In case you haven’t noticed – I like em’ small.
Sometimes smaller than the 2.5 x 3.5 inch sketch cards I’ve been drawing on lately .
Because I’ve been a bit of a penny-pincher these days, I’ve been cutting my own artist trading cards – which results in uneven sized cards AND little scraps of leftover paper.
I GUESS I could just recycle the scraps. OR I could draw some cutesy doodles like this.
Originally, I was saving these scraps to brush up on watercolor (hyuk hyuk!)
But when I started doing trades – I took to these scraps to add some cute, doodly extras to the sketch cards as a nice surprise for the other artist.
Sometimes I end up taking a lot more time than I thought I would drawing on just ONE of these things. But sometimes I go free and easy and end up making something really silly.
I have a lot of fun drawing these – something a little extra for someone else to collect! They make cute bookmarks or piece to pin up.
If ever you trade art with me – you just might find a cute doodly surprise!
