Ice cream and Popsicles

Yesterday I drew a little hamburger late at night for the sake of the challenge. Today I had more time, so I played around with my watercolors.

As usual, sorry for the lousy photo.

I had a lot of fun, as I always do, with watercolor, but I know I still need to learn the proper techniques.

It is on my to-do list.

What’s next?

Just a little doodling today…

These are food items from a few pins I saved.

Guess what the next challenge will be about?

Yes, indeed.


But, just to be clear, no weekends this time.

The last day

Well, it has now been 30 days since I started drawing plants for the challenge, and I must say… while I learned A LOT, I think it is time to change the subject.

Don’t get me wrong, I will be drawing plants for the rest of my life, they are my passion, but I have a whole list of themes planned out for the next challenges.

And by the way, if anybody is listening, I would love to get some suggestions!

To conclude, here is the last sketch of the last day, a gift for a dear friend of mine. We call these fruits pitangas (you might remember them from Some line work).

I used pencil, watercolors and ink. It is supposed to look “sketchy”.


There is this game I love, it is called The Legend of Mana. In this game there is a cactus.

His name is Li’l Cactus, and he is a shy little cactus.

“He is a cactus of few words, but he happens to be thinking about many things.”

He likes to be told stories, and then write them down on his diary.


Somehow I ended up doodling sweets this afternoon.

I was a little worried about whether or not I was truly developing my visual library and linework just by copying artists over and over again…  but of course that’s a great way to improve, no need for worries. 

This is my own design, as messy as it is. I doodled it from a few photos of sweets from Pinterest.

Sunday sketch

Today I came to my parents’ for lunch and did a sketch from one of my father’s books.

Just a tree.

I won’t even show you what I drew yesterday because it was just so the challenge wouldn’t be lost. In fact, for the next challenge I will make a new rule, which is that it should last for 30 week days, so my weekends are not in jeaperdy. Though, as it is, they really aren’t: the challenge is…
