Black Cat. Ink, colored pencil, and graphite on smooth bristol paper.
This month, I received my first Art Snacks box. Art Snacks is a monthly art supplies package, similar to the beauty and treat boxes that are so popular now.
I decided to give it a try because I no longer had other subscriptions. David and I had enjoyed our Vegan Cuts snack box, but treats often melted in transit (it’s over 100 degrees here for months on end), so we cancelled. In fact, the heat was the reason I stopped getting beauty boxes too: lots of melted makeup.
So, Art Snacks arrived with Halloween candy. Which melted! Shocking―not. However, the art supplies hadn’t melted, because they were mostly pens and pencils, a nice watercolor brush, plus a bottle of ink.
The little card that came with the supplies encouraged the use of all products in the box to make an original piece of art. David would have had me do it anyway, because he suggested the idea before I’d even read the card!
So… here you have it: a black cat for Halloween. Which seemed ideal, given that everything in the box was black―except one colored pencil, which was orange.
I’ll be trying the box again for November and making something with whatever I get. Hoping for more color next time. It’s a fun box for artsy types!
