IlloFriday - Robot

I wasn't even going to do this week's topic because my allergies are driving me insane and on top of that I have strep throat. So with Coronation Street on hiatus during hockey playoffs I exhausted other TV possibilities pretty quickly and turned to drawing while I recover. This is my personal robot racing to me with more kleenex and medicine on top on the health chart thingie that came with my prescription!

Spotted - Illustration Friday

Well that was fun. I haven't done a "real" painting (many would argue that this is hardly a real painting!!!) in a long time. I'd forgotten how long it takes - it was nice and relaxing. I should do more just as stress relief.

As soon as I drew the sketch for this I couldn't believe how much it reminds me of one of my sisters when she was little. It's the hair,and the grin and the whole I-have-life-by-the-tail attitude. I was her biggest fan growing up and I guess I still am in many ways. Plus it was the method of "speed" that I chose that reminds me of her as well as she is now a scooter bike-riding diva instead of a manual scooter - which BTW we never had, I think they skipped a generation! The original story in the background is by my son, scribed by and illustrated by my niece. If you read it, I am not a princess, his dad has never been in jail nor is he a queen. Happy Easter everyone.

Wow, I can't believe I've missed a month of Illustration Friday. I've been too flipping busy. And here I am out doing the spring yard work, hahahahahaha.
