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.

In Which I Confess All

I’ve actually been doing an index card a day since the end of April.  I know, I’m a rebel.

See, I’m not good with challenges because I am the kind of obsessive person who will freak out and give up if I miss one solitary single day.  So I wanted to do ICAD this year, but if I was going to be sure to finish I would have to form the habit first.

Also, yes, I admit it, I just wanted an excuse to buy a stack of index cards.

Anyway, here is my first OFFICIAL index-card-a-day:

An unlined index card with large faceted block letters in primary colors, reading "JUNE".
Index card, Pitt pen and colored pencils.

A somewhat crappy photo, but that’s how we roll around here.  Starting early, taking lousy pictures, smoking in the girls’ bathroom…
