Spectacular

Spectacular

The first thing I thought of when Michelle posted “spectacle” was the circus!  I’ve also been watching a lot of videos of this woman making “art journals”  and I was itching to cut up some paper and put it back together!  I also had all these frames I got for chrismas so I started with the smallest one, this circle’s about 3 inches in diameter.  and I made it out of scrap book paper!  Also his monocle is a little jewelry ring!

Spectacle

Hey guys! Did anyone else notice when no one else posted anything for last month’s prompt? Did anyone else never get around to doing that illustration they were planning on posting late, but eventually? Was anyone else worried that this blog was dead forever? Fortunately, Daniel asked me to give y’all a prompt for this month so…the Ink Tank Engine will ride again? Is that even the right verb to use? Maybe I could put in a Little Engine the Could reference? Anyway, at the very least, I promise I will draw something this month and post it.

Some spectacular spectacles by Elsa Schiaparelli.

The prompt for this last bit of February is SPECTACLE. So take the opportunity to create something over-the-top ridiculous enough to put Baz Luhrmann and Hieronymus Bosch to shame. Or, if you’re short on time and/or ideas, just draw a pair of glasses on seriously anything and you’ll have a great illustration. Enjoy!
