The Lost Boys 1-10

I feel like I've been a bit absent in my art world lately, but that may be because I've been ramping up my bnnk work for the past couple of weeks, and preparing for le animalé birthday festivities which are now underway! Wooo.

After finishing the 10 Lost Girls in my 365 sketchbook, I accidentally started a series of Lost Boys. Why not? I'm glad they showed face, and I love how different they are from the girls.

Day 115. Unintentional, but today Lost Boy Ricardo came by for some air time, too. He's a wicked trumpeter who is getting really fed up with constantly misplacing things lately. His favorite food is cornbread. Acrylic, white charcoal, and white gel pen.

Day 116. Well I suppose now I can't make 10 lost girls and not 10 lost boys. Here is Mickey. He likes to garden.

Day 117. This is Lost Boy Llayn. He has a pet polar bear and counts all of his steps through the forest. He's at step 4,356,87... Wait, he lost count! A long time ago, actually.

Day 118. This is Saldon, a man who lives high up in the mountains. He loves riding his bike down the mountain and then floating back up on the wings of mighty birds. His favorite snack is pears.

Day 120. Almost 1/3 of the way there! So fun. Here is Jacoi, and I would tell you what he does but it's kind of a secret. I can say that he has about 41 hairs on his head.

Day 121. Vlayvin, an active guy who has a taste for honey dew ice cream and fried chicken. He volunteers on the regular.

Day 124. This is Walter. He's a pretty good guy - he told me to paint a hummingbird tomorrow. 😄

For all of these guys I used a blanket of acrylic paynes gray + titanium white acrylic accents, then went over with a white gelly pen for lines and details, and finished up with a white charcoal pencil for some shading. It was fun being whimsical and quirky with these guys, and 10 is the perfect number for me to feel satisfied and ready for something new. Since Lost Boy Walter yesterday told me to start next with a painting of a hummingbird, that's what I'll be working on today. Join me on Instagram to follow along with where my project is going daily! I just passed the 1/3 mark!
