Zip it Up!

This week’s sketching assignment was to draw something with a zip. Just lately, whatever the assignment, Waif has managed to find a way of sketching one of his collection of soft toys. This week was no exception, as he sketched “Zippy” (who my British readers may remember from the TV show Rainbow in the 1970s…)

Gman found a pencil case that is entirely made up of zips (11 in total!) and sketched that:

I went with one of Waif’s snow boots. You’d think, with it being “spring” and all that we’d have been able to put these away til winter, but today it snowed again. Brrrr.

    A very fine rendition of Zippy. We have an old hand puppet version of him too. Lovely drawings from everyone – what a great exercise.

  3. I love that you all sketch. And I super love how excited I got when I saw Zippy. I loved that programme when I was little. 🙂

  5. Lovely sketches all round – getting into that habit of looking really carefully has really paid off.

    You did a great job on the boots. I love the idea of a pencil case made entirely of zippers!
