The Human's Art Endeavors

The Menagerie Mom here. Some of you may have seen my art I've shared here on our blog. I've always liked to dabble in drawing and other various arts and crafts, very often with animals as the subject matter (of course!). So, just in case anyone is interested in perusing it all together, I thought I'd create a page where I can compile my animal artwork, much of which has been or will be shared in various blog posts.

I also have started selling my drawings and mixed media art online, and each month a portion of proceeds from all purchases will go to a different animal rescue group or shelter. I sell instant downloads as well as prints of my drawings at my store called DoodleDownloads, and I sell my original mixed media art at TrashToTreasuresArt. And, if you have any rescues or shelters you'd like to nominate for me to give proceeds to, please don't hesitate to mention it! Throughout the year I'd like to donate to a variety of organizations that work so selflessly to protect animals in need!

Now, without further ado, I will begin posting my animal art. You've been forewarned.

End of art. More words.

A sort of fun fact: I don't keep a whole lot of true art supplies on hand. This is because I like to keep my art as simple and humble as possible. I have a couple of sketchbooks as well as a couple sets of art pencils, art pens, and ink pads, but past that I try not to stock up on too many actual art supplies. This is also why most of my drawings are created on index cards, and sometimes even scratch paper. I try to keep the same rule when it comes to my mixed media art, which is why I create most of those pieces out of recycled cardboard, old book pages, and other recycled goods. This not only saves me money, but also storage space, not to mention that recycling/upcycling isn't all that bad for the environment.

Last but not least, if you have anything you'd like to see me draw (especially animal related!), please just let me know in a comment. I love getting new drawing ideas, and I also love a good challenge every once in a while.

  2. Mario's M here: Your art work is adorable, and you do a great job with it. My husband dabbles in oils (or did before his Parkinson's became too bad to draw anymore). You are so right about supplies being costly. Now we are in a situation of what will we do with a house full of framed pictures when we have to move - which is in the very near future. He has sold a few pieces, but there are still many many more to go.
