Napkin Art


I went out for dinner with my boyfriend and some of his workmates and caught myself drawing on my napkin while they were talking.

I've never been able to figure out just what it is about paper restaurant napkins, but they always seems to provide a spark of inspiration that is difficult to find elsewhere.

Many a family dinner out with my grandparents when I was little found my mother running to the dollar store or borrowing pens from the waitresses until she decided to carry packages of pens with her.  She tried making me carry them, but I would inevitably forget - every single time. Lucky for me, my boyfriend already carries pens at all times, because I still do it. ^^;

Anyway, this is what came of the evening:

Napkin Art

Her face is a little lopsided - the result of poor planning - but I think I might spend some time cleaning it up in photoshop and maybe giving her some legs. I don't think I'll colour it though... maybe I can find someone else who will. :)
