Scratch Art Camel and Zebras

Scratch art is a really fun medium to work with – it’s a board or paper coated with white then black ink so when you scratch it the white is revealed. You can go really in detail, or just do solid lines. Either way, it always has a bold, striking result. It’s also nice because you don’t have to frame them when you’re done – they look great just hanging on your wall.

I get the scratchboards from Jerry’s Artarama. They may seem expensive but they’re definitely worth it.

    Really cool. But to get the best advantage of the medium, one must be able to draw.

      Yes, I find it helpful to draw what you’re going to do first. Since you can’t erase what you do it helps to eliminate mistakes.

I've done a pitiful job of reading this year. Do you have advice on how to read more (or watch TV less) amidst stress and a tired mind? Eternal God I've become inspired to increase my piano playing's finesse, but I still have fun banging out coffee-fueled tunes over lunch break. Met two cool people and was a guest on the @womenintechshow podcast!
Listen to the episode on my blog (link in bio). Let's pretend I'm standing in front of a rack of spacesuits and am about to be shot to the International Space Station in order to conduct research on interplanetary travel and meet a delegation of aliens.
