Sweet Art: Popcones

I'm so clever sometimes...

Welcome to my creative process.

and the way I draw popcorn...is pretty similar.

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:

I'm so clever sometimes...
