Well. According to the stated rules on the Illustration Friday site, I can still call it Illustration Friday because the idea is that while the prompt is issued on Friday, you have all week to complete the artwork.
This week the prompt word is ‘Edge’. I doubt that it will surprise anybody who knows me well that I have chosen a knife for this one.
From my beloved set of Robert Welsh kitchen knives, this may be my favourite, although the next one along with the broader blade is pretty damn nice, and it’s hard to choose between them. Come to that, the little teeny one with the short pointy blade always pleases me, too. They are GREAT knives, quite the best I’ve ever owned, and they sharpen well.
And the way that beautifully curved handle sits in the palm is a real pleasure.
I’ve done my best with this one, though all I had was copy paper and my set of Derwent artist pencils and a crappy rubber shaped like a book. Truth is, it’s been years and years since I did any real drawing and I’m out of practice. I’m hoping this challenge will help to change that!
