Continuing the 61 day creative
habit challenge - ICAD.
Index-Card-a-Day art: watercolor or
acrylic backgrounds, collage with painted papers,
a little 'clip art', ink drawings, text, a map piece.
There might be some watercolor pencil in there too...
you get the idea, lots of scraps and itty-bits!
Mixed media on index cards.
This was my favorite of the group...the
combination of colors, and the suggestion
of blue waves...
This month the Hobonichi challenge is candy
and snacks from around the world. It's been
a fun challenge learning about each one,
and trying to represent their packaging. The
Japanese Umaibo was quite unique. Each
flavor of the snack had a different design.
I've noticed the prominent use of bright primary
colors, especially red. Eye catching is the name
of the game! (Click on any image to enlarge.)
I read an American's review of the Milk Tablets
from Thailand. Apparently not a taste that he
found great. But I love that happy cow design!
And of course, most Americans are familiar
with Sixlets. Similar to M &Ms, but smaller.
I like the letterstyle that's a little wonky.
This close-up reveals the imperfections,
(a little too much!) of drawing in a tiny journal.
I find that I can't see to draw tiny and accurately
that well any more. sigh. Suggestion of a
thing will have to do...
My journal pages usually have a
morning coffee doodle, so that 'qualifies' to
join Elizabeth for T Tuesday.
There are usually some delicious looking
photos of appetizing food on the participants blogs.
Did you spot my doodle of the sweet roll?
Stop by for a cup of something and a chat.
