Playing with my Food

Tonight, after being inspired by just how beautiful a good sardine is, I decided to try drawing my food.  I've seen more and more people starting to sketch what they eat, or don't eat, if they're using their doodles as propoganda...but I haven't really dabbled much into sketching edibles.  So, tonight I gave it a whirl.  There's nothing better than a well prepared sardine, or any fish, for that matter. When I bust any of them open in my house, however, I'm promptly excused to the back of the house, or banned from using the kitchen till everyone is gone since the Mrs. doesn't care for the smell.  Her loss, my gain. Here's pre and post the addition of color to the drawing:

The Donald

So, I'm not going to add my voice to the myriads of pundits that pontificate on politics day in and day out.  There is plenty of that to be found with a few key-strokes here and there.  However, I did take some time today to sketch out some caricatures, like back I did a few years ago.  I tried to get the Orange OOMPA LOOMPA like color that we have seen from the Donald on so many of the debates, but don't know if I succeeded.

A Little Butterfly for my Spouse

The other day, Cheristy said, "when are you going to do something that I like?"  So, hoping to avoid the walk of shame, I asked her what she wanted.  She said a yellow butterfly on a pink or red flower.  So, I knocked this out this weekend.  However, it looks like I'll be going back to the drawing board, because as I showed her the finished product she said, "that's nice, but I'm not so sure about the purple, we don't have any purple in the house to match it with."  So, I have a few options.  1. I can tell her I used purple to convey how calm and peaceful she makes me feel when she's around, (and hear her ask me what I've been drinking.) or 2. Crank up the photoshop. 3. Head over to Sherwin Williams to repaint the den as colorful as a bad Prince movie from the 80's. Oh well, it was a good attempt.
