Exactly. What shall I call this post? Or now, it has become, “I shall call this post What?” I have hamsters living in my head this week, really, I do! I am doing (or trying to do), so many different things all converging together, that I might just be losing the plot(s)…

I love spreading colour around on paper. I love overstamping that color and/or doodling on it. I love using the white pen to make highlights… I love creating a character and now that I am sketching aswell, I am drawing characters too! I know, right? Can you believe it? Me, drawing a Zetti-person (I say person, because I can’t decide if he/she is a boy or a girl…) – just sayin’!


So, whilst I was waiting in the Test Centre for Nick today, I drew this Zetti, now known as What?  It’s rather amazing to me and I also wrote alongside it, “It’s very surprising what you can draw when you give your imagination free rein + forget the rules…” You see, I sort of get the zetti, but I never fully embraced it before. Now I think I do get it, if only for this one single character, What?

This month’s theme for Sketchbook Challenge is “Highly Prized”. I can now address this issue because this spread represents all the arty things that I cherish:

I cherish all the wonderful people who have influenced and inspired me, read my blog and encouraged my artistic endeavours. I prize very highly all that I have learnt and continue to learn because I am an art blogger. You are all very special to me and when people ask me who my friends are, I think first of those of you who daily enrich my life – fellow-bloggers and artists – we have so much in common and aspire to inspire and nurture. That’s why I continue to blog and comment and join in with challenges, swaps, groups, etc. And that’s what I prize, very highly… that part of my life that is just for me! 😉

  1. Love your zetti boy/girl, Rosie. Great piece!

  2. Fantastic Rosie- love these artful creative pages!

  3. Zettis are such fun to draw and collage! But then it’s that slightly twisted, slightly dark streak in Tracy and Teesha Moore that I find so appealing in their artwork. Your Zetti has an elfin quality to it. I love the turned up toes, and is that a cuppa tea? You might want to upload this to Nancy Baumiller’s “pointy hats and wings” flickr group, also! I flickr mailed you with an invite, just in case you’re not already a member of the group! XOXO

  4. Thanks for the smile on my face and for the wonderful colours.

  5. What a cutie!! I’ve been a big fan of zetti art for a while, haven’t braved it yet. The Art Journal will be a wonderful place to experiment.
