Kansas May be Boring, But Its State Flower Is Awesome!

I should have guessed right away that the state flower of Kansas would be the wild sunflower. I mean, sunflowers are the only really awesome thing about driving through what is an otherwise unremarkable state (at least from the highway). Sunflowers are such happy flowers and it was easy drawing this particular doodle. After I drew the outline, I realized I needed a color that I did not have, so MrE took a trip out to find markers. It just happened to be labor day when we went shopping which means that Michael’s had 50 percent off one item, huzzah! This made me feel less guilty about buying really, really expensive markers:

Golden orange: not orange like a pumpkin, orange like a sunset:

Regularly $9. For. One. Marker

We also got a set of grey Prismacolors which I am very excited to experiment with. I have one grey sharpie that I love, so I think I’ll be able to do some really cool doodles with a whole bunch of different tones of grey.

The splurge on the orange was worth it though. It put down ink beautifully and was the perfect bright sunflower yellow I needed:

Sunflower, you rock! Kansas....we forgive you for being kind of boring.

I still have a few birthday cards to draw and a very special get well card for my friend, Kyla. Wish me luck!

  1. That is so cool about the new markers. Looks like they really make a difference. Love the Sunflowers. These look a lot better than the ones in our back yard.
