Illustration Friday: Fast

Contradancing can be fast and furious. Here's the button design for our dance weekend in November. It will be 2 1/4 inches around, and have different colored backgrounds. People will write their names in the center with a permanent marker.

Oh dear. It's probably time to pass off the button-making duties to someone else. This is for our local contradance community's annual dance weekend. People write their name in permanent marker in the center of the button, and wear it all weekend. But I'm putting less and less time into designing them, and am less and less happy with the results.....

Dog might ask yourself...what kind of card does one make when one's ex-husband is getting married. It's a tough one. They're both dog people, and here was a dog drawing I'd started along time ago for some Illustration Friday topic--I don't even remember what--that I barely got started on. So I spent an hour or so with colored tissue paper and liquid gel medium. This scan does NOT have the colors right AT ALL. I don't know what the deal with my scanner and colored things is. But this is it. I folded it down the middle, cut two pieces of black paper for the inside, and wrote what I hope was an appropriate message.

Illustration Friday: Flying

Their souls are flying from their bodies.

It looks like this scan is way too light...yup, it is. I don't know what happened. You can't even see the purple in the picture. But I'm too tired to try to rescan it, so this is what it is.

Illustration Friday: Germs

Finally! On time, even. I'm trying to get back in the swing of things. I've been sketching in my sketchbook, but not making anything more "finished", not that you could really call this finished, but it's more detailed than the quick sketches I've been doing.

This man has a germ of an idea. It will come to fruition sometime in the near future.
