When was the last time you picked up a crayon?
The huckleberry in this sketch was inspired after reading a post by Patchious Patch, who sparked my interest once more in crayons with this fun post about melting colors to use in art called A Weekend Amuse – Melting Colors. I only had four colors to work with, but was able to get a somewhat “huckleberry-esque” hue.
The internet can be quite a funny thing, and I have been reflecting a bit lately on the progression of my blog as well as a human being. In my daily life, I am a bit of a shy person, but I have really appreciated how blogging has allowed me to connect with people like Patch, who jump start my creativity. I love how I can interact and swap perspectives with people from far reaching parts of our globe, as well as those who are quite near.
This is a quick lettering exercise I did for my Draw It Like It’s Hot sketching class, taught by Koosje Koene. If you don’t know about Sketchbook Skool yet, you should definitely check it out (it is secret one of the biggest driving factors to maintaining my sketching habit the last few years!).
Happy Friday, folks! May it be an inspired one.
