Creative Tuesday: Ice Cream

It's Creative Tuesday!  Do a little dance with me! 

Oh, how I've missed sitting down to spend time with my pad and color pencils, it was just wonderful to see what came out for the theme over at Mr. Toast's Creative Tuesday's assignment!

This week's theme was Ice Cream! Yippie!!  I sure have had my share of ice cream this summer and must admit it's one of my favorite pleasures.  Now you can see why I had to find a few minutes to play along.  But what to draw?

{I'll let you in on a little secret.}  I have spent my doodling time trying to dream up a fabric design worthy to submit to the Connecting Threads fabric design contest.   I am sure that this creative piece is the result of some of the ideas I have been toying with.
Fun right?  And who couldn't go for an extra extra large twisty cone?

For you font geeks out there... yes, I hand drew hippo font -- it seemed only fitting!
 
Mr. Toast, that was a ton of fun!!  Great theme!  Thank you for the challenge and looking forward to already saying YES! to accepting your next challenge!  

I hope you consider joining in this or the next assignment (really hope you do) and please take a look other artists in the community here 
 
Now, off with you happy hippo sweets!  Off to the rest of the day with a bounce in your step!

Octopus from Mr. Toast, and now a Hippo...Not just people who love ice cream. Just wonder how much ice cream a Hippo can eat....??? Probably all he wants too.


Such a cute and happy drawing.

Hahaha, I love the hippo font too--how smart of you and yes, is that double entendre? Eat too much ice cream and we'll look like hippos? LOL. Very fun as usual. So glad you liked the theme. I thought you would!
