Day 61: Ilinois

Illinois Drawing

Tonight I made this map of Illinois. Secret: This was super easy to do.  All I did was manipulate a map of Illinois using Picnick, print it out, paint it, scan it back it, and then add the text. Not bad!

Unrelated, this is a reminder to participate in my social art project, “Undone, Done.” Entries are due on Sunday!

Day 35: Sweet Tooth

Sweet Tooth Doodle

My doodle today was inspired by the chocolate hazelnut torte I had at the French bakery in the Logan Square this afternoon.  It had a pie-like crust that was layered with a roasted hazelnut butter and chocolate ganache. It was amazing. If only the bakery was equally amazing. When I asked for a cup of coffee today they told me, “we’re not allowed to serve coffee.” What does that mean? On a previous trip there, I tried to order a croissant and they told me that you could only order the croissants by the dozen, which is pretty ridiulous since they’re $4.00 each. Who wants to spend $48.00 on a dozen croissants?

Annnnnyways, before I sign off, I wanted to share a link to a very cute song called “Sweet Tooth” by Alexis Harte. I hope you enjoy it!
