Illustration Friday - Sprout

In a bizarre breakthrough experiment pens began sprouting from my cup.

  1. Be careful...the cross breeding between writing utensils and scissors can cause some very strange offspring:>

    Love the contrast of the detailed pens, pencils, and scissors in the very spare mug.

  2. There is something very spontaneous and cool about this. BTW: A late response to say that I loved your "red" post.

  13. Your keenly-observed sketch also gives me a chance to reflect on:
    Is the cup half-empty (below the line), half-full (above the line) or half-fast (shadows and/or motion lines under the handle)?

    :-)

    Hope all is swell in Willie-Land!

  24. All my pens disappear; I think my mugs must eat them.

    However, pens have been known to sprout under my daughter's bed and an armchair in the living room sprouts them under the cushion.

    A mug would be a far more convenient.

  25. haha sounds and looks familiar!! did you take a peek on my desk? clever take!!

  26. Man, if only this would happen when my "almost out of ink" pens were close to running out. They could just regenerate themselves....and the scissors, they would resharpen. Oh, if imagination worked that way....

  27. You always come up with such clever concepts, and I like your casual, spontaneous line work.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ooooh! Magic pen sprouting cup, I gotta get me one of those.

  29. I love this one... the crossing line gives it a very interesting feeling. Great work.
