Daily Creativity: Egret Line Drawing

Daily Creativity: Egret Line DrawingDaily Creativity: Egret Line Drawing

My mother loves Egrets, the logo for her boat is the outline of one. I designed it. I have drawn an egret before for her as part of Daily Creativity, and it came up on her facebook memories this year. She and one of my sisters asked me to give it the brush ink line drawing I have been doing for Love Your Body and my Aikido drawings. I thought it would look like the boat’s logo, but it turned out pretty different. I like how the feathers came out, and if I were to do it again I think I’d make the head’s lines less complete.

Love Your Body will always be part of Daily Creativity. If you don’t like seeing celebration of the human form then (I feel bad for you) you will be disappointed here. I love this piece, it reminds me of one I did last year, but I’m sure the models are different. The photo I used didn’t have the person’s head in it, so I think I channeled last year’s model to fill in those features. I love how she is holding herself, expressing that love we should all have for our bodies.

I wasn’t able to scan this yesterday (I’m back dating this post) because I was in North Bay.

This Fairy is special to me, it’s inspired by a friend. I normally don’t draw fairies, but I have in the past. This one I like because she is peeking out and has a great expression on her face. Plus, mushrooms always make me think of my sister. It’s like she’s being protected by my sister. Ink and colored pencils on paper.

Cooking shows are awesome, but also include a lot of things both fiction and non fiction. From how to shows, to competition shows, to anime, to quick videos online, to podcasts, to movies, we explore all these have to offer. We delve into how much influence these shows have on our cooking and eating habits. Jen and Jason of the Talk Nerdy 2 Me Podcast join Nuchtchas and Tek to discuss all of these topics and to go wildly off topic, like you do. So listen and enjoy as we totally geek out about food and cooking.

Daily Creativity: I Love Broccoli!!!

Daily Creativity: I Love Broccoli!!!Daily Creativity: I Love Broccoli!!!

I Love Broccoli, and tonight I saw a meme putting down one of my favorite vegetables. So of course I had to draw it. I kinda changed my technique half way through, so it’s a bit inconsistent, but it’s vibrant. Its good raw, steamed (with some crunch still there), stir fried, baked, pan seared, you name it. Just don’t boil them to mush, and don’t hide them under cheese. A little bit of salt is all you need to bring out the flavor, but it also works really well as a contrast to other flavors in a dish.
