A digitally enhanced moleskine doodle

This is a doodle of mine that I did in my moleskine journal a couple weeks ago. After creating a lens about Doodle Art I thought I’d better walk my talk. After I scanned it I was messing around with gradient maps in Photoshop and really liked the way this turned out. The blueprint look has always been a favorite of mine.

No doubt this is someone’s guardian angel. I get the feeling she’s wearing some sort of angel business suit and is a kind of architect, either in terms of building or life.

I found Amanda while browsing through Flickr. She is an illustrator based in Edmonton, Alberta. Her style resonated with me. I asked her why she was drawn to angels (pun intended) and her reply was: “Angels make me think about being able to fly and I like that feeling so I draw them from time to time :)” Check out the illustrations gallery on her website for more.

A very common belief about angels is that they comfort us in our time of need.  In fact, for most of my life I thought that was all angels were for.  Somewhere along the line I picked up the idea of angels of mercy and that was all I knew.

Below is a link to an artist who found my heArt-a-Day blog and mentioned it on her site.  She works in digital art, both 2-D and 3-D.  I found the most amazing piece of angel art there.  It looks like a photograph.  But it isn’t.  I have Poser, the 3-D software she used, and I can’t get it to do anything.  She has obviously mastered it.

Her name is Dani Foster Herring and her image is called “In My Sorrow”.  It is a powerful depiction of an angel as comforter.

I just created this collage in Photoshop with clipart from Jack and Cat Curio’s blog, as well as photoshop brushes from Obsidian Dawn (Snow & Snowflakes) and BSilvia at Graphics-Illustrations (Grunge Stars, Magic Circles, Grunge Snowflakes, and Beads).

Last week I led my Intuitive Arts group on CoachCreativeSpace in an artistic exercise designed to open the lines of communication between the artist and their angels. Doing that ended up in my making this piece of art. I knew when I finished it that it was a direct message from the Angel of Winter, who I had never known about before. I also know that it’s the first of a set of angel oracle cards, which I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Call on the Angel of Winter when the short, dark days are getting you down. “Winter is the time to find the sun in your heart,” says the angel.
