I purchased this mug several years ago while vacationing in Lake Placid, New York. This is my favorite mug; I feel content and soothed when I drink from it. I also drew the matching sugar bowl; you can see it here. 2B pencil on 9" x 12" Strathmore 400 Series Sketch Pad Paper.
EDM stands for Every Day Matters, which is a drawing group started by Danny Gregory. Danny Gregory has two books, Every Day Matters and Creative License. I recommend both books highly. Many EDM members participate in a weekly drawing challenge. This week is the 148th challenge: Draw or paint something soothing.
