Illustration Friday: MOON


I've been out of commission for a while now, over a month in fact. I'm good and all, but I've been distracted. Loads to think about, plans to make, need of a summer break - of sorts.

So I return with another existing work: AquaLuna. This character was developed for a children's book dummy I started but never finished. This year it was accepted into the Colored Pencil Society of America's 15th Annual International Exhibition in Bethesda, MD - open now through August 25th. The Opening reception is August 4th, 7-9pm at The Mansion at Strathmore Gallery, 10701 Rockville Pike. I'm not going to be able to make it, but if you're in the area check it out!

A very lovely image. The fish and the waves have such detail, and there's so much vibrancy to it.
