Benjamin and Balloo and so humid

It's so incredible humid here today :/ Even if you sit still and draw it's still too hot. They say we will get colder weather now and less humid - yay for that. Means I can get back to running without dying of heat too, I am so exited to continue where I left.

I started a Gothic Heart Doll Pinup drawing yesterday. I don't know what it is but I have fire in my pencils these days. It feels good. I feel into everything these days, colours, charcoals, pastel... wish I could do it all at once =)
I also want to decorate everything here - definitely means it's spring for me.

Benjamin and Balloo

I did this drawing of my brother some weeks back.
The drawing is special to me as it's of my little brother Benjamin and his Jack Russell, Balloo. It shows a different side that not too many see of my brother, the softer side.

To me he has always been this this cute little baby boy and now he is 17 and I sometimes wonder where time went...
This is a dedication to him, for being so caring, sweet and lots of fun to be around.

I took a photo of him and Balloo late at night some months ago with my phone. It turned out all grainy but I loved the pose and mood so much I wanted to do a drawing of it and give it to him.

It's done with charcoal and is 21x29.7cm (8x11")

great you feel this good!
i have to say that i loved this drawing, a lot! it´s so beautiful this relationship and you portrayed it so well! i loved the eye of the little dog and the little paw, the way he seems to hold the dog as if he was saying "don´t leave me", it´s very beautiful! one of your best pieces. i´ve said it once and i´ll say it again, you rock with charcoal, don´t ever leave this medium! i love dogs so i just had to say all that, sorry... :)
