Drawing Challenge: Patchwork

Here it is my artwork for the patchwork challenge.
Ink drawings.
This is a patchwork of my sketches from my journal for my card range that I am in the process of handprinting/handcolouring. (very excited!)
Just leave a comment below when youve finished your challenge drawing cant wait to see them.....

Well the ideas and artwork responses to the theme are really quite amazing this is such an interesting exercise to see what can be interpreted by many individuals from a single word.
You can check out the works by clicking on the comments below and heading over to the individual blogs a nice way to spend some time on the weekend methinks!

aw, so my comment is on the previous post, you know...
these look promising. will they remain mono couloured, because this lends dimension i find. even without the challenge this would draw my attention.

FUn! this drawing really makes me smile. Funny to say, but it feels like Spring, you know the energy of spring! happy and fresh.

Thanks Stephanie

they are an expansion on a theme of mine and whilst I started off with different ideas to begin with I realised that these were working into theme of patchwork with their checkered buttons so I 'stitched them together in a vignette. I thought they would be separate but in a series but I actually really like them together as well.

Hey i popped over to yours love the brain. Dont feel pressured into completing on time.

Do we have any ideas for next weeks challenge who it is or what it is? supposed to be?

objectsofwhimsy said...

I love the black and white with touches of green! It's like a jigsaw.

They would make cute cards. Brilliant!

jasmin said...

Ariane Reichardt said...
