Hibernate : : Illustration Friday

Sure felt like hibernating yesterday.

Basically I did. Made stew. Made art. Read The Night Circus - what a wonderful book - one of those books that you want to read forever so I make myself stop so it will last longer. I'm a huge fan of anything old-time circus and magic.

Was going for a magical feel here, hope it works for you!

IF "Influence"

When my friend Jen and I go shopping we are each a bad influence on each other.

"You deserve it"
"You need those"
"They're calling your name"
"It was meant to be"
"You've been working really hard on your _________, you should treat yourself"

Sorry 'bout your face Jennifer, sometimes I nail things, other times not so much!

Obsession on this week's Illustration Friday. I must have an obsession for crazy pink-haired women since I'm always drawing them. I definitely have an obsession with food, LOVE cooking. The eating part is fun too. And I'm kind of obsessed with doing a recipe for one of my favourite sites, They Draw and Cook. And now I'm on there, woot!!!!!

Perennial or Happy 39th Birthday! Again.

This week's Illustration Friday topic is perennial. What could be more perennial than a birthday?
This will be my 8th year of being 39! Just kidding, age really doesn't bother me.

Midsummer Night

Not my favourite Illustration Friday topic by any stretch. So I just did a quick, disgruntled fairy.

Have I said how much I love Illustration Friday? This week the topic is "launch". I wonder who the little wanker is going to launch those peas at...

A huge thank you to Christine; I won - yes, I know, I never win anything!!! - a copy of her book from her blog, and I am so excited because she is so talented. Now if the postal strike would end asap I can actually get the book.

"Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you." Maori Proverb

Always liked that quote. I remember it as "Turn your face toward the sun and smile and all your shadows will fall behind you" which I like better but who am I to mess with Maori?

For this week's Illustration Friday; hope you like it.

This was for a children's book about a girl named Lily who was afraid to go to sleep. Seemed quite fitted to this week's Illustration Friday subject - asleep. Except, that well, she can't.

Illustration Friday "safari"

Not your typical safari but then they aren't a typical couple.

She never learned the lesson, if you want to stay up and party with the girls you still have to get up and work with the women.

Journey for Illustration Friday

This week's word is 'journey" and I thought I could go all "life's a journey blah blah blah" but that isn't me so just this simple little illo of a conundrum...

Toy for Illustration Friday

Oh my god, where to start? More importantly where to finish?! I love toys. I have far too many, especially retro ones, robots, heck even hot wheels. These two pics were for a clown theme but they're still toys. I'm sure I'll have to do at least one new image before the week is out.

What a perfect choice of topic for this week's Illustration Friday. Remember in grade one or two when you planted a seed in a plastic cup with a wet paper towel? It was so cool - magic even - to seem them start to sprout. I've been away for Illustration Friday for far too long so now I'm back!
