Illustration Friday: Together

When I saw that this week's Illustration Friday topic was together, this was the first thing that came to mind. I did this sketch one day at work on a lunch break for mother's day.  I have no idea where the sketch is, so I just posted the instagram version with all the filters and such.

A #twoodle for this Wednesday!

Here it is! I know you've all been chomping at the bit to see another one, am I right? (Chirp, Chirp) Anyhoo, I probably over did this week, but went with "Pelican" from David Uhlig (@deuhlig) and "goggles" from Vanessa Roeder and tossed in "frog" from me for good measure. David is pretty much a king of twitter with something like 25,000 followers (how do you do it?), and Vanessa has just absolutely beautiful illustrations (psst I'm jealous)!

I had a ball mixing in real images into the sketch. Wasn't planning on it at first, but thought it would be fun to do.

A new portfolio piece!

I tried a little something new for this one. I used a few textures and images in the background, and I thought it turned out kind of nice. I may use more mixed media in the future, but we'll see.

Currently I'm still working on my mailing list. Tweaking, adding, subtracting. It's seems like it's a living creature, always changing and growing. I'm going to guess that it'll always be like that. Publishing houses are constantly changing and growing too. It's hard to keep up! 
I should have my postcard finished by the end of this month to send out sometime mid-October. I didn't get a ton of hits from my 1st one, so the next one will be a bit different.

Hope everyone likes the new work, I think it's snazzy! :)

Until next time,
