Illustration Friday - Wool

Phew... And another Illustration Friday is finished barely in time! It is not a drawing without faults, of course, because I was messing around with new ways of adding color (which I'm not sure were entirely successful), but at least I made myself do a background. :) My entry for the IF theme "Wool":

I won't lie, I definitely had "Baa Baa Black Sheep" going through my head when I was doing this. As such, you are all required to hum that song to yourself as you view the entries for this week. :D

Chump Change

I recently attended the local ADDY Awards with a group of folks, knowing that I may or may have not have a good reason to be there. Imagine my surprise when I found out that my six-page graphic novel "Chump Change" was awarded a Silver ADDY Award in the category of Visual Illustration. On top of that, we had quite a few people from our group walk away with Gold and Silver awards, and even a Popular Choice award. Talk about cool!

Even more cool, however, are the trophy's we all got today. I now have something to proudly put on display in my room, and it has a giant 'I' on the top of it! I don't know what the 'I' means, but we determined that our trophies combined can spell fun things (as not all of the letters on top are the same).

Emma's Dilemma

I just realized that I haven't uploaded anything artistic-y for a while. This is mostly because I've been in full swing making a portfolio website and cranking out base meshes for my senior project, and partly because I just plain keep forgetting to upload things. Like, say, a drawing I did for a Character Mentor assignment which may or may not have been collecting digital dust on my computer for a while now.

The prompt was to draw Generic Girl Emma reacting to something in her hand. Naturally that led to a drawing with mice leaping from hamburgers.

My thought trains require no logic to reach their destination!
