say hello to my little friends

hydrant by eversonhydrant on 2nd & Univ

I’ve been drawing fire hydrants this week, ones I have not drawn before. The taller yellow one below was drawn at the end of last week’s sketchcrawl; the stumpy yellow one above is on the corner of 2nd and University. The other two are drawn on brown envelopes – I work with graduate applications, and recieve mail, transcripts, from all over the world (well, mostly China). I like to recycle the envelopes from time to time for some drawing, and well it’s that time of year. The one above was drawn on an envelope from Southwestern University of Finance and Economics in China, and is a hydrant from the UC Davis campus (they are white and blue). The one below is drawn on an envelope from Sri Lanka, and is found in the parking lot of Davis Commons. There are still one or two styles of hydrant in Davis that I’ve not yet drawn, I’m sure!

    Ahhhhh! I love, love, love, love these! If you don’t mind, I might base an illustration off of one of them next week on my blog. I’d link back to you, obviously, I did.

    Anyways, what did you use to make these? What is the white around the bottom let hydrant?
