On Friday night just before leaving for my trip, I met up with a few friends and we talked about funny 80′s stuff. I did this silly doodle why we were talking. Since I had a lot to do once I got back home, I figured it was enough for the day.
As I mentioned in my very first post back on January 1, I have zero practice doing hand lettering, so last night I did a little bit using a random quote on the internet. It looks cute, but the next time I do something like this, I think I’ll try to do something a bit fancier.
For inspiration, next time I should probably refer to The Art of Hand Lettering, an amazing blog chronicling one artists adventures in making letters.
On Monday, I did a portrait of an old woman in pencil. This is probably one of the first times I’ve ever drawn an older person, and it was pretty interesting. I never really thought about the time and effort it takes to draw the many wrinkles a person acquires over the years. I could have spent days on this drawing.
Last Wednesday, I made a breakfast scramble bread filled with sausage, egg, and cheese for a bake sale my friend was hosting to raise money for the Night Ministry, a non-profit organization that provides housing and health care for the homeless and those struggling with poverty.
To make the bread, I used my mom’s reuben bread recipe, but instead of filling it with reuben ingredients, I filled it with one cup of cheese, 4 eggs, and about a half pound of crumbly sausage. Note that I cooked the eggs and sausage before I put it into the bread.
The bread turned out pretty good, and I was happy that it may have helped my friend raise a few dollars for a good cause.
