A Drawing A Day 12.17.07

I'm not going to lie. Some days are worse than others. Some days I really don't feel like drawing and you can tell. ON these days I don't think I want to write too much, either.

Cupcake from Hannaford's. 45 minutes. Didn't even finish the icing. This cupcake isn't that attractive. Frosting is very crisco-y. Even still, I was tempted to eat it. I didn't. When I went in the kitchen, the Christmas cookies Arianna and I made were more appealing.

Cupcake. 15 minutes. Didn't even waste a half an hour on this one. Tried another experiment of using one of dad's old psych textbook pages. Chose this one because it talks about human error and since the first drawing of the day was full of human error, I thought it would be appropriate. (Side note: I have enjoyed using these books in my art. See this entry for another example.) Same cupcake from Hannaford's. Hate to waste food, but this one is going in the trash. Just like the drawing should.

I said before though, I am not only posting good drawings in these posts, so I guess today proved it with some really not-so-good ones.

I also have to figure out this scanning thing. It seems off. On one hand, things are looking better than they actually do, sort of, and on another, they really aren't accurate.

Hi, Bethany! Thanks for stopping by my blog. After reading about you in Arianna's blog for the last year and a half or so, it's fun to finally see where you "live" in blogland. I love the art you've posted here--it all looks very lively. And those cupcakes (even the Hannaford ones, Crisco icing and all) look delicious.
