Idiot, watercolour and collage text on paper,16x12cm
As this week’s Illustration Friday topic is beard and I happen to be a watcher ofWheezywaiter videos (a beardlover if you will) I thought I should create something focused around Craig and his loverly beard.
I also then decided to add my favourite quote of his, because why not.
I had some artwork off-cuts of cream and brown paper that had been inked which I didn’t to throw away. Of course I decided to make them into a bookmark.
The image is from The Graphics Fairy (as always). I used a little bit of ink to enhance her detailing and image transfered the quote “Finishing a good book is like leaving a good friend.”
On the back, over the top of the purple and white ink, I used a simple craft text stamp.
Now I kind of want to make a series of these and possibly sell them…maybe. Even if I don’t sell them, I’ll have some nice bookmarks for myself.
I need to do a little trial of setting up an online shop to sell a few things I’ve made recently.
