Get funky and get down with your friends and family this holiday season.
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!
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!
I drew and painted this for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) monthly “Draw This” illustration prompt, which was, as the title says, “Admire”.
It’s almost Friday…so, well done, YOU!
This is a piece originally intended for SCBWI’s monthly #drawthis prompt, but I got a little behind because I had other work that required my attention. Anyway, I liked the idea, and the drawing made me smile, so I wanted to finish it. This was hand drawn and digitally colored with Illustrator this time. (So if anyone needs this on the side of a bus, it can be scaled that large, without pixelating the image. I’m just saying.) There are many ways that I enjoy working, both by hand and digitally.
