Creative Outlets

Sometimes it feels good to just draw no matter how bad it comes out. Just doodle to your hearts contentment and not worry about making a masterpiece. Sometimes creative outlets can be something as temporary as a dry erase board!

We have been a little slack on creative meetings at work, so when we get a chance, we sometimes create whiteboard murals in the conferance room. It all started with a giant spongebob squarepants I drew at lunch one day and now, we all lend a marker and just do whatever we want. Other departments use our conferance room sometimes and they have started requesting more white board decorations! They have been pretty popular. Many times, the non-designers get in on it too!

We have the best time just sitting around thinking of stuff to draw. Our latest endeavor was to draw a Thanksgiving meal. I mean, how the hell do you draw 3 bean salad? Someone had to draw the obligatory hand-turkey and of course you can't leave out the Indians or the pilgrims who gave us this lovely holiday :) Oh, and don't forget the deviled eggs!

Here is our latest Thanksgiving Holiday Edition.(click for larger image)







Here we have an earlier board that everyone called the "druggie mural". It was a little phsycodelic, but it was so much fun. I made the colorful gradient out of dry erase marker colors (we have almost every color dry erase marker available). I also did the bird/dolphin looking animal out of the swirl.

That last picture would actually make a really cool scarf pattern. :)
