out of the blue

Just a quickie. I suddenly had the urge to draw a travel toothbrush. No, I can't explain it either.

Hehe! Your drawings of single objects are just as good as the ones of collections. Lovely colours! Makes me want to brush my teeth...

Anita Davies said...

I brought one with me to England, juts like that. Blue, too.

And wow it's absolutely pissing down here!! Good old British rain. I'm so happy.

I don't know how you were able to create a mood with a travel toothbrush, but you did. It is so peaceful and has such a glow. I think this might be one of my favorites!

I have never thought a travel toothbrush could be called pretty until now!

How long did this one take you?

Genine said...

Thanks folks.

This looks a better enlarged. You can see the bristles then.

Jeanneg, I dunno, maybe a couple of hours. That is quick for me!

Pete, we put the rain on especially for you. And the wind and the grey skies.

Cheers!

Some things are just beyond explanation. I like it just the same.

jeez Andrea! I've been looking through all the latest drawings that I've missed out on and I'm gob-smacked speechless, you are a true inspiration. So much so that I am now completely blocked ... :) Will just have to go back and examine yours more minutely as usual, with my jaw scraping the ground.

WOW! How many times have i written these three letters on your blog, Andrea?! This one is even more refined than the previous toothbrush (one of my all-time AJ favorites), and it does have a glow...
If only my travel brush looked like this.

Love it! I just read an amazing poem on your site: just look to the right to the titles of "Recent Posts" and it's a wonderful piece of poetry:
out of the blue
all that you touch
shadow on the things you know
once, twice, three times a
table
where the shadows come to play
for he's a jolly good fellow
waitin' on a sunny day
over my shoulder
hurt
looking down on everything

Thank you chaps. Thank you for the kind words. I am blushing, right now.

Mariana, you're daft!

And, Jana, that's quite spooky. And the shadows, yeah they play a big part in my life. Sppoky!

Cheers folks.

I've been staring at this drawing from a distance on my Flickr friends posts, wondering what the blue tech-looking thing was, but yes! a travel toothbrush, of course. I liked it as a pure abstract blue tech thing in my mind as well.

Congratulations on hitting the 250 mark, and what amazing posts they have been too - I look forward to the next 250!!

I hope you'll do another 250!
On my flickR site in the art set is something that might ring a bell for you.I thought of your drawings the minuute I saw it!

E-J said...

I'm beginning to suspect you must use one of those superfine toothbrush bristles to do your drawings ... Just dunno how you do it.

I don't seem to have the e-mail with your address in it ... sorry, but could you please send it to me again?

Teri C said...

andrea joseph's sketchblog said...

Thanks, folks.

No travel plans, as yet. Unfortunately.

EJ, I'm on to it.

Cheers, peeps.
