Ink & watercolor sketch.
A while ago, I designed a new website for a French bakery. They wanted about five different sketches for the home page. We went with one that depicted the bakery’s storefront, a sidewalk scene, with a limited pale yellow and golden brown color palette. I thought this rejected sketch of the counter would look nice with a full-color treatment. N.B.: The background is the same paper I used for my wedding invitations!
It’s a page o’ piggies this week. It might not seem very profound, but a common personality test is to ask someone to draw a pig. Everything about it is supposed to have some significance, from the direction the head is turned to the placement of the tail. Of course I don’t remember any of it now, but I tried this exercise once on some people in college. The problem was, they were all cartoonists or at least avid sketchers, so I had to say “It doesn’t matter how the pig looks, just draw one fast!”
