#Sketchbreak – An Egg Shaped Object

The Design Museum does an excellent twitter activity every Monday at lunchtime (UK lunchtime obvs!) where they set you a drawing challenge to complete on your lunch break. Normally it’s things like ‘draw your lunch,’ ‘draw a postbox,”draw the jewelry you’re wearing,’ you know, reasonably normal things to draw.

This was one of their recent ones.

Now I’m not one to shy away from a challenge, so I…. shied away from it for a week or so and finally thought that if there was any egg shaped object you’d need for an egg shaped world, it would be an egg cup!

Pencil Sketch onto a diagonally cut piece of watercolour paper, divided into 3 sections, each of which is scored.


A light watercolour wash.


Words added with old style pen and ink.


Egg world gone over with the pen and ink.


And the finished product!
