Illustration Friday: Multiple

A friend of mine has been asking for an illustration of longhorn cattle for a long time. So since cattle always come in multiple numbers here they are. This was done digitally in an effort to mimic an ink resist style.

Illustration Friday: Theory

Theory. That's even hard to write about, much less depict non-verbally. But the regional Science Fair in Austin is coming up and my son will be part of the team representing his class. They did a hamster maze-but I only had my husband's mouse for a model...

Illustration Friday: Choose

Choosing has always been a dilemma for me... But for this topic I was inspired by something that happened the other day. My daughter wanted me to play freeze tag with her. I asked her how only two of us could play freeze tag? But she had it all figured out. We would find out who was it first by playing "Minnie Mouse, Minnie Mouse painted on her house. What color do you think?" I said "Red." She said, "How do you spell that?" Then she tapped it out on our feet R. E. D. as I spelled it out. After a few rounds of this one of her feet was still out--she was it. She chased me until she froze me. Then we sat down again and played Minnie Mouse to see who would be it next...
(this was done with watercolor crayons)

Illustration Friday: Blanket

This is a photo altered in Photoshop. I didn't feel like drawing anything out this weekend. So I was going to abandon the topic and then I had an idea. So I got my "model" to pose for me. She was delighted to throw on the blanket and chase me making ghost noises. Here is the original photo so you can see I did quite a bit with it.
