This was weird, a friend on WhatsApp is trying to come up with a logo for his name that starts with a B and he had drawn letter B’s holding a pencil, so I suggested a Bee carrying a pencil and writing the letter B…. And it fits with today’s #bandofsketchers prompt which is ‘carried’. I might just leave this or I might work on it?
Doodle of a flying fish… Yes its daft, I was just thinking about different ideas, air and water, crazy evolution. I don’t know what gave me the idea, where it came from. We are doing idea generation at college and we have to come up with new ideas, this was just one of them…. I need to do more, it’s only being playful…
It’s been raining here for days! From when I happened to say to a friend at the end of April, ‘we really need some rain, the farmers are worried they haven’t had enough for their crops’.
Be wary of what you ask for.
Now I remember the old rhyme we used to say when it was always raining ‘rain, rain, go away, come again another day’! It has poured down so hard today you can hear it thrumming on the kitchen roof and battering the windows… Enough! I want to go for a walk!
A giant, a genie and a fairy, (thus coukd be a joke). Pencil crayon drawings cut out to add to a collage I did for college. It came out quite well. I don’t have a decent photo of it so I can’t show you. It’s fun though coming up with characters and images from my imagination.
OK, this was a doodle for a project in one of the weeks at college. We had five words chosen for us and had to create characters and situations for them to be in.
Mine were: copper, glasses, bedroom, sarcastic and star.
I’d made a crown earlier in the year for a virtual panto I was in. It was made of card covered in holographic stars. I finished the work, but now we are doing a project on creating a map. I was looking back on previous work and found this. It’s a map I think? It’s not what I’m doing for the project but it made me think about what a map is.
I would define a map as:
Describing a place pictorially with images, or using sound to give directions.
It can be imagined or realistic. Using icons or symbols to describe objects within the map. Indications of pathways or roads, ways to navigate the area. And rules to show whether places are only accessible in a certain way. Exits and entrances. Also is the map two or three dimensional, how is that represented. Lots to think about.
Today I had a workshop on brainstorming. Coming up with ideas based on the word heuristic (first we had to read the definition) turns out it’s to do with finding out about things, collaboration, experimentation, investigation. Do we thought if sherlock Holmes, detecting things, doing research, being nosy. Bugging things, bookworms, learning, library, eyes, investigating the universe….
The doodle? That was drawn last night while I was trying to come up with ideas for an editorial brief… Its not anything to do with today, just something abstract.
Doodle in ArtRage oils. I haven’t used it for a while but I don’t want to forget how to use it. I might try and make it more interesting… As it is he looks like a slightly sad character. Trying to appeal to the caring side of me…..
based on my first ‘set’ drawing, this has changed into more of a landscape. Playing with sci-fi characters. I think I’m going slightly mad. I’m reading the brief and I’m supposed to draw again based on this…. I’m not sure what I will do next.
