An Evil World, Rocks & Clouds of Tobacco Smoke

Yep, it’s time for a couple more weird and wonderful words!

First up, n for nepheligenousproducing clouds of tobacco smoke. I was imagining a forest made of cigarettes when I sat down to sketch, but not sure it came out ever so well. Never mind!!

n - nepheligenous

Do you think the world is evil? If so, you could have a case of malism the belief that the world is evil.

I just love Gman’s interpretation of an evil world!

m - malism

And, we got well ahead of the game with Sketch Tuesday this week. The assignment, due Monday 6th August, is to “Sketch a rock or a pile of rocks or something you do with rocks.”

Here’s Gman’s collection of sparkly crystals and rocks:

rock - g

And Waif’s “colourful and shiny rocks”:

rock - r

And I chose a holey rock to sketch:

rock - v

For all you home educators, I do recommend taking part in Sketch Tuesday. It’s a bit of non-competitive fun; all are welcome to join; and I can recommend sketching as a lovely, relaxing way to spend half an hour or so together. It works for us anyway – meditation in action 🙂

      Yes, Gman’s rocks are my faves too. He has a bit of a penchant for shiny crystals and whatnot.
      Saw your sketching trip on your blog – lovely!

    Your first drawing reminds me of something my 3-year-old said the other day: there was a woman smoking a cigarette out her car window at a red light about two weeks ago, and Bayla said, “Mommy, that woman has something that’s making fog outside!”

I will reply to comments here on the blog, so please check back if you are looking for a response! I love hearing from you x
