magic in her painting of “Moon Witch,” reveling in the moon’s phases.
Let’s end with another beautiful black cat: as Madison says of her illustration “Moonlight,” it shows “A black cat crowded on to a shelf between some potion bottles and some toadstools, looking out the window at a full moon.” She did this in 22 minutes.
Now, head on over to the gallery and leave some comments for our artists! It’s not too late to sign up and participate on Sunday, either.
