It’s week 4! The topic I chose this week is Princess in Peril or Damsel in Distress. I hope it inspires some fun drawings! Next week I’ve asked a fellow sketchoholic to do a sketch and choose the topic and it sounds like they’re doing it! I’ll post more about it next week but I’m so excited about including other artists in this contest series (even if we’re not so famous .
Whoa! Looks like this blog has been on vacation… what’s going on here? Lots!
I’m here today to mention that I’m hosting a few contests over on Sketchoholic.com. I’ve missed the weekly competitions over there. It’s really nice to be part of a community of artists who just want to draw together! I decided it was about time I gave back a little and so that’s what I’m doing! I’ve been inking some 4×6 drawings as prizes and so far I have enough for 4 contests.
‘Monster Portrait’ was the first contest and it’s nearly wrapped up. It’s been fun to see all of the variations on the theme! Here is the prize for this contest…
If you are interested in checking out the next contest it should start Monday of next week! Visit Sketchoholic.com and look for the icon at the top of this post. I’m calling the series ‘Sketchoholics Anonymous’ so come on out and join me for some drawing!
This is fun news. I’ve found out that Cop’s Night Before Christmas has been featured in a few articles and blog entries online! Take a look!

Comment 8. Melinda! Congratulations, Melinda and thank-you for sharing your favorite holiday food which is your Grandmommies Pumpkin Pie! I’d have to say that pumpkin pie is one of my personal favorites too so it’s good to know that this drawing will be going to a fellow pie-lover! If you don’t get an email from me please contact me via this website with your mailing address so I can send you the watercolor!
Thanks to everyone who entered my little contest. I’ve really enjoyed promoting Cop’s Christmas and meeting people at the book signings. Thank-you to everyone for all of the support .
