Journal 52 prompt for week 32 is.................. Favorite Foods! Now I like to EAT, and the list of what I DON'T like is way shorter then what I DO like, so I really had to think about this challenge. There was steak and lobster to think about, but then pasta stuck his head into the conversation, and then there was a reaction from the hamburger section, and I couldn't leave out potato salad (my recipe of course) and the list just kept getting looonnnngerrrrr! BUT there is one thing that I WILL NOT leave alone, if they are in the house, and that is COOKIES! From bite size to dinner plate size I love cookies. They require no plate or eating utensils, easy to carry, and go with any drink on the market. I do prefer mine with a hot cup of coffee, and my favorite cookie is a home made oatmeal raisin with lots of nuts. McDonalds has a really good oatmeal raisin cookie as well as Sequoia Sandwich Shop, but home made is still the king.
So for this strong addiction I decided there was only one character that wood work for this prompt, and that would be Sesame Street's Cookie Monster................right??? I printed out a coloring book page from the intranet and traced him onto the page ( you didn't really think I DREW him...........seriously???) I played around with some lettering, drew a cup of coffee, then took a circle stencil and made the background orbs. For color, I used the GD's water colors ( since they were all ready moist and ready to go) for the orbs I used Inktense pencils and a moist brush. I wanted it to be bright and cheerful like Sesame Street is.
I remember when Sesame Street first started, waaaayyyyyy back when my boys were little, and we watched A LOT of it. Of course we didn't have 5000 channels to choose from at the time......LOL and it wasn't all animated. How times have changed......eh??
