Poor Meatball by notkristina Poor Meatball by notkristina
So when you eat spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball
and don't ever sneeze!

---

This was my entry to the GGY contest for "spaghetti." It did not win, but it came close! I had to figure out how to draw spaghetti that I would like the look of, which was the biggest hurdle. I drew a lot of spaghetti in my sketchbook. And after I finished with the figure and everything here, I felt like it needed something, so I drew from my subconscious art history class mental repertoire and Illustratored-up a Mucha border, with the help of some dingbat fonts I had downloaded for a previous project.

And that's the story.

What's "Mucha" mean?

Brings a whole new perspective to that meatball song! Such a pretty meatball...See, if it were an ugly meatball, I might be inclined to sneeze just for spite, but she's so pretty, I wouldn't want her rolling around disgraced ;) Then again...I wouldn't want to eat her either. Think she'd mind living in a jar? I'd offer plenty of cheese & sauce :D
:giggle:
Annnnnyway ......I like the shading in the face & hands a lot. And that's my :twocents:

Alphonse Mucha is a Czech art-deco artist. [link]
~notkristina's picture is very similar to his work.
