Drawing Cute Things For Fun

Drawing cute things? Or cute things drawing? If you’re a teacher looking for resources for art education, go to Blick for art resources and free lesson plans when you’re done here.

When it comes to drawing doodles, “cute” is an identifiable aesthetic. At least it is on YouTube. And from what I can tell, it involves drawing giant cartoon eyes and a tiny mouth on an object that doesn’t have any business seeing or smiling.

Watermelon. Coffee mugs. Unicorn cake. Ice cream cones.

I set out looking for drawing tutorials of simple objects with thick lines for the purpose of coloring, and these fit the bill. I colored with Crayola SuperTips.┬áRight┬ánow I only have water-based markers. (I have some alcohol-based markers on my holiday wishlist though. OMG. Can’t wait to get some and try them. I have never used alcohol markers before, but I’ve been watching actual artists on YouTube with their professional markers, and *swoon*)

In other visual art-related news, I posted a sketch I drew on Instagram yesterday. I followed a tutorial for drawing faces, and it turned out…well…click the link if you want to know.

Basically, I’m just trying out a bunch of random artsy things and seeing if any of them stick. My first love is and always will be Zentangle, but sometimes I want to try something with a little more color or just challenge myself to do something new. Then, while I’m coloring a slice of watermelon or practicing Zentangle patterns, I’m usually thinking about the memoir. Yeah, that book I drafted a couple of months ago and am now too chicken to look at again.
