Illustration Friday: GHOST

4x5" polaroid transfer, mixed media
Late again. Keeping up, but barely.
This is really, really, old. It always seemed ghostly to me. I was doing as many transfers as I could afford at one point, but this was one of the few that I framed and kept.
I had another idea, a drawing - I'm working on it, but I just ran out of time.

Illustration Friday: SMITTEN

I'm a little behind on this... but it's getting in just under the wire. And it's not quite complete. This is the underpainting stage. I am excited to finish, so I'll be sure to post it again as soon as it's done.

It's the closest I've ever gotten to a finished Illustration Friday themed piece it was conceived and executed solely for Illustration Friday. I know this shouldn't be such a big deal, but it is for me - any pieces I've created solely for IF before were either sketches or quick digital renderings. It'll be tough to finish this and start the new theme tomorrow, but I'm looking forward to the challenge.

Illustration Friday: TROUBLE

Jackal Jack: Trouble-maker.
At least, that's always the way I imagined him; Conniving and mischievous.
After my posting for QUIET last week, several IF followers expressed an interest in seeing more of the animal playing card series I did. Luckily this week's theme fit the bill. :)

Illustration Friday: QUIET

Okay, sleeping beings aren't ALWAYS quiet, but sleeping aardvarks that float in the night sky? That says quiet to me. ;)
This is something I did it as part of a four piece series of (African) animal playing cards. Ace Aardvark, Queen Quagga (a zebra), King Kudu (antelope), and Jackal Jack. I did them as self-promotional pieces.
