Had to draw my favorite chocolate snack, M&Ms.  I buy the big bags and keep them in the refrigerator, then dole out a few in these little red snack cups, otherwise I'd eat the whole bag.

#ICAD009 This index card may look simple but it was quite the project today.  The 3 little palmetto trees are actually made using a paper punch, I then colored with colored pencil on another card, so it would show thru the punched out hole.  I then glued the two cards together. Later in the day when the cards were completely dry and flat, I drew the big Palmetto with an ink pen and colored it with colored pencils.  Finally used a 1.5 Calligraphy nib for the lettering… which I tried to scan before the ink dried… which smeared the 's' and got ink all over my scanner.  Cleaned the glass and scanned again… whew.. what a production this simple card turned out to be.


  1. Boy did you challenge yourself. Simple it was not! But I hope you ate the M&Ms to compensate

    1. It was the simple 3x5 card that just kept going and going LOL
