Here are the next five doodles I’ve worked on for Art Every Day Month. I had been thinking about playing cards for some reason recently, and the spade/heart reflection came out of that. Then I was cleaning up the other day and found these two little dudes that I had made in highs school and college. They were cast out of bronze and I always liked them, but they had been packed away in a box with stuff I didn’t know what to do with. I’m glad I finally cleaned it up and found them. So I decided to do a sketch of one of them. The donut was just something I though would be fun to draw.
Then on Wednesday, I was looking through some of the other AEDM posts, and the woman who draws the zentangles (whose doodles are amazing) did one where she traced her hand. I thought that that would be an interesting image, so I decided to trace my fingers. I also saw some neat old Turkish book jackets (courtesy of a tweet by Koldo Barroso) and one had these graphic elements that reminded me of guitar picks, so I also traced a guitar pick in this doodle. I then did some different techniques to design around them. I liked it so much, I continued the idea yesterday. Only this time I traced my fingers a couple of times and then I used a teaspoon a few times in the image. I kept this one really black and white and graphic. Kind of stark. I like how it cam out also.
Just a few more days left for the challenge and then it’s the Twelve Days of Cuffmas!
