Rainbow Art Journal – Watermelon

This was another page in which I had adhered some wine labels. I seem to always start collage layers in the centre of a page so luckily these two labels were also forming a column so you know what that means: yup, I turned it into one of my herma illustrations. The art work on the Cocomero label inspired the subject matter so I decided to draw a female figure who was the personification of a watermelon. Random fact about me: while I love other types of melon, I absolutely cannot abide watermelon. It just tastes like sugary water to me and I don’t like the fluffy texture on my teeth. I set myself the challenge of drawing a lopsided smile (I have a very wonky smile myself so that was the inspiration) and I think I pulled it off without it looking too much like a smirk.
