About Tabitha Raincloud

I used to draw all the time... then there was a very long gap till I acquired a Draw Something addiction that began in March 2012 which threw me into the world of digital drawing. I now mainly use a drawing app called Sketch Club and have recently created a website for a drawing game my friend and I have invented called Monkey Side Bars. Monkey Side Bars is a twice-a-week (for now a once-a-week) drawing game where you are challenged to a piece of art on a specific theme. Players take turns selecting the theme for each round. On the reveal date for each round, we co-ordinate a mass posting to Instagram simultaneously across the globe. The game is open to all who wish to participate. We welcome all levels of skill from beginners to hobbyists to professionals. All you need is a creative mind, a sense of humor, and a willingness to try. You might have heard it through the ape vine… This game will have you hooked on the monkey bars. Like a monkey likes a banana… it has that appeal. Come monkey around with us and see what all the fuss is about.

Monkeysidebars Words Challenge my Abstract Brain

Julie – Chicago Abstract Painter – the best abstract artist I know.

The creations are so well executed; it sings every time… even if abstract is not for you there is always something special in Julie’s work that makes them all timeless pieces of art. This one in particular was for Wednesday, November 27 for the word EBULLITION selected by Kerilyn.

Making art by Julie Richman, Chicago Abstract Painter

Monkeysidebars words, selected by members, are announced in time for  Wednesday and Sunday posting.  My problem is that although  the words may have a particular and useful definition, the visual interpretation can be difficult for me.  My intent is to transform visual terms into an abstract image that will suggest the meaning of a word.  This image is my interpretation of the word “Ebullition.” By drawing a sense of explosive force I think I did do that. But it is up to the viewer to decide whether or not I achieved that goal. Today the word is “Herald” and it can mean an announcement or a standard bearer at an event.  Or portents of things to come or about to happen.  For example Daffodils are a herald of Spring.

“RRRRRAAAHHHHH! AAAARRRRRRRR!” ~ Someone feeling a little delicate.

Feelings are the most delicate things in life, never hurt them when anyone truly shows them to you, because a great saying says… today it’s me… tomorrow it’s you…

Thank you for your support and compliance on this delicate matter.


It’s a drawing that needs addressing.  May I suggest a splatter of extra virgin olive oil or possibly just simple a delicate vinaigrette? Matter of taste really.

If you would like your drawing to be a delicate draw try using a feather pen if you can.  Albus Dumbledore used one in Harry Potter that contains magical powers.  You just need to hold the pen with your right or left hand and say the magic word.  Choose your own feather and note that after every two days, you need to change the feathers because it will wear off, thus the magical ability will be gone and your drawings will get worse.

Grab some delicacies here for reference – gently does it

Set your machines to a delicate cycle of draws for Sunday, December 8.


Stray 2 It looks like we picked the wrong week to give up Sci-fi.

Monkey’s will be venting Science Fiction drawings for Sunday November 3rd – word supplied by Simian Stray.

In Draw Something’s historical past Stray has been an avid artist who has posted many Sci-Fi smithereens to Instagram and Facebook’s timeline.

Right here right now is an assortment of Stray’s Sci-Fi illustrations; some monkeys will be familiar with Simian Stray’s work and remember the wonderful mash-ups and incredible sketches we have seen so far.

Get lost in the year 2525 as you scan and relish.
