Illustration Friday: Sky

Taming Cygnus
Me and My Friend Cyggy Stardust

Twinkle twinkle in the sky
Fill my wings and help me fly

You are so wonderful!  I threw a little hissy fit last week about not being happy with the outcome of a drawing, and y'all gave me such great support.  Thank you for that.  I feel better now.  I also discovered that Godzilla will improve just about anything.  See what I mean?

Illustration Friday: Water


What do you do
when what you put down on paper
just does not match what you saw in your head?
All the layers and textures in the world are no substitute for mojo.

Illustration Friday: Mirror

     "Give me one good reason why I should not gobble you up right here and now," he growled, his breath hot and putrid.  She locked her knees and prayed that she would not pass out from the stench.
     "I have a secret," she offered.  "It's a tremendous secret, really.  Life-changing.  It would be a pity if it died with me.  If you must eat me, at least let me pass the secret to you."
     "Then tell me, " he said.  He could hardly contain his joy at this unexpected pleasure.  A tasty morsel and a juicy secret.
     "Oh no," she tutted.  "I cannot simply blurt out a secret as big as this.  You'll have to come closer.  I need to whisper it to you."
     Lured by the promise, the monster leaned in closer and closer until she could see her own reflection in his enormous, dark eye.
     "This secret, is it the truth?"  His words dripped in anticipation.
     "Oh yes," she said.  "Cross my heart and hope to die."

Illustration Friday: Book

She went to great depths trying to find a nice, quiet place to read.

My my my, it feels like ages since I've been here, and even longer since I've done a personal drawing just for fun.  Wow, so dusty and empty here.  I can practically hear my own echo.





It might take me some time to wipe away all the cobwebs and get back into the swing of things, but it sure feels good to be drawing again.  Hope you've been fantastically well.  Thanks for stopping by!
