My cousin Amber and I have decided to be Pen Pals once again -- we used to send letters/drawings/"assignments" to one another back, oh, over 10 years ago. So now that she's a college graduate (and a teacher) we're back to giving each other "homework" through the mail. :-D
This task she gave reads as follows: "Your assignment is to draw a creative pair of salt + pepper shakers incorporating at least 2 of the enclosed stickers! Good luck!!"
Here's the sheet of stickers she sent:
Some of these items looked like the '80s to me, so I went with that theme. The iconic Mr. T becomes the iconic Mr. P for Pepper ("I pity the AH-- AH-- CHOO!!") and he got the green sunglasses.
I did 2 versions of the salt shakers (OVERACHIEVER; TEACHER'S PET). First up is a Cyndi Lauper-wannabe, mainly because these pinky-stripey glasses made me think of her, but also because her color combos are fun. I don't think I've ever used my fluorescent colored pencils before. Never had a reason to. But when you're drawing the '80s, it's kind of a requirement, ya know?
"Salt" of Salt-n-Pepa fame seems a likely choice, but I'm not above likely choices, as you may already know. Very happy to find a reference of her wearing a varsity-style jacket -- makes the "S" make lotsa sense.
Thanks to Amber for a great idea and an engaging exercise!
