How to Draw a Chef Hat

A chef is a trained professional cook, often the director of the kitchen. Chefs are often recognized by their chef's whites, or traditional uniform. The white signifies the cleanness of the kitchen, as any stains would be readily visible. The apron and double breasted jacket, which is reversible, help keep the chef's white clothing clean.

The chef's hat, or toque blanche, may be the most recognizable part of his uniform. The toque is a hat with no brim, dating from the sixteenth century. The hat serves a practical purpose - preventing any hair from falling into the food - but the height of the hat also indicates the chef's rank. The many folds of the chef's hat - often one hundred in number - are said to represent the many ways a good chef knows how to prepare an egg.

In popular culture, chef hats are used to represent fine dining and fancy foods. They are especially indicative of French cuisine. Even children often recognize the meaning of the chef's hat in cartoons, for example, Chef Louis in Disney's The Little Mermaid (1989) and the many chefs in Ratatouille (2007). Modern art and home decor often center on French or Italian chefs.

How to Draw a Wink Emoji

What does it mean to wink? A wink is defined as "a facial expression made by briefly closing one eye." It is analogous to blinking, though only one eye is used. Typically, a wink signifies "hidden knowledge or intent." Winking may also be used to indicate joking, trickiness or distrust, or romantic interest.

In printed text, the semi-colon and parenthesis together - ";)" - were used as an emoticon to symbolize a winking face. In 1999, a Japanese cell phone company launched the first of the hugely popular emojis - small cartoons that represent emotions, places, objects, or the weather. The winking smile was one of them.

The yellow face emojis are based on the classic smiley face, which originated, perhaps independently, in three different advertising campaigns during the 1960s. Prior to this, "smiley faces" and "sad faces" with varying degrees of similarity had appeared many times over. At least two movies, Lili and Gigi, had used smiley faces on promotional posters. Others were hand drawn on letters and cards. The oldest occurrence dates to around 4,000 years ago, a painted sketch on an ancient clay pot.

Today, smiley faces, winking smiles, smiles with hearts for eyes, and many others are widely used in art and popular culture. In decades past, smiley faces most often populated t-shirts and button pins. Now you can find shoes, toys, kitchen gadgets, coffee mugs, jewelry, and more that feature these characters. In 2017, emojis starred in their first animated feature film, The Emoji Movie.

Would you like to draw a winking smiley face? Doing so is easier than ever with the help of this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial.

Did you know? While we often think of cheerleaders as women today, the first cheerleaders were men.

Roughly 95 percent of today's cheerleaders are women. Lots of anime cartoons also feature cheerleaders.

How to Draw a Chain

"Every chain has got a weak link."
- "Chain of Fools" by Aretha Franklin (1968)

Chains are a ubiquitous part of popular culture. Chains are used both literally and figuratively in songs such as Aretha Franklin's "Chain of Fools" and Sam Cooke's "Chain Gang."

Chains are used to make jewelry ranging from delicate to robust. Hip hop and rap musical artists have popularized large chain necklaces.

The chain also lends itself to common maxims. For example, the phrase "the weakest link" references the links of a chain. Sometimes this phrase is rendered "a chain is only as strong as its weakest link." This is usually used to refer to groups of people or things that can fail if one member does not succeed.

Chains themselves have been a common tool since antiquity. The coil chain is the oldest and most common type, having been in use since at least 225 B.C. It is made from straight metal bars that are wrapped around one another and bent into oval shapes. This tutorial represents this type of chain.

Chains have a variety of uses. since medieval times, chains were used make jewelry, to decorate clothing, or to indicate rank or office.

Others were used for restraint, such as the "ball and chain," which was used to keep a prisoner from escaping. This type of chain often appears in older cartoons, such as the Looney Tunes. Handcuffs today serve a similar purpose.

Other chains were used connect anchors to ships, to connect train cars or other vehicles, to lift heavy objects, or to restrict access to objects or places.

How to Draw a Piñata

The piñata often serves as a symbol of Mexico. These colorful, candy-filled stars, animals, or cartoon characters are regular features at parties, called fiestas.

A game is played in which a child is blindfolded, spun in circles, and asked to hit the piñata with a stick. When the piñata breaks and the treats fall to the ground, the laughing partygoers scramble to collect it.

Some historians assert that the piñata's origins lie in China. As part of the New Year's celebration, figures of cows were covered in colored paper and filled with five types of seeds. The cow was broken open with a decorated stick. Then, the paper was burned and the ashes kept for good luck.

