Another monster! Why is it so fun to draw monsters? Probably because they can have horns and teeth and be whatever fun colors you want them to be :)

I think I've been neglecting the art of the nose... I usually draw my monsters without noses, but I think I need to experiment a little more with them. This little nose turned out pretty cute.

AAaaaaaaand yesterday was Bobby's and my 5 year wedding anniversary :D He took the day off of work, took me shopping, bought me a new dress and earrings, and then surprised me by driving me to the petshop to pick out a BUDGIE!!! I picked a lively little green bugger and named him Pipo :) He's settling in nicely, not quite tame yet, but I've been letting him perch on my finger while I sit real still. When he's a little less scared, I'll take some pics of him to show him off.

So I have the best husband ever. I hope everyone had as good a week as I did :) Happy Friday Night!

Cute monster and cute hubby! Congrats on the anniversary and your new family member. I can't wait to see pictures once he's ready :).

Oh don't mention budgies to me, we just had to move 80 of them in our house move! (My partner is a bird fanatic and going through a breeding budgies phase)

Happy belated anniversary :) I love your monster - his colours are gorgeous.

Oh congrats on the anniversary and the little Budgie. I had a blue, grey and white one when I was growing up. I love birds but I also love cats. So the compromise is Chickens outdoors and Kitties indoors. One day I would love a Sun Conure.

Congrats on your anniversary and congrats on getting a budgie! My husband and I have a cockatiel and a budgie, and they are the best birds ever. I have no doubt you'll enjoy your little guy for years. :)

Congrats on your anniversary, and welcome to Pipo! It won't be long before he starts talking and imitating you and then you won't be able to keep him quiet!
