In Which A Theme Is Detected

Here are some cards from the second week of ICAD.

Three index-card artworks in various shades of purple.

Are you sensing a theme? I’m sensing a theme.

Yes, that upper right-hand one was done for the prompt “magenta”, and yes it was totally phoned in.  (The 14th was extremely busy, in my defense.)  I’m pretty proud of the other two, though.

Drawing of a crowned woman with brown skin and puffy hair, captioned "Vivat Regina" (long live the queen).

Colored pencil and gel pens on 3×5 index card.

Broke out my trusty glitter gels for this lady.  I’m practicing drawing different types of hairstyles, cos we can’t ALL have flowing waist-length tresses, right?   (“Vivat Regina” means “long live the queen”.  I am all about queens. And princesses.  And tiaras for all, really.)

Book text arranged on a cross-hatched purple background to form an imaginary book review.

Collage and alcohol markers.

This is a review of an imaginary book, using text from old encyclopedia articles, including an AMAZINGLY condescending one about Elizabeth Barrett Browning.  (Did you know she was only a “minor poet” because her emotions were too strong?   *eyeroll*)

I may have used up my month’s supply of purple, but it was worth it.