During the 1200s, explorer Marco Polo may have brought this item back to Italy where it gained the name piñata from an Italian word meaning "fragile pot."

In Spain, the piñata entered the Catholic custom of Lent, and it traveled to Mexico with Catholic missionaries during the 1500s.

There, it merged with an existing Aztec tradition that honored the sun god. The seven-pointed star-shaped piñata was used to symbolize the struggle against "the seven deadly sins."

Later, the piñata became part of birthday festivities as well as posadas, the nine days leading up to Christmas. Today, they are used during a variety of celebrations.

How to Draw a Centaur

The centaur is a legendary creature of Greek mythology. The centaur was purportedly part horse and part man. Many were said to dwell in the mountains of Arcadia and Thessaly. Centaurs were depicted as drawing the chariot of Dionysus, the god of wine, or being ridden by Eros, the god of love.

Chiron was one of the most famous centaurs in Greek myth. Unlike his wild, violent brothers, Chiron studied medicine and was known for his wisdom. According to legend, he gave up his immortality to save Prometheus and then became the constellation known as Centaurus.

The centaur is sometimes confused with Satyr or Faunus, each having the upper body of a man and the lower body of a goat. These creatures were associated with the gods Dionysus and Pan. The minotaur similarly had a man's body and a bull's head.

How to Draw a Funny Taco

Fast food chains such as Del Taco and Taco Bell have popularized the taco, and it is now synonymous with Tex-Mex food. Tacos are a traditional Mexican dish made by wrapping a tortilla around various fillings. The dish itself predates European colonization of Mexico; early indigenous peoples ate tacos filled with fish.

Tacos vary by region. In the United States, tacos are often hard corn tortillas filled with ground beef, sour cream, and lettuce. Mexican street tacos typically consist of a variety of meats - beef, chicken, pork, sausage, or seafood - folded into a double corn tortilla and topped with onions, cilantro, and lime juice. Breakfast tacos may be filled with eggs.

The origin of the word taco is much disputed, but it is possible that it comes from the use of the word meaning "plug" in the mining industry. Explosive "plugs" or "tacos" used in mining were papers folded around gunpowder.

How to Draw an Angel

Today, angels in statuary or art are typically depicted in one of two ways - either as females or as chubby infants. Did you know, however, that this has not always been the case?

Many angels depicted in antiquity were drawn as winged men. This can be seen in the art of Egypt, Assyria, and other regions.

Early Christian art also contained male angels, relying on the Bible's descriptions of these beings - such as "the man Gabriel" described in the book of Daniel and "Michael the archangel" of Revelation.

It is interesting to note that in the Bible, angels are described as having no gender, yet male in form.

This was reflected in Christian art for centuries, but began to change around the time of the Victorian era. During the 1800's, artists began to paint angels with long hair and more feminine features.

Would you like to draw your own cartoon angel? You can, using only a pencil, a piece of paper, and this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial. You may also wish to have handy an eraser and something with which to color.

Images of skulls and bones have long been a symbol of death. Consider the "elephant graveyard" in Disney's The Lion King. Skeletons are common decorations during holidays such as Halloween, and many people consider the appearance of a skeleton to be frightening. Skeletons are also used in a medical and anatomical education context.

The rib cage, as pictured in this drawing guide, is located in the chest or torso of humans and animals. The rib cage protects vital organs, such as the heart and lungs.

Ribs can also be found in literature. For example, the Bible book of Genesis describes a rib being taken from the first man in order to create the first woman.

Did you know? Artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo performed human autopsies, or examinations of a dead body. They did so to improve their drawing skill and understand human anatomy better.

The autopsy, which means "to see for oneself" in Greek, allowed them to understand how the bones and muscles work together to support the human form.

Corks used as stoppers for wine bottles are produced from the bark of the Mediterranean cork oat, and Aleppo oak is used to make ink. The wood of oak trees is also used in furniture manufacture and construction.

Since ancient times, this noble plant has appeared in art and symbolism. In Greek mythology, the oak was considered sacred to Zeus, and in Norse mythology to Thor. Representing strength and endurance, oak leaves and acorns appear in coats of arms, architecture, coins, and seals. In 2004, it became the National Tree of the United States of America.

Did you know? There are many plants labeled as "oak" that aren't true oak trees. One example is the itchy weed known as "poison oak." This plant was named such because of the shape of its leaves.
