Illustration Friday: Vacant

In real life she doesn't look this old or sad - but after a long day when she's just exhausted, her eyes to tend to gaze over in a bit if a vacant stare.

Illustration Friday: STRINGS

Okay, I had this sketched on Friday morning but I was running around getting ready for a weekend trip and left before I could post it. When I arrived in the mountains I realized I was completely cut off from the technological world, so I couldn't post until I got back this afternoon. I really want to finish this, so I have to see if I can squeeze it in later this week. I've played many instruments in my day, but the cello was always my favorite and I felt it would be appropriate here being a member of the Strings family.
My weekend away was a nice working retreat with the New Mexico chapter of the SCBWI - gorgeous scenery and inspiring company in beautiful Jemez Springs, NM. My time there was too short.

Illustration Friday: SUGARY 1

At LAST! something sugary sweet for IF. I've been busy all summer, still am... but also determined to make time for some IF inspiration. This is a rough sketch for my concept, hoping to do a finished piece over the weekend. I hope. ;)
