Clearly, the inspiration of the week is reptilian, in honor of my grandson who is snake mad and turning four this weekend.

Yesterday I spent the day creating a four foot long snake word/drawing as a giant birthday card. I loved the process and I knew the patterning and simple shape would make for a great art project for my afternoon class.

So much fun in fact, that as soon as I got home I knew I had to do another snake for myself. This one is smaller than my last, only two feet long. I drew it with sharpie, colored with Prismacolor markers (I love to work with these), patterned with fine lines and gently tweaked the end result in Photoshop.
Today was one of those days where teacher and student are perfectly blended and rendered in full glorious color.
