From My Sketch Book – Rhymes and Doodles

This face tells a tale,

Of a curious male.

One side is sad,

The other side’s glad!

My Favorite Things – Potato People, or, How to Draw Cartoon Figures

These days I’m very much a fan of the Potato People school of drawing.   Face it, it’s a lot easier to draw a potato than to draw the human figure.

Before I turned this potato into soup yesterday, I photographed it…

 

Then traced it.

 

After studying the outline, I added a circle for the head, and sticks for the legs and arms.  And since the potato looked like it was sitting, I gave it a support.

(I think you’ll agree he’s beginning to look like quite the spud.)

At this point, he was still just (potato) skin and bones, so I had to imagine what he would be wearing…and reading.  Voila!

Happy drawing!
