Drawn: Cuppy Cake

May 8, 2012 | Drawn

I’m branching out. Brace yourselves. Now, instead of just illustrating words, I’m going to be trying my hand at objects. Here is my first attempt.. tadaa.. cup cake!

I drew it from a photo I found on the incredibly beautiful blog Call Me Cupcake. I had a bit of trouble getting the icing to look like it was meant to (with all those highlights and shadows and such) and just as I was finishing it off and outlining in black, my butter fingers dropped the black pen on the page, leaving a nice black streak up the bottom of the cup cake. A few choice words were said, let me tell you.

I tried desperately to make it disappear (and succeeded for the most part), but I think it’s fairly obvious I tried to fix it. Or at least, it is now that I’ve gone and told you about it! Just keeping it real over here.


  1. wow that is so pretty! I love that blog first of all, but your drawing is beautiful

  2. I love the way it turned out… Excellent job of leaving a little white at the edge of each swirl!
