Sketchbook Project: Knives

Well, maybe it wasn't half but this is my forum so I'm allowed to exaggerate. It was a fair chunk of change and I balked at the price. Now they are one of the best tools in my kitchen.

For this illustration I used the cut outs from the flaps on the previous page and drew some of our knives. I put a pink and grey pattern in the background and used the look of a receipt for the text.



  1. I always get a laugh and a charge out of your artwork...keep it coming!! Its great!
    I included your blog on an appreciation list on my FB page..its a new angle on I hope more people will enjoy your artwork like I do :)

  2. Thank you so much for your kind words & appreciation on FB. I've been trying to dedicate more time to the sketchbook & the girls so my twitter time has been lacking & I feel as though I'm missing out on our chats. I'll be back eventually, though. :D

  3. I swear one of the reasons I keep struggling with my tendonitis and shoulder issues is because we have a set of ABSOLUTE CRAP knives. Seriously, they dont even slice bread... Knives are on my christmas list lol. BTW: great job getting so far in your sketchbook project. I havent even started mine :-S because of OOAK - am planning to spend december 15- Jan-10 doodling away like a mad woman...

  4. I had to have a batch of good knives to realize how terrible our old ones had been. No more squashed tomatoes!

  5. Agreed! Good knives make the world of difference in the kitchen. We received a block of knives for our wedding - we also were told that receiving knives for a wedding gift is bad luck for the friendship (of the giver and the receiver). I can say that it isn't true - in fact I think quite fondly of them often when I'm preparing meals! I'm loving these sketchbook topics and your illustrations are really great Jeannine!

  6. I had no idea that was bad luck! I'm with you, I don't believe it and would be grateful to receive a set.
