The kids had no school last week. Spring break is usually just that. A break. We don’t go anywhere and this year the weather wasn’t being too cooperative for doing outdoor type activities. At least we didn’t get more than a dusting of snow in the beginning of the week. I asked Dr. Destructo (Kiddo has been swamped with homework and headaches) to draw a monster using yarn or fiber or fiber animals (however he wanted), and I did the same. These are pretty awesome.
Dr. Destructo was like, “I’m going to make this monster EATING an alpaca (pronounced alapaca). That’s what monsters do. Eat things.” While he’s not “wrong”, apparently we needed rules for this little drawing experiment. No eating, kicking, beating up, or anything that isn’t nice allowed in your monster drawings. These are friendly monsters.
Dr. D’s monster ended up being inspired by dinosaurs, and he’s hanging out with these balls of yarn. He added the crochet hooks in the yarn balls, so you can see that they are yarn balls easier. The monster likes to hit the balls of yarn with his awesome tail. Sounds like a great plan to me.
Then there’s what I came up with. She’s just fantastic. I love her socks, her gaping maw of a mouth, I love that she impaled the yarn with her teeth, and her pearl necklaces are awesome. It’s the little things. Dr. Destructo said “ANOTHER green monster?!” I like green. What can I say?
My drawing has fallen to the side again. Life is busy, and I like to watch TV. Side note: Television is (EVIL) the biggest time suck if you’re trying to do any work. I love my TV, but I know it’s really (me watching) sabotaging me. If I worked on my craft(s) instead of watching TV, I’d be so much more productive. End side note. It’s not that I don’t like to draw. It’s like I forget how much I enjoy it until I’m doing it. That’s a thing, right? Anyway. I’m thinking of keeping with the theme of drawing monsters that include crochet/fiber. It’s something that I like to see other artists do, and I can always stop if it isn’t doing anything for me.
What kind of drawings and art do you like to see?
