This had to be a quick one! I would have liked to push this one a bit farther and also reworked the characters. Right now I feel like I kept them too close to real bears or at least didn't develop the characters as well as I could. Oh well, chalk this one up to something I can rework later, I guess.
It's no picnic when you have a goal- a clear definite sign post in the road that you know you are headed to and all bloody H-E-double hockey sticks breaks loose. My computer has been dying, it died. BUT I got a new one! BUT it is still not set up completely. BUT it is faster! BUT I still have Photoshop from 2006. Ongoing freelance- that I thought would hold off until after SCBWI LA... has resurfaced. These things are not truly terrible but are enough to throw me off my Sketchables game. Apologies for no "Picnic" post. Just trying to get some new stuff done for LA. And going to a horse show today for the kid in 100 degree weather. I hope you all stay cool and get to have a real picnic with no ants!!!
Yes, I LOVE ice cream! The rich decadent stuff and anything chocolate. But, let's not forget those tasty ice cream treats, the fudgcicle, the ice cream sandwich and those super yummy chocolate covered cones with the chocolate in the bottom!
Hope your Summer has been full of all sorts of treats and fun!
Inspired by D's Mom. The Super Sized Soft Serve. I must admit- was never a fan of soft serve growing up. My husband converted me with Mr. Softee. Down the shore in NJ- no Mr. Softee. I had NO IDEA! It is the best vanilla (also not a vanilla girl... like chocolate with chocolate and more chocolate on top) If you are in the NY area- and have not spied a Mr. Softee truck on a street corner or heard the jingle wafting thru the summer air.... Have no fear!! My husband and I are hot of the truck's trail!- We have been known to stalk our local Mr. Softee.
1. Ben and Jerry's peanut butter cup
2. Herrell's - local scoop shop in NOHO, MA - chocolate peanut butter (best home made hot fudge in the world)
3. Mr. Softee vanilla with chocolate dip - that gets crunchy and the ice cream melts out all over the place
My top ice cream flavors are: *Mint (not the disgusting kind that's colored green) with a fudge swirl *Strawberries & Cream *Butter Pecan (oh, mama! This is my go-to flavor) *Cookies & Cream *Dulce de Leche
On a road trip home this Spring, my mom and I stopped at a DQ for a dipped-cone. You know, a little treat to hit the spot? Well, mom's sweet tooth was hollering something fierce so she said, "I think I'll have a large!" When the drive-thru window opened up, my jaw just about hit the steering wheel. That sucker was ENORMOUS. Mom yelped, "Oh my God, take it back!" I just about died laughing handing the girl our money. We pulled away and every time I looked at that monster cone I lost it. My small looked positively petite! Mom eventually ate the entire cone, and when she was done she declared she couldn't eat any ice cream for the rest of the year. Moral of the story? Be careful what you wish for!
This week it's all about that cool, refreshing treat we love, because July is National Ice Cream Month!
Here is my quick, rough sketch ~ the very initial sense of what this image would include. The amazingly yummy thought of a sundae including my top favorite ice cream flavors! Sadly, Ben & Jerry's Wavy Gravy flavor is no longer with us. =o( My utmost favorite B&J flavor EVER.
