Illustration Friday - Polar

This is my friends’ favorite illustration. While working on the polar bear I thought of the way that ice can look almost black. We’re told that snow is white but is it really? It’s just an interesting approach to color that seemed to work here. You can see a close up on my website.

Illustration Friday - Green

I added this new green Sat. morning. I love sepia. What do you think of this muted green?

Here’s a fun one. The original is simply graphite pencil, but I colorize it in Fireworks. I’m still learning the program and love opportunities to try new things. I’m wondering if people prefer b/w or different tints. A few weeks ago I wanted to post RED but I didn’t have a blog yet. What do you think? The images were created as b/w portfolio pieces. Maybe I should do something more with them.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a great week!

Illustration Friday - I Spy

I Spy…Mick in the middle of a battle between goodies and evil.

This is from a story I started a few years ago. The manuscript has gone through some changes, but the original drawings seem to have hung on. Mick in his Mick McTime Time Machine is able to speed up time, and now “kids everywhere can have their cake and eat it too!”

I hope you all are enjoying the weekend.

Illustration Friday - Wired

Hello everyone. Thank you for such a warm welcome to IF* on last weeks post, “Hide”. This is a sketch from a book that I’ve written and illustrated called The Emperor’s New Cup. Hopefully I’ll find a publisher for it soon…then I could be the one acting “Wired”.
