Carved Alphabet

If you are not afraid to use a dark pencil or a pen to draw on plastic erasers, you can carve your own stamps. Here is an alphabet I carved. Just remember to draw the letters backwards or transfer them on with graphite paper. I like the freshness of drawing straight onto the carving material. But if you are timid there are other transfer methods.
Once you put your drawings onto stamps,  you can share them with everyone.  Stamp them on stickers, fabric, playing cards, art cards, mirrors, leather, or ornaments.

From the Sketchbook

I was going through one of my old sketchbooks and ran across some characters I'd drawn for Rowan's World.  And I found a few other random things so I thought I'd share.

The funny thing about sketchbooks is that they work a lot better when you use them.
