Tipple sighting

Air bubbles in a mixture of liquid water and OFS soap.

This just came in through my email. A team of researchers at the University of Minnesota has developed a "new soap molecule made from renewable sources that could dramatically reduce the number of chemicals in cleaning products and their impact on the environment." Whenever I show students Tipple in Zentangle workshops, I always tell them it looks like soap bubbles. Clearly, these researchers agree. :) Actually, the photo inspires me to switch it up a bit when drawing Tipple by adding auras, highlights, and shading.
