tangerine dream

I still haven't completed a drawing in the last week, I've lost my...erm...*cough*...drawing bug. But, when I was making my last post, and uploading the photos, I remembered this little drawing (above) that I did quite sometime ago. I didn't post it back then because it just looked so small and, er, pathetic (this being less harsh on myself is going very well).

It is one of the colour boxes you can see in the photos from the last post. The orange one. Obviously. I'm also posting the red and green ones -which you may have seen before - so that little orange one doesn't feel so lonely (and pathetic).

These container were all from the Body Shop and once were filled with their gorgeous body butters. From top to bottom; tangerine, pomegranate and avocado. The smell still lingers too, which is a nice surprise when you open the box. I wish this blog was Scratch and Sniff because these drawings smell gorgeous.

The kitty is fine, but I vote for the gnome in the bottle!

This is the total opposite of pathetic, which according to the American dictionary are: fortunate and estimable (totally inadequate and not to mention incorrect!). So, I'll just say these are FANTABULOUS and WONDERFULICIOUS!

Small is beauiful of course. You ae amazing!
I've got a roomful of buttons and stuff donated from women for women in the Pacific - lengths of cloth, sewing cottons, buttons, laces, wool. I must do a drawing of some of them before we pack up another twenty boxes for a container.

I like them. I like all of your stuff. I want to steal your talent. Is there a law against that?

I think all artists go through this. But...honestly, this orange one is as gorgeous as the others, which are as beautiful as your other work. You'll shake your funk soon. It just happens. : )

Where is that drawing bug? Seems like everybody's looking for him. I'm guessing he hibernates in early summer.

I'm glad you brought these out and posted them, Andrea. They're really delightful - no matter what you thought while you were doing them. I'm beginning to think that we are the worst judges of our own artwork. Whats up with that?

sratch and sniff drawings/monitors! now there's a great idea.

love these little guys - never realized they were actual containers for color. another great idea. in fact, I'm off to dig thru my containers to start a few of my own. not that I'll be drawing them mind you - I'll leave that craziness up to the professional (you!) - but every time I look at one I'll think of you!

Huulo ... maybe its time for a summer break? To rejuvenate and reinvigorate the creative juices ...

Or you could just order some creative juice from these people:

Thanks, chaps.

Yeah, Casey, I guess that our inner critic motivates us to develop and improve. I just sometime wish mine wasn't SO hyper-critical!

Mithi, that's brilliant! Hehehe. I've sent it to all my 'creative' friends.

Cheers y'all.

As a total Body Butter addict, and also complete packrat, I have amassed a serious collection of empty body butter containers.
