Illustration Friday: Remember

I wanted to get a sense of nostalgia and the cameo pin style came to mind. It was later, as I was working on the piece, I realized there were more levels to remembering. (Like how hard it is to pleat those darn skirts so that they fall like that!)

Illustration Friday: Polar

I was a little stymied by this week's topic. I harrumphed, "I can't think of anything except the typical 'Polar bear in a snow storm eating an ice cream cone!'"
"Marshmallow," my husband corrected, "the polar bear eats a marshmallow."
Oh yes that's much easier.
But I decided to take on the challenge of how to visually describe something that is typically a white peice of paper accompanied by a cocky little voice.

Illustration Friday: Fortune

I'm fortunate to have these two beautiful blessings in my life.

Illustration Friday: Green

I knew I'd have more happening with the Egyptians... I've been thinking I needed some new characters. Luckily a mischievous little sister showed up.
"Gross!" (He must know what those beetles eat. Either that or she just told him...)

Illustration Friday: Snap

No matter how pretty the wrapping, creativity will always find a way outside the box...

I needed a break from the Egyptians. (Don't worry, they'll be back.) I've been contemplating style and just how hard it is for me to maintain just one. So I had to break out a bit and do something different. It's been another crazy week around here and this is just how I feel. (The question is: am I hiding, or escaping?)
