Spent an hour earlier today making this coloring sheets for the Halloween craft activities at the Cary Arts Center.
Also made some sample manga cartoon portraits of some characters from The Walking Dead.

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.
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.

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.
We had a very talented group of students in our last Ninjas & Dragons Summer art Camp at the Cary Arts Center, so just wanted to share some of their original pop-up card designs.
Notice the little ninja hanging on a rope at the top of the card.
A second ninja faces against a Water Dragon.
Penguin ice castle.
More Ninja versus Dragon scenarios.
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.
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.
