A Small(ish) Art Dump // Q + A

Hey frens! My last post was excessively long and rambly. I promise that this post is much shorter. (probably more boring but y’know, you win some you lose some.)

Sooo…the other day, someone on the internet mentioned that they would like to see some of my art.

And I was just over here goin’:

There isn’t much to see, let me tell you.

I don’t consider myself much of an artist. (at least in the terms of drawing, sketching, painting…and pumpkin carving).

I’m more of a dabbler.

Merriam-Webster defines artist as one who professes and practices an imaginative art or a person skilled in one of the fine arts.

I can hardly claim to be either of those things.

I scribble around and sometimes, on rare occasions, everything manages to come together and look decent. (Most times it looks like garbage.)

But I haven’t let that keep me back, either. I just go right on making garbage and will do so till my heart is content.

My inner critic can go fly a kite.

So, in case you didn’t figure it out yet, this post is going to be an art dump. (apologies for the low-quality images. I’m not a photographer, after all.)


It is only natural that I start this post out with pictures of hedgehogs. (if you look really closely at the second drawing, you can see a face…my paper was a bit thin. 😬)


Recent snail mail randomness.


wHaLeS!!!


My cartoon version of Mr. Darcy. 😀


This picture was from a drawing challenge I did back in December 2019.


All images belong to ME. Unfortunate things will befall those who use them without permission. I will hunt you down. I will find you. I will pillage your fridge. I will burn your books…while I sit by…eating pizza…and forcing you to watch it all. Don’t cross me. Or my hedgehogs…they’ll shoot their quills at you.

So, there you go. I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my art/pictures/garbage/stuff.


Now, you’re probably wondering why I mentioned a Q&A in my title.

Welp. It’s because my blogoversary is coming up rather quickly and for lack of a better idea, I’ve decided to celebrate the one year milestone with a Q+A. So drop as many questions in the comments below as your heart doth desire and in next time’s post I will attempt to answer them as we eat cake together and celebrate The Happy Hedgehog’s birthday. (I don’t even know if I have enough followers to do a Q+A but y’know, let’s just roll with it!)

  1. So… I’m usually that person commenting on weeks old posts, but maybe today I’m (one of) the first? (Mix it up, ya know?) 

    Of course we want to see your artwork!!! *folds arms – wins staring match* M’kay, are you convinced? (Also, that IS a fantastic gif.  ) I love all of these pieces, but my favorites are the boy giving a gift to the elderly gentleman, Mr. Darcy, the whales, the friendship envelope art, the hello card, and the second hedgie. (Okay, so that was close to everything… but I careth not.  ) I like your styles of drawing so much! They are heartwarming. Keep it up, dear.

    1. Hey, wordpress! Where did my emojis go? I accuse you of eating them for a snack. *glares* ALSO, the rest of my comment! What have you done with it??

      Here’s the rest of my comment that didn’t post. *humph*

      Okay: Q&A!!!
      1. What has happened to Jeb and Ollie and Ferdinand??? Have they perished?
      2. What’s the best thing and the worst thing about being homeschooled?
      3. If you decided to learn to play an instrument, what would it be?

      I could make up tons of questions (it’s fun!!) but I guess I’ll stop there for now. I wouldn’t want you to have like an 8-part Q&A post.

      P.S. I obviously have way too much of a penchant for parentheses. Which is unfortunate because I’m pretty sure I don’t even know how to use them correctly. (Ha!)

    2. Congratulations on being punctual. I commend thee! 😉

      Aw, thanks, lovely! ❤️ Those are my favorites too.

      UGH. I hate when comments get eaten…sorry about that. 😐

      Thank you for the wonderful questions! I shall have fun answering them. 😀 (Heehee, well, I seem to have the same problem. There’s just something decidedly charming about parentheses! 😂)

    1. If you were to switch place with a Disney princess which would you switch places with and what would you change about their actions?
    2. If you had to switch place with a VILLIAN (bahaha) and have to fight for their cause in any film/movie/book, which would switch with? And what in their approach of fighting for their cause would you change?
    3. If you met your characters in the middle of a fight say at Walmart, what would your reaction be.
    4. Why not cilantro?

  3. Lovely post!
    1. What inspired you to start blogging?
    2. Favorite Wingfeather sibling? (Or, if you haven’t read the Wingfeather Saga, do you want to?)
    3. Favorite music artists/albums and why?
    4. Invite a dead person over to your house. (Obviously, he/she will have to act alive. But must actually be dead.) (Let me rephrase: pick a hero of yours who is real but not currently alive, and imagine that they are alive and at your house.) Write a short dialogue between the two of you. (That wasn’t really a question. Oh well.)

      Heehee! Well, I didn’t actually know there was a song with that title, I just saw the envelope on pinterest and was like “that’s so cute” and drew my own version. 😂

      Sorry, Whaley is mine. But you can pet him if you want. 😄

      Thank youuu. He was my favorite to draw.
