Green Shoe

One of my new ACEOs, or as I like to call them, my "tinies".  The shoe is from my imagination.  I wish it were real!  Ink and watercolor.

Illustration Friday: "Glow"

For this illustration my idea was to show a little something...without really showing anything!  It's done in pen and ink and is small, ACEO size 2.5" x 3.5".  I've been thinking a lot about ACEOs lately and I'm very interested in doing a collection of them to sell.  This is the first time I've drawn directly on a trimmed card-sized paper.  Usually I've drawn on a larger size and cut it down.  This worked just as well I think but I might feel differently when I try one right to the edges with color!

Illustration Friday: "Explore"

There's no need to rough it in order to explore!

I love Valentino's haute couture.  Click here to see the dress I chose to draw.  I used Pentel brush pen and watercolor on Arches watercolor paper.

Another 1920s girl sketch

Actually it could be argued that the title of this post is wrong since there are two girls in the sketch.  But the one on the right was the first attempt and didn't look right so....she doesn't count in the title.  I could have Photoshopped her out but I think she's kind of interesting lurking there!

Heart to Heart

I used to draw angels all the time when I was young because drawing the wings was so much fun.  I don't know why I stopped....I guess perhaps I've been drawing wings on birds instead.  But I also love drawing
fairies!  So these little angelfairies are a bit of both.  Plus they have great hair!  I call this illustration "Heart to Heart".  It's ink and watercolor.

"Heart to Heart" is available as a print and more in my shop here.

1920s Girl, WIP

Lately I've been sketching lots of girls from the 1920s.  I think maybe
it's because of the dramatic eyes and lips, and the cute, wavy hairstyles!
This is from my sketchbook.

"Sometimes" is today!

The title of this illustration is "Sometimes", but this morning was so frustrating that I should rename it "Today"!  I was online trying to set up a new place to show my work.  Needless to say, it wasn't working.  So I scrapped the whole idea.  AARGH!

"Sometimes" is available as a print, pillow, t-shirt and more here.
