Joining the T Gang over at
Bleubeard and Elizabeth's for T Tuesday-Coffee!
Also joining Art Journal Journey for their theme
"Inspired by," which for me is TOYS!
I challenged myself to draw toys
for the month of June in my Hobonichi.
There are lots of little toys in the toybox
from fast-food restaurants...and other
Donald and Goofy are of course
classic. I have no idea why they are
in these particular costumes. Maybe there
was a movie promotion at the time?
(The butterfly tag on the right is a flap
hiding a bit of journaling. Just the left
pair of wings are glued down)
I had to look up the dog character on the
right, and no idea what that little worm
Every once in a while, I still see a Care Bear.
Birthday Bear is one of the best. I think
there's a Grumpy Bear around here
somewhere too...maybe he'll make it
into the journal this month.
One of my son's favorite toys (and cartoons)
was G.I. Joe. It felt appropriate to draw him on
the day we went to meet a good friend's
veterans Honor Flight returning from D.C.
Several hundred people turned out to greet
the returning vets, and we hope it helped,
in a very small way, make up
for the homecoming that the
Viet Nam veterans didn't get originally.
Another toy (on the left) that I looked up on
Google. Bakugan toys and cartoons were a
popular Japanese genre. And who doesn't
love Fozzie Bear?! Corny jokes and all...
