Here is my drawing for this week’s Illustration Friday challenge. The word of the week was “whimsical”.
This sketch – entitled “How to Survive the Flood” – was inspired by the image in which Winnie the Pooh shelters on a tree branch with all his honey pots for company.
I liked this drawing too.
Aaah! This week I scanned my drawing too late to make it onto the Illustration Friday website. But that’s no reason not to share it here. So voilà my interpretation of the word “bouquet”.
I was inspired by a favorite movie, You’ve Got Mail. In this delicious classic, Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) speaks of bringing Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) “bouquets of sharpened pencils“. I find that image beautiful (I’m the kind of person who could spend half an hour blithely buried in the office supplies aisle).
Below are some sketches.
And here is my final sketch.
Illustration Friday: Bouquet of Sharpened Pencils.
This week’s Illustration Friday prompt is “Star”. Here is my contribution — I’m early this week!
Every week, Illustration Friday runs a fun challenge: they propose a word, and everyone sends in their illustration. Here is my contribution to this week’s prompt: INK.
“Ink”. (Ink and pencil).
Below are some of my exploratory sketches.
A first version.
Today, I also baked Early Grey cupcakes (yum), took a vibrant, colorful autumnal walk and reminisced about yesterday’s Great British Bake Off.
Here is my drawing for this week’s Illustration Friday challenge. The word to illustrate was “Mermaid”.
