EDM Challenges 30 and 13

Today was all housework and washing at home but I made good use of my coffee breaks and completed two more EDM challenges in my 'little book' .
Challenge no.30 was to sketch a chair. I decided to use something different on this sketch, a ballpoint pen. It was quite nice to work with but sadly didn't scan too well...My apologies.
The lettering is in pink ballpoint.

Challenge no.13 was to sketch a telephone. I chose my mobile because...it's mobile...and I could take it over to the comfort of my sofa while I sketched. It is such a pretty phone with a gold metallic front, a tan leather look backing and a colour coordinated tassel hanging from the side.
Very feminine!

Very n ice chair and the cell phone is pretty great too!!! awesome jobs!

Dave said...

I especially like the chair, though the girly phone is good too. It's amazing what some artists can achieve with ballpoint pen.

Deborah said...

Very nice on both of these. The chair is great, I love what you can do with a ballpoint pen.

Anita said...

Thanks Margaret!

Anita said...

Thanx Dave, I enjoyed using the ballpoint...Give it a whirl!

Anita said...

Thankyou Deborah!

I love the sketch of the cell phone -very graphicy. It would make a great ad in a fashion mag.

Both of these are very well done, but I especially like the chair. Beautiful!

E-J said...

Cool phone, and cool drawing of phone.

I can't stand ballpoint pen! You clearly know how to get the best out of yours, though.

Sandy said...

I love all your drawings Anita .You seem to be having lots of fun

Does EDM mail the challenge to you each week? I haven't even been able to get an updated list. I think the one I found is stopped at 106. I found a list on Karen's site once but can't find it now.

Oh I love the phone, great job! :) I love Nokia phones, they're the best.

Dave said...

JeanneG, you can find the latest challenge on the EDM Yahoo group site: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/everydaymatters/

I think you did a great job with the ballpoint - I also like the way it has scanned.

Mommy Bee said...

Your phone is sooooo classy...I would agree with your "feminine", as well. I would be afraid of scratching it...It is so beautiful. The tassle adds such character.

Anita said...

Thanks juj!

Anita said...

Thanks Phthaloblu!

Anita said...

Thankyou E-J. First time using a ballpoint to sketch with but I think I'll give it another go.

Anita said...

Thankyou Sandy...I sure am!

Anita said...

Jeanne, the list can be found on the EDM yahoo group under the section headed FILES.
Hope that helps!

Anita said...

Thankyou Sarah!

Anita said...

It is gorgeous isn't it AND it came with a chinese silk purse/sleeve to protect it so it's perfectly safe in the demolition site that is my handbag!

Anita said...

Thankyou Shelley!

Anita said...

Thankyou Pugs...I have to agree, I love Nokia phones they are so easy to use.
