Hug Me Bugs and Bunnies

Fleece Hug Me Bug Art Toys by Elizabeth Ruffing, mint greenI’ve been adjusting my patterns for my new Hug Me Bugs and for my Hug Me Bunnies, making them slightly fatter.

I get mental blocks about some things. The drawing came along fine, but I couldn’t remember how I put it into the hang tag format I made before!

My goal is to learn more about digital drawing and painting…and remember it too! Sooner or later it will sink in, and hopefully stay in my head. I’m sure it is one of those things like riding a bike, that you just need to do enough times before you don’t have to consciously recall all the how-to details. I’m thinking about eventually getting another computer, for my workroom, so I have a place to concentrate on any writing or drawing projects I might want to do.
