Buttoned

Michael MacVean chose 'buttoned' for his weekly theme at Scribble Picnic.  That was a challenge for me. I do better with themes that are nouns like plate, tree, book, bird.

But, buttoned!! So, I thought and thought. I don't do people and they use buttons. I thought about the phase 'button your lip' but that didn't work. So, here is what I came up with.

                                              Both were done with colored pencils.



and yes, I did try a person!

Linking also with Paint Party Friday

  1. Well, my goodness ... you went all out. I think both are excellent and your little hedgehog is the cutest. Your purple scarf steals the show though ... almost made me forget about the buttons :)

  3. Both excellent! The hedgehog is fun. Definitely works (both of them) for "buttoned."

  5. You show such fun sides of you with the whimsical and the lovely woman. Both are great ways to illustrate "buttoned"

  10. Good job on drawing the person (and also the critter)... I shy away from trying to draw people very often also!

  15. Fabulous Latane - you definitely went above and beyond with this week's theme, it was hard.
    I love hoggies as we nickname them in the UK - and have a friend there who is a hedgehog rescuer.

  16. That little hedgehog is just too cute. Makes me want to go splash around in some puddles in the rain this afternoon! Happy PPF (I'm catching up a bit late).
