Rick-rolled! 7

0 Replies

While this is *not* my current state of mind, there have been some things over the past few months that have bothered me a great deal. 


To those irritants - people, events, circumstances - the clear and graphic message on the rickshaw above is dedicated to you. Cheers!

Time to get creative!

3 Replies

There was a time when I took the trouble to 'make' stuff like simple greeting cards and bookmarks or recycle things. Like the one time I made a funky pen stand out of half a coconut shell. Or little boxes out of old greeting cards (really easy to make). Over time, being busy or lazy stopped the creative juices from flowing. 

So, I've been thinking of reviving the arty-crafty side of me. Over the past few days, I made little birthday greetings on plain paper inked with a black marker for colleagues. These could be pinned to the softboard, so they weren't made like typical cards. I can't draw to save my life, so stick figures work for me. Also, I'm quite fond of doing the block lettering. [Psst, it forgives uneven writing.] :-)

Today, I made the following greeting for a colleague from a small sheet of paper, a black marker and colour pencils.

The basic sketch done in pencil first, then outlined with a fine tip marker.

Final look created using regular colour pencils.
Will try and post some ideas often. As always, feedback is welcome.
