She makes some of the greatest art. It totally inspires me. She doesn't worry about scale, or whether her people have arms and legs. If they are rolling skating, they have legs, because the skates have to fit on something, but arms are optional. The arms don't tell the story like the feet do. Makes perfect sense!
So, for the QB5's (see their blogs in my side bar) current swap (stitchery) I decided to go decidedly primative and took a cue from Rebecca. This is the sign-in book I designed with Rebecca's help. She drew the characters, and I embellished with stitchery.
The thing is, that I am having such a great time stitching on paper, that I am not getting to my piece of linen very quickly. I may be onto something, but the swap can't be held up for my personal experiments.
It's something to pursue later.
And I have a very long "to do" list.
So here is my parting advice... in a creative rut? Go see what your kids or grandkids have on their drawing boards.
Only use arms or legs when they are necessary for the story you're telling, and put a smile on everyone's face.
Also, don't do a lot of sketching.
