Draw Something

Day 8: Favourite Animated Character

Growing up watching Disney cartoons, I wanted to be Rapunzel. It must have been the endless tresses of hair, plus living on your own in a tower wouldn’t be so bad, you could read books and paint and draw… So for this challenge, with a little inspiration from a Disney Princess pose (Glen Keane & Disney), http://www.pinterest.com/pin/257760778647162265/ I sketched my own version of myself as a Rapunzel. Nothing better after a pretty ordinary day at work than to see yourself in princess mode.

Day 4: My Favourite Place

The mountains are grand aren’t they? Green and verdant and refreshing… in a mountain spring sorta way. And on a rainy day they oh so much more beautiful.

Ok, so I’ve taken a bit of creative license here but as I’m a graphic designer by trade, I figured type is allowed. This piece is inspired by an artwork on Pinterest that I have liked for ages, and created with one of my favourite places in mind, the Blue Mountains, Australia. I hope it brings an energising breath of fresh mountain air to your day!

Thanks for tuning in! More artwork tomorrow with the theme ‘My Best Friend’.

Day 3: My Favourite Food

I am pretty partial to lollies. I have been known to go through a bag in one sitting, especially when working. There are so many other foods that would be good to draw but something about the bright artificial colours of lollies made me want to create this quick sketch with heightened colours. You can almost smell the sugar!
