Bowl of Dip

Sometimes commissions aren’t that interesting. This is a sketch I did for a set of drawings for an educational book. Its a bowl of dip. But as always the end result was to be of a high standard, so I attempted to make the best of the whole commission. It was also achieved on a tight deadline, so all the work was sketched and scanned in and coloured in photoshop, using the layer effect of ‘Multiply’. The final is below.

1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste

Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
