You find the most interesting people and things when you chase rabbit trails online. I recently discovered the artist, Kal Barteski, by following a link from one of the blogs I read. I love her stuff! (Not to mention her really cute dog named Frank!) Go to her blog – [i] LoveLife – to see for yourself.
I’ve been fascinated by some of her recent continuous line drawings like this one:
All those trees and her signature are one line. I was showing this to the kids while we waited for our supper at the restaurant tonight. Each had to study it closely before believing it was all a continuous line. Then my youngest, Mia, who is by far the best artist in the family declared that she could do this too. She made a $1 bet with her big sister (who took the bait) and then went to work on a napkin.
This is Mia’s first attempt at a continuous line drawing. Notice her signature on the left-hand side.Not half bad, huh?
Guess who won $1 tonight?!
