Twist IF

Twist ATC

I haven't been very creative the last couple of weeks. Luckily Illustration Friday is there for inspiration. Here's what I did for this weeks theme, Twist. A martini with a twist is the first thing that came to mind. I don't drink them, but I do think they're pretty. Thanks for checking in.

Camouflage IF

Camouflage ATC
Here's what I've done for this week's Illustration Friday challenge. It was inspired by this photo. I was attracted its mystery and innocence. A wonderful combination.

Better Late Than Never

Beach Beauty ATC
Well here's my submission for last Friday's Illustration Friday theme, Suit. I know it's late, but I thought I post it anyway. This is the first of four cards I'm making for an At The Beach ATC swap. It was inspired by this sweet photo. I may do all the swap cards like this one - charcoal with an element of the composition in color. I haven't decided firmly yet. Check back and see.

It's been awhile

Dell came through and replaced my laptop's power cord, so I'm back in business scanning and posting my cards. Here's what I've done since I last posted.
Mr. Serious ATC
The photo this was inspired by was a little distorted, but I exaggerated that a bit. Really pleased with the effect.

Khumdung ATC

This card is based on a photo of a co-worker's dog. His name means Golden Dog in Korean. When presented to her, she said it looked just like the him.

Nathaniel ATC

Added a little yellow pastel to the straw hat on this young Amish boy.

That's all for now, except I want to send out birthday wishes to my sister... Carla, you're the best. Have a great one!!

I'm In Love

Piggy ATC
I wish I could bring him home, but he already has one. Once again, this ATC was inspired by a flickr photo. There are any number of precious photos of this dog, so look for more drawings of him in the future.

Paradise IF

Paradise Motel ATC

Illustration Friday theme of the week is Your Paradise. I can't say this is my idea of paradise, but I was trying for something a bit stylised. This was inspired by this photo, a pic of the Holiday Motel on the Vegas strip. I think it also fits well with the FineArtsATC's Motif Challenge of Dots.

Yoga/Meditation ATC Series

Here's what I've been working on this weekend. They were all inspired by Flickr photos. It's my first ATC series. They're for a swap I've signed up for with ATC_ART_EXCHANGE yahoo group. They're off in the mail tomorrow to Finland.
