Illustration Friday-Multiple

The above image IS NOT MY ENTRY. Click on the image to see my animated entry for IF's "multiple" topic. Multiple views... It cycles over at the end, after about 5 seconds.

This is an animated GIF. Want to try something grander later, like something coming out of the box, but due to limited time, I wanted to get this done, and posted!!! I know the last frame is a bit anti-climatic, which I hope to rectify, but that's all I had time for. This piece took me about 4-5 hours of totally cranking! The line work that I do takes time.

Been super busy lately! Which is great. Seeing a lot whales and dolphins too in my free time as a new volunteer naturalist for Channel Island National Park and Marine Sanctuary. Someday soon whales and dolphins may be creeping into my work. Hmm...

*****Edit: Posted a new, more exciting version in place of the boring first one*****

Illustration Friday-Theory

Click image for a larger view.

This is my entry for IF's "theory" topic. But I NEED YOUR HELP. What labels should I put on the graph??? Send me your ideas. Things like eating veggies vs. misery, cell phone use vs. car accidents, etc. I'll revise the drawing a few days based on YOUR input!

Also, I want to apologize for not making "the rounds" last week. It was amazingly busy. Thanks for all the great feedback!

Illustration Friday-Choose

Click image for a larger view.

This is my entry for IF's "choose" topic. More hands! Imagine that.

Drew my vector lines, painted my background, blah, blah, blah. Want to know more, just ask!

Created this today, Friday, just minutes before midnight.

Thanks to all for the encouraging comments. Encouragement is so important. And in case you have polite, contructive feedback, I do indeed want that too.

And if you're reading this, I'd encourage ANYONE stopping by to leave a comment of some sort, even anonymously.l I often wonder who really stops by... Don't be a stranger.

Illustration Friday-Blanket

Click image for a larger view.

This is my entry for IF's "blanket" topic. These beautiful hands were submitted by "Forever Young", and the pic she sent I thought was great for this week's topic. Hope you can read the text. I may need to rework things a bit, but I like the idea a lot of taking "trials and troubles" and knitting them into "wisdom and grace, etc...". And I know it's crocheting, not knitting. Sue me. I like the word knitting better. Let me know what you think!
