Sunday Funnies 8: Sunday Sketches



This week, with spring in mind, I turned a cosmetic brush into a blossoming flower. This idea came to me pretty quickly as I laid the brush down on a blank background and saw a sunflower in the making. I thought it would be timely with Easter this weekend and finally some spring weather in Atlanta.

Sunday Funnies 8: Sunday sketches

Christoph Niemann is an illustrator, artist, and author whose work regularly appears in the New York Times, the New Yorker, and elsewhere. He’s got a mixed media series that he calls “Sunday Sketches” (some examples in his portfolio here or check out his Tumblr for more), in which he takes some object from his surroundings and creates a sketch on the page around it.

For this week’s Sunday funnies assignment, make your own Sunday sketch in a similar style.
