Illustration Friday: Magnify

A postcard and stationary card for Illustration Friday's "Magnify" theme. I'm a little behind this week and will be around to catch up with everyone soon. I have included a picture of my little friend Tar who came to visit me. He loves to sit on my deck and he also enjoys a little snack.

Illustration Friday: wrapped

Now this is a good word! My logo and avatar are all about being wrapped up in a bow.

But my submission for Illustration Friday's " wrapped" theme was inspired by Georgina Matich of Argentina and the lovely ATC she made for me in 2007. It is titled "Silla" and I adore it! So when the ArtHouse 10,000 project sent me the word "chair" I asked Georgina if we could collaborate on this and she graciously allowed her image to be repurposed for this show. I have been working all summer on book illustrations, a large houscape and a wine label and now summer is almost gone... it has been nice, creative and quiet. I just wrapped the silla/chair image for the September 1st deadline and I hope you like it Georgina and Thank you so much for your kindness, talent and cooperation.

Illustration Friday: impatience

Instead of complaining about "impatience" the word that is chosen for Illustration Friday's theme today, I have decided to take the plunge. I know it sounds rather drastic but for some reason "impatience" pushed me over the edge. Farewell my friends, it has been grand.
