Illustration Friday: "E" is for...


"E" is for Entomologist. My cousin's husband is an entomologist. So in tribute to him...maybe little John here will grow up to be one too. Although, which of us didn't put a few bugs in jars. (This is another illustration completed for "Already Asleep.")

  4. Thank you Julie for your compliment. I learn to loose up my line quality by forcing myself not to use pencil. I draw directly with ink. It forces me to think ahead before I put down a line. It's a bit hard at first, but once you used to it, it's a lot of fun. :) Your craftmanship is excellent, I am sure you will adapte the ink lines easily.

  11. So sweet, my teeth hurt. I have a nephew who pretty much refuses to walk outside. He would rather crawl around on his hands and knees, examining everything around him. You captured that sort of personality well.
