Welcome to my creative process.
Today, while I was spending some time creating clever illustrations, I had an observation. It was this. The way I draw ice cream cones...
and the way I draw popcorn...is pretty similar.
See? They're both ok with it. They embrace the fact that while they share similar shapes, they are actually quite different.
But it got me thinking - could I create a real-life popcone?
Highly inspired by this idea and in need of a fun procrastination project, I hit photoshop, and I made this. POPCONE!
But then I thought it would be more magical and cute to make them tiny. So I asked a friend if she had any popcorn, and asked for two good-looking kernels. She didn't ask why, she just gave them to me.
And I grabbed my art supplies, and made a few lines. And after a few minutes I had these:
OH MY GOD! Ice cream cones for elves!
Popcones! So there is your sweet observation of the day, illustrated sweetly: popcorn and ice cream cones have more in common than you might think.
