It's Mardi Gras and Shrove Tuesday (also known as Pancake Tuesday), so how could I not celebrate with some pancakes and a little illustration, complete with giant glitter pieces!
I used Tombow Dual-Tip Brush Markers with water and a paintbrush (you can read more about that technique here) along with Mono pencils and erasers to create this piece. I finished it off with some hexagonal glitter in giant and regular sizes. It's tricky to glue it down in individual pieces, but with a bit of patience you get a fun sparkly effect.
Here's a timelapse video of it all coming together.
And the pancakes? I made orange and almond pancakes with orange-infused maple syrup and toasted almonds on top. I also sweetened some light sour cream with confectioner's sugar and fresh-squeezed orange juice to serve with fresh strawberries. Delish! Did you make pancakes today?
