and a graham cracker is in progress.
I'm purposely using generic brands of crackers for these. So the cheese cracker isn't a Cheez-It, the round butter cracker is not a Ritz, etc. I'm keeping my options open in case I ever have the opportunity to draw something for one of the major brands.
These generic cinnamon grahams have a slightly different 'finish' than the ones I'm used to, and although they have a 'break' scored down the middle, they don't break nicely (I had to break several, and then of course eat them, before I figured out I wasn't going to get a nice clean edge.) So I just went with it, and did one broken.
I'm exited about an idea I have of doing larger pieces, sort of botanical and sort of architectural, combined. I've had it incubating for a while, and think its time I just started. I've just ordered some botanical illustration books - by Ann Swan, Wendy Hollender and Rosie Martin. (I intended to just order the Ann Swan book, then Amazon had a "frequently bought together" link with the others, so I got them all, and got free shipping as well!) So can't wait to get those.
Meanwhile, back to the graham cracker ...
