'Hamburger Helper' | Daily Drawing #288
Day 5, the final day of the 'Meat Week' series.
So many questions came to mind as I drew this:
- What's with the monkey's outfit?
- Why doesn't the monkey just eat the damned burger?
- And why is there no tomato on that sandwich?
Sometimes there's no rhyme or reason to what winds up on the paper. It is what it is.
This series was fun to do. I really didn't plan these out in advance and I can't spend a great deal of time illustrating them. I'd usually start in the morning playing with words and phrases until something would click. If I was lucky, an idea would stick and I'd at least get the concept and the lettering sketched out before starting my day. Then I'd come back to it at night and do the ink and and color, usually posting at around 10pm. I like working with constraints, like a theme (and time), but I starting sweating it out by Wednesday, because I didn't want to post a dud and I certainly wasn't going to bail out on the theme.
I'm working on some ideas for future series, in the meantime I'll be back to posting my usual random themed daily drawings.
