Illustration Friday: CHOOSE



So much for turning over a new leaf... Freelance life is a lot more busy and hectic than I expected, I guess. I thought I'd have MORE time to blog and make artwork, but it seems I'm always running around, doing work, getting more work, checking up on clients, you name it! Not that I'm complaining, I love it. But I do miss this stuff - and I want to do more. I haven't been posting as I'd like. But I thought I'd post a few of the pieces I've done in the last few months, as a catch up of sorts.
This piece was done for a friend as a christmas gift. She loves her Hero (short for Herododus, father of history).

It's interesting the theme this week is CHOOSE and not CHOICE. Depending on interpretation the difference can be small or large. I'm choosing to post this, because it's what I have and it's been far too long. I know it's weak and there's NO concept whatsoever, but I gotta get back in the game some how! Encourage me folks - I needs to do NEW work!

I like this a lot. It's not overly cute, and I think the warm hearted nature of the pooch comes through.

I love the contrasting colors you've used. Very pretty.

I agree with the comments above, "colors are great" and "not overly cute" is a winning combination.

I love the composition of this, just showing part of this beautiful dog and a portion of the butterfly that caught his attention. This piece certainly has mine ;)
