ICAD 8: Black and White

Hey everybody! Today was my last day of sports camp at my school; so my official first day of "break", otherwise known as having nothing to do, starts tomorrow. Today, I once again struggled to work in my art journal, but for a different reason today. Yesterday I slipped really badly when I was outside playing basketball. And I got a really deep wound on my hand. It's in an extremely awkward place on my hand, so I'm having difficulties doing anything, including doing art, or writing this blog post right now. But I did manage to push through to create this doodled ICAD. The prompt that I used today was "black and white". Tammy just released some new prompts today, so that's extremely inspiring. A fresh new start to the week!

So I created this card today with Pitt Artist Pens. I used a bunch of different brush tips, that were included in a Manga kit; lots of different grays and blacks in order to do that type of graphic drawings. Anyways. The background of this card is a little bit wonky and darker in some places than in others... I think that adds to the charm. When I was working on the card, I made the decision that I wasn't going to care about the direction of the marks. I could have made it a whole lot smoother if I would have desired to, but I decided that it would be a whole lot more me in this way. 

I hope to do a little bit more art tomorrow, since I won't have a whole lot to do, besides play basketball and read. And of course do art. Which I am sure I will try to do, even with this injury. :) Of course I could clean. I should clean. But there are so many other things to do... ANYWAYS. That's all I have for you guys today, and I'll talk to you later. See you tomorrow.


  1. This is great. Love that you pushed through for art.
    Cleaning is highly over-rated.

  2. oh dear, I hope you are doing better and will heal quickly! terrific dedication to the project, and the card turned out great!
