During my son’s Ancient Athens social studies unit I did a set of Greek Monsters lunch bags. Medusa took me a while for 2 reasons. 1) her hair pushed me to remember that snakes and tubes and not flat stripes and 2) SNAKES!!!! Of all of the creatures of the world, I don’t understand why snakes?! They bring out my inner horse and it gets panicky aggressive!!
All in all, though I think she turned out pretty good! Don’t look at the arm angle. Her arm isn’t dislocated. Honest
With that one done my youngest hesitantly asked me to switch over to drawing something cuter. Apparently, the snakes creeped him out too!
I had forgotten how much I love using my Derwent Inktense pencils. The vibrancy of these water-activated colours always brings me joy.
These please my son’s nature-loving soul! Point for Mom!
