La Vie en Rose

This was a project assigned to us for Drawing 2. Our assignment was to create a realistic colored pencil drawing of junk food. I chose a cupcake because who doesn't like cupcakes. I chose this specific cupcake because it was elegant compared to normal junk food, which, in my mind, disguised the fact that it is junk food. These were hung in a gallery right next to our teachers work. She was already creating a collection of colored pencil junk food, and her boss thought it would be a good idea to have her students work up next to hers.
