I belong to an illustrator’s group and we recently had an A-Z challenge. I played with all sorts of lettering… I thought of all sorts of ideas, notes jotted, ideas written out…. but couldn’t get anything on paper until we did a Zoom last week and a pretzel was one of the objects for us to draw. Many of the illustrators commented about drawing pretzels and where you could get the best pretzels or whose bagged pretzels were the best. (I kept quiet, knowing that the Philly Pretzel is the best soft pretzel, especially right out of the oven.)
I sketched a bunch of Pretzels. Tried different versions. Tried pastels, tried gouache….
Until finally, my finished piece.
I separated the different types, soft, hard, candy covered and I just had to add a pretzel bun.
