December is all Holiday!

We have been focusing on Christmas trees and Santa's this month, More holiday stuff 
to come but here is the first half of the month. It's amazing to see all of our interpretations 
of the same subject come out so differently! The toy Santa, the playful Santa, the drinking,
depressed Santa and old grandfather man Santa... pretty fun.

Thanksgiving Turkeys

This week's project was, fittingly, to draw a Turkey. Only two out of the four of us were celebrating (with Monika being a London-based Swede, and Lyndy based in Melbourne ) but all four of us enjoyed the project. We all agree that turkeys are kind of weird looking creatures...

Storm in a tea cup

This week we decided to draw cups. So...Put the kettle on, make a cuppa and catch that moment of calm when its you, your tea and the world.
I'm more of a coffee girl though.
Do you know us well enough yet to guess who drew which cup?

Friday Drawing: Apple

Our first Cloverly joint project. We will all draw 
1 item a week and share the results. First up: The Apple!
It's amazing to see how 4 interpretations of an apple can
be so different!

Zombie Apocalypse in Hampstead and an early Valentine

Hi there. It's a bright November Autumn day here in London. I believe I am the only Clover leaf in the Cloverly Art Collective awake right now as it's very early in America where Jen and Kristen live and very late over in Australia which is the home of Lyndy. 
Yesterday I spent in hospital with my son having his broken arm get a new plaster cast. We spent the time there mostly thinking of ways to escape/defend ourselves if the Royal Free Hospital suddenly would get invaded by Zombies.
And then I drew 7 valentines cards that'll be in the shops in February. I can't reveal them to you yet but below is a favourite quote of mine (well I didn't say/write it...Henry Kissinger did) which is kind of Valentine-ish.
Speak to you all soon

Love Mon

Kristen Balouch

Hi, I'm Kristen. I have been busy this fall with a big move.

I moved my home and studio at the same time. I'm a little sad to say good bye to my
sweet home of 17 years, but I'm excited to say hello to my teeny tiny apartment in
Brooklyn and to start Cloverly Art Collective...this new adventure with these great
artistis: Jenn, Lyndy, and Monika!

Last night I dreamed that I was all settled in.... but I woke up to find that I still have some unpacking to do....
