Draw your favorite sandwich

This is my drawing for the Everyday Matters challenge this week, #156, draw your favorite sandwich. It is the usual graphite in my small hand.book journal. We had the flu bug going around our house this week so not much motivation on my part to draw or eat sandwiches. But wanting to complete this challenge I decided to draw an Oreo cookie. Well, it does say on the bag "chocolate sandwich cookies" so there ya go. And these are the 'double stuff' Oreos because we don't fool around here. We always have a bag of Oreos at our house.

I sometimes wonder what it might be like if it were my image in fashion magazines and on TV ads. All over, women would be drinking beer and eating Oreos trying to achieve that perfect figure just like mine.

Yum! Great drawing!

Sherry said...

LOL, this is a great idea, and a fine drawing too.

Your drawing's very good - I recognised it as an Oreo straight away, and we haven't had them on the shelves here in the UK for that long, as far as I'm aware!

Too funny but oh so true!

Hi Ann, this is such a beautiful drawing and so detailed. You must have had some willpower not to eat it! Thanks for tagging me, I'm about to do it, sorry about delay!x

Rita said...

Fantastic drawing Ann! I like the new diet plan that you're promoting too, it's a fad that I'll be more than happy to follow. :D

Get well soon!

Love the sketch!! (can't seem to find double stuff oreos here :( can find the really little ones though, but its not the same :P )

Laurel Neustadter said...

This is great! It looks just like an oreo ... you did a very good job at rendering it. What a novel idea for the "sandwich" challenge.

Nina Johansson said...

This is the best - and most truthful...? ;) - take on "favorite sandwich" I´ve ever seen! A great idea, and beautiful drawing! :)

Sharon said...

Very clever and well done!

Emma Pod said...

In my opinion, this is the PERFECT sandwich! Nicely done!

Nature and Me said...

Well done, Ann. Looks yummy.

Ann said...

Wow! Thanks everyone! You all are such fun and encouraging :)

Brian said...

I very much like your interpretation of what a sandwich is. ;-)

Nice drawing: the values on such a cookie are all fairly dark, so I would guess it would be tricky to get all the detail in there. You managed this well!
