Mull & Cull #15 - Cooking is more fun when you don an apron
I'm not afraid to admit that I like to put on an apron when I cook. It's my uniform stating I am in control of my kitchen. When it comes off it's time to eat!
Please note the "claw" hold the bear is using to cut the carrot to prevent cutting fingers. Here are some tips.
Also of note this was my first Words to Mull & Cull using a Pentel brush pen instead of a natural hair brush and India ink, which allowed me to ink it on my lunch hour. I enjoy sketching with the brush pen but always felt it was a little finicky compared to a traditional brush and avoided doing "final" work with it. At the end of the day it really looks about the same.
I picked up several brushes at Target last year where I found them on a clearance rack, but you can find them easily on-line. Here is Pentel link. The color brush is what I use. I haven't tried the official brush pen and can't speak to the difference.
This was my first sketch that was going nowhere. Apron. Check. Stocked kitchen. Check. Fun? Not so much.
