EDM Challenge #52 ~ Draw a dog

The actual lyrics have a lot more meaning than they appear to, but for this drawing they are more simple and straightforward. I am not happy with the folds in the pants, but I decided to just move on.
The lyrics are from "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall".

EDM Challenge #292 ~ Draw a night scene

One of my favorite lines. I have had a picture stuck in my head about this one for decades. This one isn't as good as the one in my head but it's close!
The lyrics are from "Mr. Tambourine Man". If you're having a bit if trouble reading them they are "Just to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free."

EDM Challenge #79 ~~ Draw an ear

A song I'll bet most folks know. And surely the first one I ever heard that was written by Bob Dylan.
The lyrics are from "Blowin' in the Wind"

EDM Challenge #249 ~ Draw a coffee pot

Another one from the imagination. Trying to get a semi-tropical hotel feeling I guess. In any case, here he is! I have named him Henri...pronounced on-ree!
The lyrics are from "On a Night Like This"

EDM Challenge #30 Draw a chair

Just a plain old simple chair. I really did think about doing a fancy one...still might. But I went simple on this so what can I say? I always liked drawings that show that black showing around each item. So that's what I did. Now you may ask why that type of chair is sitting on sand. Good question. I have no idea! :o)
The lyrics are from the song "Don't Fall Apart on Me Tonight".

EDM Challenge #86 Draw a sign

I couldn't decide whether to do a sign or a bottle of water (challenge 297) so I did both. The line around the stop sign looks pink on here. I'll have to fix that in the book.
The lyrics are from the song "Mozambique"

EDM Challenge #299 Draw a table

Again, this is from my imagination which is something I was working on avoiding. It's a bad habit I have so mostly I have not done it in this moleskine. Now I notice that I'm sliding back into that habit again. The next one will be from a reference. Honest.
The lyrics are from the song "Cat's in the Well".

EDM Challenge #22 Draw a piece of clothing

Well, not much to say. Completely from the imagination, but inspired by a magazine picture I saw of some children. The poses were similar but they were entirely differemt from these.
The lyrics are from the song "One of us Must Know (Sooner or Later)".

EDM Challenge 28 Draw an appliance

For those of you who are too young, this is a wringer washing machine. Probably from the 30s or so.
The lyrics are from the song "I Shall Be Free No.10"

EDM Challenge 185 ~~ Draw a cat

I hope you can see this. Sometimes it's hard to see animals
when they're seen from an odd viewpoint. These are two of
my late cats. Kittyboy is the white and black one on the left.
Beany is the black one on the right. I took this picture one day,
laughing because Kittyboy hated Beany and wanted no part of him.
This never stopped Beany from trying to be Kittyboy's friend.
The day I took the picture, they were both sleeping. I came in,
Beany woke up, but clearly didn't want to move because (in my
opinion) he knew if he did Kittyboy would wake up and punch him.
So all he moved was his eyeball, to look at me. Kittyboy died
eleven years ago (13 yrs. old). Beany died three years ago
(18 yrs. old). But this picture has made me laugh for all those years.
The lyrics are from the song "Love is Just a Four Letter Word".
They're a little hard to read here, so here they are:

"Outside a rambling storefront window cats meowed till the break of day."

EDM Challenge 286 Draw a Shirt

This scanned a teeny bit crooked I think.
It looks straight in the book. Hmmm...
That's one of those old boats called a Sampan
that he's building just in case you were wondering.
The lyrics are from the song "Union Sundown"

EDM Challenge #239 Draw something that scares you

I never do this. NEVER. But there I was in the doctor's office.
And there IT was. All I had was my paint marker. And a pencil.
So I did it. I colored it in later.
And yes, it was a weird scale...not symmetrical. But then neither am I. :o)
The lyrics are from the song "Jet Pilot"

EDM Challenge #136 Draw a living thing

This is a Mongolian horse. They have short legs and are kind
of stocky. They sometimes have fancy embroidered saddles.
The lyrics are from the song "Isis".

EDM Challenge # 176 Draw Something Summer

Ten months. TEN months since I've been here. But I'm working on a couple of things. I am a bit rusty. But here is my first go after all this time.
The lyrics are from the song "Sara". They're a little hard to read.
They are:
I can still see them playing with their pails in the sand.
They run to the water, their buckets to fill.
I can still see the shells falling out of their hands,
As they follow each other in back of the hill.
