The most angular food I could think of was a square waffle:

After sketching this I actually went and bought a waffle iron that can make thick, square waffles (which I’ve wanted to get for a while, so it wasn’t only because of the delicious drawing 😁).

I’ve never tried a homemade version of this kind of waffle, since the waffles we make in Denmark are most often a thinner kind shaped like a clover / 4 hearts.

I have several waffle recipes I want to try out with my new gadget, and I might even start with a sourdough version.

Here’s the drawing before inking (and waffle iron shopping), I almost like it better than the inked version:

Snack time for the blue whale:

“Just one more krill and then I’ll put the bag away” said no whale with krill dust around its mouth ever.

I did a bit of research (yes, googling) today about blue whales, and this article by National Geographic explains that blue whales actually don’t waste their energy on small patches of krill. But hey, who says I need to start being accurate about things on here.

A bit about drawing tools:

I always forget to say which drawing tools I use, so here I’ve included them in the photo.

I’ve used the black pen (uniball AIR) for the thin lines in all my Inktober drawings and have been using mainly Stabilo markers for colouring.

Today I switched it up and used these Winsor & Newton water colour markers. I bought them this summer but haven’t used them a lot, because I’ve had trouble getting the technique right. But it worked out allright on the whale, even though my Inktober notepad isn’t water colour paper, yay!

Inktober 2018 #7

I wonder who’s more exhausted today: me after a whole weekend of birthday celebrations (yay/yikes, I’m 30!) – or the actor who played Tarzan in the musical that I went to see yesterday.

Probably me, because Tarzan is in a lot better shape than I am. Which justifies me posting this a day late, maybe!

I’m super happy as well, though – about the musical as well as all the birthday fun.

The prompt for Day 2 of Inktober is “tranquil” and my brianstorm quickly centered around coffee. Partly inspired by all the cool coffee art in my feeds yesterday (apparently a kind of coffee celebration day?).

When I REALLY tried to think past coffee (which is difficult at any moment of my day), I thought of yoga. So here we go:

Dont know how tranquil that experience would be IRL.

Peach at the beach

Summer has been incredibly hot in Denmark this year, and I drew this doodle on a warm day in late July while still on vacation. I didn’t get around to post it then – probably because I was too lazy in the heat and my hands were too sweaty for typing.

Anyway, if it’s not obvious, the inspiration for this doodle is the peach emoji. The peach meaning “butt” is very old news, but my doodle ended up as a relatively proper bathing suit version.

I haven’t seen this bathing suit design IRL anywhere, but it would be great if it exists.
