Origami Puppets based on the Daruma model

Origami Pikachu
With Pokemon being so popular, we modified the Daruma origami kit to make this Pikachu model. We used 12" X 12" scrapbook paper to fold the basic body and added additional features and limbs that were secured with hot glue or Yes paste.
Puppets based on Daruma Origami model
The project is flexible enough to customize other characters and animal puppets. Thus each student can exercise their creativity and make their own unique creations.

Gallery of Cartoon Portraits from Birthday Party

Birthday Cartoon Portraits
Had the pleasure of drawing some ninja and princess cartoon portraits for a TMNT-themed birthday party held at the Kids Together Park this past weekend. Most boys wanted to be either a ninja or a dragon knight. The girls went with Harry Potter or Disney Princesses requests.

 It took just a little over an hour to draw fourteen sketches with my trusty Sakura Pigma Sensei 06 pen.

New surprising Art Support: Tae Kwon Do Breaking Boards

Wood board color drawings
Thanks to a fellow instructor at the Art Center, we got an ample supply of wooden boards that can be used for drawing and painting.
Wood board color drawings
They come in odd sizes since they are used breaking boards from Martial Arts classes and demonstrations. They just needed a bit of sanding on the rough edges.

Colors bleed a bit, but that just simply adds to its "artsy" look.
