this one's dedicated to all my friends who either just had babies or are about to – and there's a lot of them! i usually never doodle people and almost never strictly in illustrator but this worked out as a first try. i think it could use some tweaking but it works for now... any advice from the IF community on this style would be very much appreciated!
IF: worry. i know it seems like i'm obsessed with large birds hanging around little towns but i swear it's the last time! i really just combined two projects together – my kutztown blog header and the IF word worry. if you've never been to the kutztown area the joke is that they call part of old main (the original dormitory) the "chicken head". anyway, i used a little more of a loose hand and very vivid colors in comparison to last submission. hope you all like it!
i caught a glimpse of this poster in the movie juno just yesterday... and if you haven't already please check out tara mcpherson's work. i can guarantee it will blow your mind! i especially love her because of how she managed to combine two of my most favorite artists (alphonse mucha and mark ryden)in a fantastic new way! note: she is going to be a speaker at icon5 this year – hope i can make it...
IF: wide. entitled "hawk mother spread her wings wide over the village".
i had so much fun making this – while outside it continued to rain and be ultra gloomy. nothing like a good 'ol drawing session for a pick-me-up on a rainy day. hope it brings cheer to others stuck in this dreary condition. xoxoxo
i did a small run of prints of mothmother and fishsister. i matted them in 5" x 7" boards and put them in little cellophane baggies. hope you like them! they are on sale now at my etsy shop!
during my search for inspiration for this weeks IF I ran into these interesting solutions to the open ended circuit from our outlets. apparently it's a power leak we don't even consider... check out Die Electric for more information.
keri smith rocks. i love her blog, books, ideas ans illustrations! so much to crush on, so little time...
