Because of my inability to draw straight and do perspective properly, coupled with my poor ability to draw cars or anything mechanical, I did a pencil sketch first to make sure I got the dimensions as best as I could. But I hate doing pencil drawings first. I mean I like that I can do a more precise drawing, but after I go over it in pen, whenever I erase the pencil marks, it picks up a lot of the ink. This happens no matter what pen or ink I'm using and is such a pain! I then have to go over all the lines again which is just creating another opportunity to mess up. Does anyone have any advice on how to prevent this? Maybe it's the eraser I'm using? I have one of those gray kneaded erasers. I like the spontaneous looseness of just starting with pen and seeing how it goes, but it sucks when I mess up one part of it and have to start over.
Anyways, time to think of the next pug job. Hmm.....

I think I want to do a more polished and larger version of this. Unfortunately I am incapable of drawing straight even with a ruler but I'm hoping a ruler and pre-pencil work will at least help keep the drawing somewhat straight!
TGIF - Have a great weekend!

I came up with my blog name because "bah!" has always been my favorite thing to write in an email, im, or text when I'm feeling cranky, frustrated or disgruntled. So in honor of this crappy week that just won't end I say BAH HUMPUG!

I started doodling after I did the koala drawing and ended up doing another one that fit the heights theme. Poor lil pug on top is a little scared of heights - see his uncurled tail?

I finally saw the Hunger Games movie and wanted to do a drawing for it, pug style of course. I did a drawing for Hunger Games a while ago and was going to post that, but when I was looking at it recently it now looks so old and outdated!

Anyways, wouldn't you much rather find a warm, furry, fat pug in a head of cabbage instead of a doll?!

True story: On my first car I had a license plate frame that said "Hug a Pug." I think it was a gift from my family but I can't remember. Anyways that's how I rolled all through high school. Oooh yeeeeah.

Oh and because this is also for this week's Illustration Friday theme (vocal), I added some pug sound effects (which interestingly is probably very similar to the noises pigs make).

Here's the full pug alphabet! I really enjoyed doing this series - it was a lot of fun! One day I might clean this up and do a neater and more consistent job of all the drawings and lettering. I'm also still trying to find the right mix of scanning and editing. So let's go through the pug alphabet! (Update: I have a new version of the pug alphabet here and prints and other products with it are available at my Zazzle store here)
And here's the pug letters with the little rhyme.
