Illustration Friday: "Expired"

Here's another entry for IF. Sort of last minute but the idea was too fun to let pass. (Wow... tomorrow is Friday already! I better get ready)

Illustration Friday: "Subterranean"

How exciting - it finally feels like spring! And how exciting that I have gotten the IF challenge done three weeks in a row. (It's good practice - I definitely intend to keep it up.) "Subterranean" this week. Ant farms are a fun and exciting way to show kids the subterranean world. Hope this picture conveys that sense of wonder. I am trying to not overwork my pictures. (A bad habit I have that just sucks the life out of them.) I often prefer my beginning sketches. In this illustration I am trying to capture that whimsical sketchy feeling.

IF "Brave"

I've been meaning to participate in Illustration Friday regularly but have never pulled it off.  Now I've posted a picture two weeks in a row.  Feels great! I'll try to keep it up. It is great practice and is getting me to try out different techniques. Looking forward to this Friday!
