Illustration Roulette Two: Cynical Revolt Downtown

Posted by on


Round two has been ROUGH. Don't worry - we've got plans for improvement.


The devious words in question: CYNICAL REVOLT DOWNTOWN

I mean... maybe we're not as clever as we thought we were. But we powered through, and here's the result. 



Katherine's roulette isn't intended as political commentary, and she certainly does not mean to offend. She's currently deciding whether or not she's offended herself. 

 Oscar the Grouch: OG anti-gentrification revolutionary. 


Allison's roulette is ALL OF US. And it's so perfect for a Friday afternoon I can't stand it. 

We need a drink after this challenging roulette so this is now our chosen reality.


Katherine's tools: 

Sakura Micron size 05 to outline 

Princeton Neptune round watercolor brush size 2 to paint

Variety of Daniel Smith and Windsor & Newton professional watercolors


Katherine's process: 

Katherine knocked this one out quickly and did no scanning or editing. What you see is what's on the page!


Allison's tools: 


same as last time


Allison's process: 

yup, same


Here's what I've learned from round two: WE NEED PROPER NOUNS. We're going to add a ton of fun new words to next week's drawing so that we don't anger you all and lose you forever. 

Also, please keep in mind that you can always present your roulette without comment. If it makes sense to you, that's good enough for me, because let's be real: I'm not going to share with you the mental path I took to that drawing of Oscar the Grouch. Nope, not gonna do it. 

It's over!
