Welcome to the new edition of Found Art Tuesday! Today's topic is TOY
When I was growing up my favorite toy was a box of crayons. Crayola was the only brand I ever knew. we used to called them simply crayolas, as in "Will you give me that red crayola? Es mia, esa crayola es mia! Mama!!! Oliver me esta quitando mis crayolas!!!" They used to come in different sized boxes. 6, 12, 18 different colors. On a birthday I got a box that had about 52 colors, or, a gazillion colors in the eyes of a 6 yr. old. This particular box also came with a built in crayola sharpener which I thought was the best invention of mankind, because before this I thought that crayons were doomed to loose their pointy tip which was soo pretty and cool.
This is a drawing made in plain white paper and illustrated with what else... crayons. I used a brown pen to draw the outlines and then colored it in a little bit. It's been a while since I've made a freehand drawing like this with nothing glued or other collage made because these were the only supplies I had at hand. (which are my daughter's crayons) As I was drawing this I remembered how much I loved to draw when I was a kid, it was a magical feeling.
This drawing has a child-like quality I liked, it's so different from what I normally do.
I'm leaving this today at the mall.
