IMAO Link of the Day: That'd Keep'em Out I Reckon!
In August, 2011 I was working my way through a stack of light-orange colored cardstock paper, and when that was used up, I went back to drawing on the back of FDIC forms I swiped from the customer service counter at my bank. Eventually I bought some real drawing paper, of course, but I did some good work with these "wear-it-out, use-it-up, make-it-do" materials.
First up, the one picture from August, 2011 that I was actually able to post last week ...
|Random Nodes of Confluence. 8/2/11|
|I mean this one!|
|Sword of the Cherubim. 8/3/11|
"He drove out the man; and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.",
Since it looked like a wicker gate made of sword blades to me. I figured, "yep, that'd keep'em out, I reckon!"
Anyway, that was so much fun, I did two more in quick succession, experimenting with variations in pattern and color. Since the basic structure was just a simple zig-zag, I couldn't make them too hard to draw, no matter how many fiddly-bits I added to the secondary details, which is why I could finish all three in about a week.

Well, that's it for August, 2011. Next week I can show the 7 designs I did in September, 2011. I hope you'll like them.
And now, Kevin Koastie!
