Branches in Ink – Art Drop and Dash | Week 3

Branches in Ink – Art Drop and Dash | Week 3

For my 3rd piece of art that I made in order to drop off in a public place for a random person to come across, I decided to do a simple ink drawing that was inspired by those double exposure photography pieces. You know the ones I’m talking about? A bear walking with evergreens coming out of his back; a person’s profile with mountains for hair…

You can watch the entire process in this tutorial video that I made:

Materials:

The materials I used for this drawing couldn’t be simpler: paper, pencil and eraser, and black pens with waterproof ink.

Process:

The process of this is much easier to see on the video, so I’ll just leave it here!…

The Drop:

So I ended up leaving this piece in a spot where people often walk their dogs through the woods. It matched the theme nicely, and I knew that it would be found before it was snowed on and buried!

About to drop my art!
#artdropanddash Week 3

The best part of this one was that I was contacted a few days later by the person who had found it! This was the first time that had every happened…and what a feeling! I was glowing for the rest of the day. This really is a rewarding thing to do, and I certainly encourage anyone who would like to go on this journey to try it! Maybe you don’t want to commit to a full year of doing this each week, but maybe one per month? Or maybe you just want to try it once…I think that any time we put a little sweetness into the world, it’s worth the effort.
