Illustration Friday - simple

>> Thursday, February 16, 2006

These are the two pictures that go with the cat. I love doing little projects like this, it's creative but quite straightforward. I could have added a lot of details all over the place but I decided to keep it simple. These paintings are for the client's three children, she asked for these specific characters from the stories I illustrated for her previously. They are for birthday presents - but not a surprise - the children have already approved the sketches and seen the finished cat!

Very cute! I especially love the frog - he reminds me of one of my favorite children's books, Gorky Rises.

I love Gorky Rises too! I have that picture book. Thanks for such a nice compliment.

Friday look...a bit worn out from the week but blissfully satisfied with good work done, looking forward to a weekend full of sweet nothings (ahhhhh...)
Hahaha now I've made little frog sound too old!

Hello Needlebook,
I come to you via the Get Crafty! Flickr group, so you don't know me.

But these illustrations are absolutely gorgeous and I am so impressed with your crafts! I'd love to check back on your blog periodically, if that's ok - I'm so inspired now, I think I'm going to work on my afghan... :-)
