The Gingerbread Man was fearless…not necessarily smart.
This is kind of a 2-part post. I had playing around with this fox-like drawing when this theme came up. It immediately made me think of the gingerbread doodle in my sketchbook. However, I’m not really liking the fox and I don’t really have the time to redo them together at the moment.
The Gingerbread Man is kind of a special doodle for me. It was done on a train home from Oregon. It was my first attempt getting back into drawing several years. College had left me more frustrated and directionless, and I had done a lot of creative things, but I had set aside drawing and painting. So, this was my moment of saying “I’m just going to draw for FUN and let whatever happens happen.” It started me in a whole new direction and inspired me to consider illustration.
