EDM 2015 #15: Something that can be thrown/given away

EDM Every Day in May Facebook Group Sketch #15:  Something that can be thrown/given away

Preliminary sketch of Bamboo on Buddha Board.  Bamboo is a good ecological alternative for disposable products because it is biodegradable, compostable, and this high-yield plant grows quickly, without the need for pesticides and chemical fertilizers -- an easily renewable resource that produces more oxygen than trees, doesn't deplete the soil or water supplies, and saves world hardwood forests.  My sketch was water on Buddha Board. The water behaves like ink, but then evaporates back into the air, giving you a blank slate for your next sketch.
