I was looking at some fantastic drawings on styrofoam cups with a Sharpie!!!! by Cheening Boey. He uses the Fine Point one, not the extra fine that I tend to prefer. I like the strong graphic quality, so I decided to use the heavier line for this drawing. It's interesting how much the drawing implement influences the drawing decisions. I found some styrofoam cups and tried my hand at drawing on one. A fun discovery. Thank you, Boey, for the inspirational success story and for a new idea.
Interesting that once I missed a day, I have become very lax about this project. Mental head slap!! I want that discipline back that this project was supposed to instill in me. Just goes to show that 21 days in a row doesn't always create a permanent habit. I'm hoping 365 might do it.
This was an interesting discovery. The pigma brush pen doesn't stick to this slick paper. I had to go over some of the lines with the Sharpie. It does give a line variation this way. It seems some of the surface paper is more accepting of the ink than other parts. Always good to have plan "B".
