Ilustration Friday - Dusty

Dust bunnies are not to be taken lightly. They can cause sneezing, respiratory irritation, carry mold spores, and in some people may cause asthma attacks. Did I mention they also populate like, well, rabbits? Get that vacuum out and get to work!
As a side note, I'm working on my own personal website for building my port folio on and will be looking into contacting various greeting card and book publishers about doing freelance work. If any of you who read this are knowledgable in that form of work do you have any tips or perhaps know of some good places to contact about such work?

Beach Day

I've been trying watercolor painting lately. It's still a fairly alien medium to me. Having poor quality brushes probably doesn't help all too much either, but at least I'm trying and practicing more.

Kite on the Beach

I was studying some of Eugene Boudin's paintings when I sketched this picture out. It sat around for a long time until I finally decided to attempt painting it with acrylics. I would love to find a beach that actually looked like this. :)

Illustration Friday - Chickens

This week's word is chicken, suggested by chickengirl. You should read her 2011 sketch comic book she's been working on. It's a lot of fun to see her comparison of living in two different places.

 When I was little I went out to the countryside a lot because my great grandma had an upholstry shop out there. I always really enjoyed driving by the fields of corn and wheat and seeing all the small farm houses. Although I never did see any chicken coops - plenty of pigs and cows though.

Illustration Friday - Resolutions

This week's word is resolutions, so I went with something abstract relating to people planning things to do in the new year.
