A young gentlemen sat down with his girlfriend at Maker Faire to color. She barely began when he said, “There, a Pope’s Hat”. She objected and said it wasn’t enough and I jumped in and said, “What if, because his hat is so tall, it’s the only thing captured in a shot of the sky?!” I went on to do my own version of this Pope’s hat and added a cloud.
A very young lady colored, what had earlier in the day made for a dog’s ear, a bright fluorescent yellow section. She had deemed the abstract a unicorn – complete with horn. I took that initial head and horn and had the creature cross a creek.
I utilize an inherent feature of the peanut and make good on its resemblance to something else. For this design I’m using the ‘T’ shape on the back-side of every peanut as the front two teeth on the bottom row. In the photo, the first two are an opened peanut unaltered, the third is a peanut with the lines inscribed and the fourth represents a finished piece.
