Hello All! I decided to do a simpler, graphic sketch for this C.T., and I had fun!
First off, the theme was bread and jam. I thought of doing something sweet and classic, maybe a child wearing a Victorian outfit eating some bread and jam. But then I couldn't stop thinking about Kawaii-- that means super cute in Japanese, and there are a lot of tee-shirts, designs, and just drawings on the web of Kawaii food, where food becomes anthropomorphic, has cute little faces, and has a life of its own.
So, for my "Bread and Jam" submission, there are two tiny pieces of toast who are friends. One has to help the other, as you can see from the caption above. I had fun doing this as it was a fun pun to create, and a fun little scene to draw. I suppose it's a bit cute yet dark given the predicament of the toast in the jam, but, luckily he's got a friend there to save him from the sticky situation.
With maybe a bit of tweaks and re-drawing, I feel like it could work as a tee-shirt or a silly card design. I know Mister Toast and others have discussed the merits of Traditional art over Vector art, but I'm glad that I drew this one with lines that I think could translate to Vector-ing, if necessary. I used a pentel brush pen for the lines, le plume markers for the blue background and some of the coloring (those are like copics but not as much), and watercolor for everything else.
Hope everyone is having a great day! Here is the link to Mister Toast's website, where you can see his wonderful illustrations and read his blog:
And here's his blog entry to submit for today's theme of "bread and jam," for which there is still a bit of time:
Thanks for reading! Hugs and take care.
