Illustration Friday: fierce

Did somebody say fierce?

My submission for Illustration Friday's fierce is a small 2"x 2 1/2" rough for Walrus Pictures and an improved version of this was used for their videos and films.
I mean " fierce" in the snap your fingers and "You look fierce" kinda way :)

Illustration Friday: hoard

My submission for Illustration Friday's "hoard" is a School House candy box I made for a confectionary company in Boston last month. It is for students to give to their teachers at the end of the year as a Thank You for all of their hard work. I painted the original on Canson Airbrush paper and then they were printed, diecut, scored ,folded and glued. You can hoard a nice amount of sweets and treats in these candy boxes. I put a quote that I love about teachers: "No bubble is so irridescent or floats longer than that blown by the successful teacher" ~William Osler. I hope that all the teachers I know and those of you I have met on IF have a very nice summer!

Illustration Friday: Punchline

My submission for Illustration Friday's "Punchline" theme. Happy Friday :)
House of Mirth 2007

If you have not seen this then you are in for a wonderful story with a great punchline. You will need to turn off the Playlist stereo so that you don't have competing sounds playing.

Illustration Friday: Forgotten

I have always loved the story of the little boy who loves his Teddy Bear and his bear loves him and they are inseparable. Then the boy grows up and leaves Teddy behind. A bittersweet story that always touched me deeply and it reminds us to not let go of that child-like part of ourselves. Please do not forget the joy, the feelings and smells of your childhood as they will serve you for a lifetime. My submission for Illustration Friday's "Forgotten" theme is one of my Marisol greeting cards that offers a big hug and some snuggletime. Sounds pricless.
