Tally Ho

Le Grand Portefeuille

I have been drawing a lot of horsey scenes lately…horseback riding has been out of the picture for me for the last couple of years, due to growing a family, but one day I will get back to riding. And if not, I can still draw them. Or anything. 😀

Happy Friday, everyone. The illustration above is a case of finding a half-drawn sketch in a sketchbook. I liked the start, so saw it to finish. This one I actually remember starting at a coffee house…there was an engaged reader enjoying a coffee and a book. Or maybe he was studying. He was human, I remember that; however, I do so love anthropomorphization. BIG WORD for your Friday. 😀

I hope you find time for reading or whatever relaxing pursuit you desire this weekend!

Legend says it that unicorn breath smells like fresh baked cookies.

Here is my little fun submission for Illustration Friday this week. The theme word was “kiss”. I’ve been a bit stuck on unicorns for, oh, about…32 years. However, I’ve only just started drawing them again. I hope this gives you a little smile on a Thursday afternoon.

I’m not sure about this one…is there too much wild color going on? Just experimenting with layers of marks: some ink, some pens, some pencil. Then, as I do, coloring in Photoshop. I felt like I was getting into a “palette rut” for awhile, and have tried to get out of my comfort zone lately by using much brighter colors than I used to. The process is fun; I hope I never stop playing!
