"Pie" for Creative Tuesdays

As I posted via Instagram for those of you guys on that site as well, My entry includes Pie (Sweet), Pi (Mathematical), and Pie (Pizza, given that as one who dwells originally from New York, we often refer to Pizza as "Pie").  Here it is below:

I also chose to keep my cartoon sketch black and white because it's October, and online there's a thing going on called "Inktober."  Mister Toast is doing it too; yay for #inktober!  :-D  

It's a challenge to try and do a drawing every day in October, but the caveat is that the drawing has to include ink!  So, I used gray (or light black, as the packaging says) and black ink to draw my Raccoon.  I also drew it in a sketchbook I found and didn't realize I still had, which has textured, natural paper, which you might be able to see some of the texture of from the above photo.

I think he is a Math teacher, and perhaps amateur chef (who forgot to take off his hat upon entering his classroom).  Regardless, he happily brought some pie in for his students to try, while wearing a mathematically appropriate shirt for the occasion, and drawing about "Pie" and "Pi" on his blackboard.  While, secretly dreaming of Pizza.  It would be appropriate that this Raccoon was from New York, as they are critters who have overrun the suburban areas of NYC.  I've mentioned on the blog before, probably, about my dealings with these cute, but unfortunately destructive if they get into your attic, little (or sadly usually thirty to fifty pounds; not that little) guys.  I try and make cartoons and art about them as an homage/peace offering/incentive for them to do their thing in the forest, and not my house.

In any case, I loved looking at everyone's work!  I'm going to include a few links below.

If you are like me and getting this in late, below is the link to submit to this week's challenge for "Creative Tuesdays," of "Pies!"  Mister Toast has a fabulous illustration of a cute little boy carrying a ginormous, sky-high pile of yummy looking pies.

Here's the link to Creative Tuesday's Overall Blog, run by the fabulous Mister Toast, and posted to by a variety of really cool people and artists:

If any of you guys are interested in seeing the similar (but shorter) post/write up of this piece on my Instagram, that link is below:

And for anyone who is also on Instagram, I'd love to follow you/be C.T. buddies!  Link below.

Thanks guys!  Grateful for the inspirational themes, awesome people, and fun challenges of Creative Tuesdays, as always.

Very clever to incorporate pi into your drawing. As ever love your creative use of the story going along with the art. Another great piece.

Oh yes, pizza is definitely a pie too. I remember going into a Beaujous and seeing all the mountain "pies" on the menu and asking if I could jsut have the regualr pizza version. silly twit. Haha.

Thank you for all the links btw. Love them and the descript of my piece too. :)

Your interpretation is full of all sorts of pie. Clever clever. thank you. I love too that you are doing inktober. The only prob is that I am already falling behind. I have done something each day but just not liking my entries enough to post them. Isn't that bad? LOL.

Well, Donna, I think the next theme will be right up your alley. So looking forward to seeing whatever you might do. Regardless, I know it will be creative. thank you.
