EDM Challenge #163 Draw a deck of cards

I just am squeaking by on this one.
Not whole deck of cards, but just a drawing of two cards.
The lyrics are from "Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts".

EDM Challenge #93 Draw an egg carton, with or without eggs

Real Ukrainian egg dyers may poo poo this, and probably
rightfully so. They are absolute geniuses. But this was
fun. Not as meticulous as their work, but fun. The egg
carton lacks a lot in personality too, but hey! What can I say?
The lyrics are from the song "Highlands"

EDM Challenge #118 Draw some hair

This actually needs some touching up, so I may replace the image
after I've done that. But I want to post it today because I might
wind up putting it off way too long and I'm trying to stay active.
Also, I used a line from a song I have already used, which I hadn't
planned on doing. But I thought of another image I want to use for
the song I first thought of, and so I chose to use this one. I'll do the
other one later.
The lyrics are from "Tangled up in Blue"

EDM Challenge #38 Draw something related to Halloween

This one was done really quickly, just for the heck of it.
No great work, maybe not even good, but just in time for Halloween.
The lyrics are from "Changing of the Guards"

EDM Challenge #125 Draw a bird

My son thought this one should say "When your rooster crows
at the BEAK of dawn" which I thought was pretty funny, but decided
against. I may one day do a series of drawings with plays on words
like that but not this time.
The lyrics are from "Don't Think Twice, it's All Right".

EDM Challenge #235 Draw a butterfly

Well it started out good, I think. I thought it would fun to
do a play on words and draw Madame Butterfly instead of a
real butterfly. It came out too cutesy. And then...and this is
the big one...I forgot to allow for the handle of the umbrella.
What's it doing, coming out of her head? Sheesh! I should
have done it more like the Japanese woodcuts. In any case,
here she is.
The lyric is from "Tight Connection to my Heart"

EDM Challenge #4 Draw a cup

Honest to Pete this looks better in person. Anyway,
the cat was supposed to be black, but I kind of liked
the sketchy look he had as I was working on him so
I stopped.
The lyrics are from "One More Cup of Coffee"

Challenge #58 Draw a hat

Thought about doing a fancy hat with flowers and such.
Might still do it another time. But this time it's simpler.
The lyric is from "Black Diamond Bay".

Challenge #184 Draw a bench

Again with the lettering. I seem to do fine when I'm practicing,
but then I tighten up and blow it on the page. Ah well, back to the practice pads.
The lyric for this drawing is from the song "North Country Blues"

Challenge #10 Draw a hand

Not a great drawing of hands, but this is my favorite Dylan lyric
so I'm posting it anyway. It's from the song "What Good Am I?"

Challenge #33 Draw an eye

I'm not so happy with this one. I think I like
the drawing okay, but the lettering is ba-ad!
Ah well...I'll do better next time.
The lyrics are from "Dark Eyes"

Challenge #1 Draw a shoe

This lyric is from the song "Tangled Up in Blue"

Okay, it's a little different than the others.
I am trying to use a variety of styles...can't learn if I stay in a rut!
