Somebody dropped his or her orange onto the subway tracks. Bummer.

I found these in a fruit bowl around the lake house. I’m pretty sure they are tomatillos, but I wouldn’t bet my life on it. If you’d like to enter for this free postcard art, just comment at the blog (blog.natdickinson.com) and email a delivery address like it says here.

This is a quick sketch of a persimmon I was using for a still life.  It got so ripe while I was painting it I thought for sure it would be good.  But no—one bite was all I could stand—turned my mouth inside out.  I like everybody’s ink drawings so much I want to do more.

06-07 pomegranate

I did this at my office desk, over two days: started it yesterday with a lousy contour drawing and then colored it in today while scanning pages of a story. It’s based on this photo by Flickr user justinleif. We’re publishing an article tomorrow in which a pomegranate layer cake is mentioned (!!!), so I rather arbitrarily decided to draw something pomegranate-related.

It’s hard to get large areas of saturated color with these tiny little Stabilo pens, but I had a lot of time on my hands.

Tomato from my yard

Originally uploaded by cynthiacloskey.

Playing catch-up. Here’s the first drawing I did, on the first day of November. The tomato is one that I grew in what I generously call my garden. There are still a couple of green tomatoes there now, but the frosts and cold this week will bring their swift end. Still, the few nice tomatoes I enjoyed this year made the little bit of work worthwhile.

I drew this with pencil — I think that will be my medium of choice for the month. I feel I’ve forgotten everything I learned/discovered last year. Curves remain particularly hard.

This is obviously not my desk—

Apples, cup, and coffee rings

—because I would never keep anything as disgusting as fruit on my desk. (I’m freelancing at a friend’s office this evening.)
