Illustration Friday: Contagious

Wanting to keep it positive I thought of laughter. What can be more contagious than laughter, especially if it is transmitted by big brother tickles?

I had a color issue with this one. I was using a cool purple for the shadows and it didn't give the right mood. So I warmed up the shadows and the background.

Illustration Friday: Parade

Well lots of images come up for Parade, but I pulled from personal experience on this one. I was the Torrance County (NM) 4-H Horse show/Rodeo Queen in the mid 80's. In one of the county parades for some reason they put me right in front of the Honda Gold Wing club. Needless to say my horse was not thrilled about having all those gunning motorcycles behind him. But that wasn't as bad, in his mind, as the State Fair Parade with the clown carrying a big cluster of balloons.

And just for grins heres a photo of Nifty and I all decked out right before a parade.

Illustration Friday: Hierarchy

All I can say is not all work is portfolio worthy... I realised I have a lot of kids and animals, but not a lot of characters. So I need to practice. This is the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. She's the top of the heap in the card hierarchy in the story.
