What, no remote?!?


This week's Sunday Sketch is a mixed media drawing I created for Illustration Friday's 'old-fashioned' theme.

Be sure to stop by Sophia's blog to see what other Sunday Sketchers have been up to!

  5. Oh the memories this beautiful tv stirs up! When I was 4 our tv only had 2 channels in black and white, and I would patiently wait for Tonto and the Lone Ranger to come on the screen and rescue me from my bratty little sister.

    Love the sepia tone. But then I love everything you create :)

  8. Hi Kristin,
    I love the earthy tones you use on your paintings, and really liked this one, it's really cool, especially the note on what, no remote? hahah it's great. I was inspired by reading your "about me" :)

  9. What a good idea for "old fashioned!" Yeah, the good old days when you had to get out of your chair to change the channel....of course there were only a few channels to choose from. Wow, how things have changed!

    I think your sort of sepia tones make a nice extra statement for the theme, as well.

    Thanks so much for following my blog and leaving such a nice comment.

    Great drawing of an old-fashioned TV! The paper treatment reinforces "old-fashioned" very well!

  18. I think I actually did have a tv just like that, in fact it was in black and white, I remember seeing the wizard of oz and didn't even know that it started in black & white and then turned into color

    great drawing, I like the textures

  19. Very nice! It's funny that I don't think of TV's as being old-fashioned, but I guess this one is. It's a lovely piece. The muted colors add to the "old-fashioned" sort of feel....
