About crayonsencore

I am teaching myself how to do illustrations for the stories that I want to tell. I started blogging in 2004, using crayons. I then moved to colored pencils, and now am experimenting with watercolors.

    Caroline, this turned out beautifully! The colors, the story behind it…so great! Some of my favorite drawings are: you feeling energized and the one of you sitting on the bed the next morning. But really, I love all of them!

    Hello Caroline, this one is brilliant, believe me if there’s one thing that gets you feeling better and gets you energised its yoga. In time with regular practise of yoga any old dog will be amazed at the degree of flexibility one can achieve. This old dog needs to get back to yoga too.

  3. How fun! I can so relate! I love your story with illustration!

  4. Anne says:

    You’re making me think twice about taking up yoga! Seriously though, I just need to decide which yoga is right for me! Love the drawings…much fun!

    I was laughing and smiling the whole time I saw the story. I especially loved the first picture about feeling ‘blobby.’ I often feel just the same way.

  6. Becky says:

    I can definitely relate to this story–I loved the illustrations and colors that you used! My sister took me to her yoga class when I was visiting her in California, and I thought I was going to die! I may try again some day when I’m feeling more flexible (???).

    Smiles, guffaws, deep belly laughs—–what a charming story! Thanks for the end of the day cheer.

  8. Deborah Carr says:

    I’m so delighted you are back. Having suffered the same fate with my first yoga class, this was priceless.

    Absolutely brilliant!! Had a good gaffaw to start my morning (and after a resolution session exercise cd too). Too funny!

    CB – this is fantastic. The story made me smile and the drawings are wonderful. You must have really been working on anatomy because the proportions shift so much in the poses but you hit it spot on. There are so many little details to appreciate…the rumpled colors of the bed, all the different students, etc. I love the “energized” frame too. Well done!

    • MB, thank you for all of your feedback. I’m happy that you understood how I delved into anatomy — only to discover that my intuitive take was better. Anyway, your comments mean a lot to me. Grazie!

    Still smiling and chuckling. Been there, done that, felt just that way afterwards. What unnoticed bliss it was when body parts didn’t talk back!

    This is the funny and all too real take on life in wonderful colors and great pictures that I’ve missed. Welcome back!

    I loved seeing in your trial sketches how you considered showing the giant coffee cup, then decided to drop it in the final version. I so enjoy your whimsy when you play fantastically with scale and was looking forward to seeing you employ that device again, but your decision makes total sense to me — the giant cup would steal focus from the crawling.

    Your artblog makes me smile from ear to ear.

  14. Welcome back. You’ve been missed! Your new palette is lovely. As is the template and design. And the drawings. Re. the yoga pain: I seriously questioned my sanity when I started running last July. Everything, but everything, hurt for a month. And then suddenly it didn’t. Well, a little, but not to the point where I was crawling up stairs. Keep it up, and know your body will adjust and be glad. Eventually. And I hope the blog is a joy, not a drudge, because it is a joy to read.

    I am starting back at Yoga (after more than 10 years) on Monday. Can you give me a little more information about your last pose as I am sure that I will feeling like that…he hee!
