"drifting" illustration friday 6-19-09


here is this week's contribution to illustration friday. the word was "drifting" so the first thing that came to mind was a little boy "drifting" off in his thoughts while gazing at the clouds! perhaps he is wishing he was fishing?;) enjoy:)

"craving"-illustration friday 6-5-09


here is my contribution to this week's illustration friday theme of "craving"! after tossing around a few ideas in my head, i couldn't resist the classic "kid in a candy store" idea;) besides, who doesn't "crave" candy?! i knew i wanted just the back of a little boy peering into the window of a candy store, eyeing up all the treats you know he's about to beg his mom for;) i have also included my pencil sketch this time...straight from my sketch book:)enjoy:)

"adapt"-illustration friday 5-29-09


it's soooo nice to be able to participate in illustration friday this week! after doing some custom work for the last few weeks, it's nice to be back and challenge myself with the new topic "adapt"...although i can't say it was too much of a challenge;) this is my boyfriend and i...and as you can see he is a bit taller than myself;) so, in order to "adapt" to him, i am standing on my little orange step stool on my tippy-toes to reach him! cute, right?;) these are the same 2 characters in my piece for the topic of "talisman" (also done for him)! ). his birthday was this past friday (5-29), so it just seemed like the perfect way to put him into my art...especially on his birthday:) tall and blond and smart(he is a scientist)...with his german accent...i soooooo lucked out;) enjoy!
