Chrysalis Confusion

Corgi Pup is watching butterflies emerge! that a butterfly?....

I dunno about where you live but there's been piles of cicadas where I am and they only just now slowed down. We were literally tripping over them!


Cold? Stay Inside and Color!

It’s a new year with cold January weather! My area has recently had super-cold weather with wind chills that were dangerous. Anytime it gets event slightly cold, I want to stay inside with a warm drink and a book. Or crochet, like Fluff Pup is doing in this month’s first coloring page! TeaCup Pup and Corgi Pup are too impatient to wait for the blanket to be finished before they start to use it though.

Fluff Pup has to make the blanket bigger if any other pups decide to crawl under before it’s done!

We also sorta had snow? But not as much to build a big snowman with…which is why the other coloring pages features all the pups chipping in to build a snowman! All the pups are lending a paw, although maybe Pug Pup needs to be informed the carrot is meant to stay on the snowman face instead of being eaten?

It’s a team effort to build this snowman!

I roughed out both of these coloring page ideas in a tiny sketchbook I’ve started to leave in my bag when I go out, in case I end up with idle time and get a good drawing idea. I snapped a picture of the page and ported over the sketches to help with laying out the illustrations. You can see this happening in the first few seconds of this month’s Time Lapse as I move around chunks of sketch references while drawing! Be sure to grab these and all sorts of other coloring pages to fill your time while you stay safe and warm!

Wintery Holiday Coloring!

Time for another month’s edition of coloring pages! It’s cold and I don’t have enough big sweaters! Or maybe I do but I just still feel cold. Corgi Pup has the same feelings as me, which is why drawing her in so many layers made perfect sense! This coloring page is based on one of my favorite comics that I’ve drawn.

Corgi Pup feels so cozy when she has on so many layers in winter!

The Space Pups recent appearance in the Mech Mishap storyline made me think about how they would celebrate Christmas and decorating for it. Their planet doesn’t really have pine trees though…so maybe they’d decorate a small rocket ship instead? Since they have jet packs, they don’t have any trouble decorating up to the top or adding a space-themed topper!

The Space Pups take such care in decorating their Christmas Rocket!

For this month’s timelapse, here’s Corgi Pup getting all layered up! As always, you can find these and other stacks of coloring pages to keep you occupied in cozy sweaters over in the Coloring Pages section.

Fall Harvest Coloring Pages

I’m still getting pumpkin everything while I still can (including pumpkin scones). During some of our fall-themed activities, we visited a local farmer’s market that had so so so SO many gourds. Gourds are pretty weird looking, which made them excellent fodder for a new Princess Pups coloring page! Corgi Pup is trying to balance a wee pumpkin on her nose while Scruffy Pup and TeaCup pup examine other gourds!

Goosebump gourds, long gourds, small gourds…

The farmer’s market also had all sorts of snacks, including the delightful candy apples! I thought it only right that Fluff Pup and Pug Pup got to enjoy candy apples on the other coloring page. Pug Pup has even been known to make candy apples in the past…

Extra sprinkles on all candy apples, please!

You can find these and other fall and non-fall related coloring pages over in the coloring pages section! For this month’s time lapse, here’s the many directions that the gourds coloring page took! The cinderella pumpking that Corgi Pup is balancing on had to be just the right size.

Pumpkin Coloring Pals!

It’s October and pumpkins galore! We’ve got our piles of Halloween decorations out and I’ve already had too many pumpkin scones (and intend to have more). This month for my coloring pages, I’ve got two pumpkiny, Jack-o’-lantern themed coloring pages for you to enjoy while drinking your favorite autumn drink.

In the first page, Teacup Pup is putting the finishing touches on her Jack-o’-lantern, which is bigger than she is! She’s just gotta figure out how to get that candle inside before she tumbles off…

For this month’s other page, I drew Jack-o’-lantern versions of all the pups! This one was a bit of a challenge but a lot of fun. I got a bit creative for the pups with fluffy ears and used vines and leaves as part of their design! And Corgi Pup is a lumpy gourd to get closer to her head shape.

Look at all the Pup-kins!

Since the pups as Halloween decorations was so different, it’s this month’s timelapse! I made several changes on the fly when I was inking it, see if you can spot them. 🙂 Be sure to check the Coloring Pages section for these pages plus other Halloweenie coloring pages from Halloweens past!
