Illustration Friday: DUSTY



Too much fairy dust made everything dusty.


I  was really out of my comfort zone working on this illustration. The imagery was right up my alley, but it was rendering the image in Illustrator that challenged me. I had gotten so attached over the years to making images like this using pen and ink and watercolor that it became not just an exercise in digital illustration but an exercise in letting go. Whew!

Illustration Friday: CHICKEN

Here it is, my first Illustration Friday post ever and my first digital illustration that wasn't created for a licensed children's book. I've been really resistant to putting together a portfolio of digital illustration but resistance was futile. Illustration Friday provides the concept to illustrate and my challenge is to illustrate that concept and post it here.
