sketch of monkey jack -in-the-box


Today’s sketch. I haven’t left the house yet (I work from home) and I didn’t want to do it too late (I get up very early). This one was interesting because I realized once I had started that I was going to have to try to draw the knit texture for the sock monkey body, although my eyesight is not good enough and the stitches were too small to do it exactly. I tried my best and added some darker areas since that’s what I saw. I’m pleased with it. I debated about adding the shadow, but glad I did because it anchors it to the paper. Now to get that monkey to leave me alone.
