Newport's Oregon Coast Aquarium had a marketing campaign a few years ago called "Odd Water." This pufferfish was inspired by a postcard Kevin bought me because the slogan AND the cartoon were so adorable. It has even a staple in our bathroom display ever since. Now I file it away where I keep all my postcards :)
Materials: colored pencil, ink
Time: 20 minutes
P.s. The font was inspired by my sixth grade teacher Mr. Faber's bubble writing.
Sugar sleeping holding heart toy :) Not bad for my very first try!
Materials: Ampersand scratchboard 5x7, scratch tool, tracing paper, watercolour
Time: About an hour (went faster then I thought...a better strategy would be to learn how to slow down so you don't scratch more off then you envision)
Wow, it looks a lot better than the trace I did (see Day 19). I just did the heart on the fly but it turned out. The challenge with scratchboard is to not "draw" it first by scratching it in. I had a challenge with leaving enough black space at first. So, a board this size with a subject like this was a great place to start!
