Waffle Sundae

I was inspired to do this drawing as part of a food series I wanted to do. Like I'm sure I've said before I'm all over the place with my art. I have ideas spilling out of my head to the point it sometimes paralyzes me. I won't know what to start on first or where too start.

Anyway this one was born out of boredom while sitting at work. I carry around a sketch book in my purse constantly. You never know when the idea or inspiration is going to hit you.
This was done with graphite pencil, prismacolor pencils, and prismacolor markers. Then sprayed with primacolor fixative to perserve and protect.

Strawberry Sundae Waffle

2 cups biscuit mix (bisquick)
1 1/3 cups milk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
9 cups vanilla ice cream
6 tablespoon whipped topping
