Vomit Fairy

 
I've been missing in action for a couple of weeks with good intentions. I had been trying to aim for an art heavy schedule to get new items in my store and lots of fresh new art to sell and then BAM! Flu! Today is day six of a really evil virus. In honour of laying in bed whimpering like a baby for most of the past week, I made this hideous little vomit fairy tonight. He's not very friendly and I'm looking forward to kicking his smarmy face out of my house. On the bright side, I did manage to catch up on a lot of sleep. Yay?

Below are a few life drawings from a couple of recent sessions earlier this month. Still digging the Staedtler ball point pen a lot. So smoooooth! No correcting mistakes though and I have to admit that I miss my gummy eraser.



I have a bunch of mixed media canvas pieces on the go, though they didn't see much action this week. I should have some new stuff to post for next week though. It's been a fun change up from digital illustrations.

  1. Hi Sal. Sorry you have been sick. Maybe drawing this hideous little monster will help get it out of your system. Feel better quick.

  12. The Vomit fairy is quite cool actually :) Fab sketches as usual ( I am your sketching fan!). Take time to rest, sometimes we need to be ill, because body tells us to slow down and that we need it. Get better soon! Big hugs!

  15. Oh my, vomit fairy sounds a bit yucky. Doesn't look yucky though, but he does look a bit mean. I can understand you want him out of the house. Hiope you'll soon be feeling better!

  21. Ha ha that vomit fairy is absolutely priceless. I am going to a bacon festival tomorrow where I will be sampling a hundred different types of bacon plus bacon cocktails so I hope I do not turn into a vomit fairy. Happy PPF!

  22. I had that flu earlier this year -- no fun. Glad you were able to embody your disgust in your vomit fairy -- very evil and excellent portrayal. Love your staedler sketches -- the blue ink adds a nice aura. I don't see any mistakes -- every line seems natural and part of the form.

  23. Lovely works, as always...as for being missing in action...welcome to my world. I suspect I had that virus couple of weeks ago and I felt like I would not survive it. Nasty! The good thing is that as fast as it hit you, it goes away. Probably tomorrow you will wake up and voila' you'll feel like yourself again! ;) All the best, lots of sympathy and many praises for your beautiful art in the face of adverse circumstances. Hugs!

  24. Bwahahaha! I feel guilty loving your Vomit Fairy, because I know it did not come from an awesome place (quite the opposite, in fact!). I hope you feel better, you poor girl. Your life drawings are amazing! I hope it was a gala affair. ;)

  29. You are showing that nasty flu bug who is boss! Well done! Get well soon. I like how your sketches show more than just young, slim hourglass bodies!

  34. I love that you used your creative energy to get the flu feelings out. I think the turquoise was a good choice, it just pops off of the page. Sorry that you have not been well, though.

  35. I hope you don't have to see that fairy ever again :oP
    The nuddies are awesome, we ran a month of human body sketches in march, those would've been perfect there too!
