10 word love story-impossibru

Day 21: I might be going to hell for this

Day 21’s assignment:  “Write a ten-word love story. Bonus: illustrate it!”

After consultation with various people, I realized that I couldn’t do a sincere love story in 10 words. So instead I wrote this:

“On the big screen: Will you marry me?


By this I mean that if someone asked me to marry them while watching some kind of sports game among a crowd of hundreds of thousands, my response would be an emphatic NO!  I would hate that kind of attention.

Thinking that my drawing skills are lacking and that there must be other girls who have rejected these kinds of proposals, I headed to youtube. The following are comics illustrating my story. Made it in Paint which took entirely too long. I miss you photoshop.

I kinda feel bad making a comic out of other people’s rejections, especially the last one. That being said though, it is a terrible proposal  idea. I also almost changed the words “Hell No” to “As If!” to make it funnier, but was limited to changing the words since I used paint.

Day 16: Potato Print Cards

Day 16’s assignment was: “Make a unique print by cutting up a potato or sponge, and use it to stamp on a material of your choice. ”

If I had ever done a potato print, it’s been eons ago. So I decided to carve up the potato in a few simple shapes: heart & smiley faces (thanks to my sister who helped me with these ones).

Then I dug out some paint supplies and got to work making my own cards to send to friends.

For the background color I used a sponge. Then once the background dried, I added the potato stamp. Now this could be tricky because one jostling movement could ruin the entire card.

Out of the seven or so that I made these are my favorites:

Now... who will I send this to? :P

This first one came about by accident when I didn’t space my hearts evenly enough. From there it was a matter of thinking how could I fix this problem and then deciding the last heart looks lonely. Since it was forever alone, it stood to reason he was in the friendzone.

For this next one I decided I wanted to have a lot of angry smilies and one happy smiley. Since my sister is a fan of saying “Don’t drink the haterade!” I thought it would be appropriate for this card.


I like the simplicity of this. No captions needed.
