Roll Up, Roll Up….

Art it Up.  This is a weekly meme hosted by Tabitha over at Not Yet Read.  The idea being to see if you can come up with some inspiration for a little sketch or doodle from your last week’s reading or just anything else in general. this week I’ve reviewed The Just City by Jo Walton – which is all about a city that aims to be just and also I’ve read Karina Cooper’s Tempered (No.4 of the St Croix Chronicles review to follow – 1, 2 and 3 here).  If you’ve read any of the St Croix books you’ll understand my circus ‘big top’.  For the Just City I went for the Statue of Justice – but I’ve changed it and tipped the scales!  Both very good reads.  Sketches – well, a bit ropey but strangely I enjoy having a scribble.  Now, check out Not Yet Read for all the goodies!

    I just won a copy of Tempered, so I’m very curious to start that series. Love your circus drawing!

      I’m enjoying it – Tempered is the 4th, have you read the others?? It’s an unusual series but enjoyable. I don’t know whether I wouldn’t call if PNR – although there’s more to it if you know what I mean!

    Oh I love that circus – I have the hardest times trying to draw circus tents I always get the perspective completely wrong!

      Haha, you jest for sure! You can certainly draw perspective – on anything. I love your doodles!

    I didn’t know you could draw! And so well! I’m a little envious right now. 🙂

    I’ve nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. Congrats!

      Well, I scribble or doodle really – I don’t consider myself an artist – but thanks!
      And thanks for the nomination – that’s really thoughtful of you!

    Wow, that is amazing. I particularly love the shading you did at the entrance of the circus tent. I’m pretty awful at the simple stuff. c: Great post!

      Aw, thanks! I’m a pretty simple sketcher but they’re just quick and easy and it’s just a bit of fun!
