muse of music?

I was at a friend's, who was showing off some awesome music he had written, and that made me pull out my sketchbook, since music tends to make me want to draw. And since the book was out, my friends made some requests...

My friend Katie asked for a fairy...

This is just what came to mind listening to my friend Brennan's song. It made me think of running and the wind... also of rain, but I didn't put that in.

I doodled this one today. Does anyone else feel like this when they can't seem to draw anything?
I've found that if I feel down, drawing it helps. You should try it too.

I have more doodles from the past week or two, it's been my goal to draw something every day during winter break. I'll try to put some more up soon.

Finally at home for winter break. Was hanging out with my brother's kids, and my niece Rachael (who is five) and I decided to draw each other. She was so enamored that I included the flowers on her dress that she insisted on giving me a huge flower on my shirt.

Studio is finally over for this semester. While frustrating (plus the fact I didn't make a lot of "final" art), I learned a lot.

For now, I leave you with my design for the character Rumpelstiltzkin. If you haven't read the Brothers' Grimm version, you might want to take a look. It's pretty interesting (and creepy!)
