1254. Happy Weekend Inspiration Card 12

"A woman can never be too packed with shopping bags!". Laugh. Well that's kind of absurd, and not very deep. But hey it fit's with today's Illustration Friday theme "packed"! For all fashionistas out there, the stylish fashion blog www.almostpacked.com also inspired me to post this inspiration card for this week's Illustration Friday theme.

I created this illustration for German magazine LISA, to an article that was wondering if shopping is in a woman's genes. How superficial. Of ourse it's not. Right?

Laugh. Have a great, happy weekend everyone!

1255. Illustration Friday - "Packed"


Always good to read lables to see what kind of nutrients are packed into your food.
(This is another educational illustration I drew for a client earlier this year. About half of my work is this type. It certainly helps to pay the bills and I must admit that sometimes it is fun to work in graphite.)

1257. Illustration Friday - "Clique" & "Little Black Ant" book cover!!!

Here are examples of "cliques"....these 3 pencil illustrations were educational illustrations I did for a publisher earlier this year.

Please also take a look at the last illustration...I just recieved this catalog image sample of the book cover I illustrated for the Soundprints book "Little Black Ant on Park Street"!!! This is the book that will be sold through the Smithsonian Institution. I am thrilled. I worked all weekend on the thumbnails for the inside illustrations. I am trying to get a file of the entire cover layout, since the illustration actually wraps around the front and back cover.

All of these illustrations showcase my "soft realistic" style. I am also working on a book in my "whimsical" style, which many of you are probably more familiar with. I will post illustratiosn from that upcoming book, too, as soon as I am able.





"Little Black Ant on Park Street" will be released in the spring of 2009, published by Soundprints.

1259. Happy Weekend Inspiration Card 11

Illustration Friday asks us creatives this time to illustrate something to the topic "clique". I created this image for Radio Energy Zurich, Switzerland, for a casting show: seeking a "Heidi" from the mountains that wants to come to the city and moderate a radio show. In any case, I feel the illustration fits to the topic well. It shows an important aspect of cliques that immediately came to my mind: We still have to listen to ourselves, even if we are in a clique. And sometimes this may mean that we have to leave the group.

When I was younger I was strongly influenced by what others were doing for a while (I was a teenager, what can I say). While that was good for me at the time, I started feeling stronger once I started to listen to my heart more and follow it. Duh - you may say. Yes, I know, it sounds so logical doesn't it? But it's not always that easy, sometimes we have to be brave when we want to follow our hearts. That doesn't just count for teenage cliques, but also for later in life. Sometimes we're stuck in a situation that's very comfortable to be in, but not necessarily following what our heart is saying.

That's what this weekend inspiration card is for: to give us power to be brave and always follow our heart.

1260. Illustration Friday: Clique



I've got a couple of cliques up my sleeve! The doggy one is a repost but I thought it was perfect for the word. And this bevy of beauties waiting to play Bingo sure hits the mark too. Which clique would you rather join? I think I'd be the mutt with the beer, crashing that snobby party!

Happy Weekend everyone! And oh, moving update. We're waiting until the spring :) Thanks for your warm, well-wishes!

1261. Illustration Friday: Island


Well.. it's super late in the week to submit my IF piece. I've been busy and just managed to finish it. At least I did take part of it this week, even if it's just for a little while.

I just love dolphins... don't you? To me they are the equivalent of a dog in the water world. :o)

1263. ISLAND

---------------------------------------------------------
When I was little, I used to think that someday I might end living on a deserted island. Whenever that idea crossed my mind, I asked God for some essential things to be found on that place; plantains, milk, wheat, tomatoes, and water…the reason behind this selection was very simple; water to drink, milk for making cheese to go with the plantains; my favorite plate! Wheat for preparing dough, tomatoes for the sauce, and these, along with the cheese, would be enough to prepare a delicious pizza, my second favorite plate! Mmm! / De pequeña muchas veces imaginé que algún día me podría tocar vivir en una isla desierta, y siempre que esa idea me pasaba por la mente le pedía a Dios que en dicho lugar no faltaran plátanos, leche, trigo, tomates y agua…la razón de esta selección era muy simple; el agua para no morir de sed, la leche para hacer queso y acompañar los plátanos y así nunca me faltaría mi plato favorito; plátanos con queso! El trigo serviría para hacer una masa, los tomates para una salsa, y con el queso ya tendríamos todo lo necesario para mi segundo plato favorito; pizza! Mmm! – y pensar que no me toco vivir en una isla pero si en un lugar donde nadie sabe que es un platano :’(

1265. hula kitty



When I heard the Illustration Friday theme this week was "island," of course the first thing that popped into my head was a vision of the mythical Hula Kitty and her ukulele accompanying mouse Ray...living on an island in the middle of the Milken Sea.

Right... am I lyin'? Try to tell me that's not the first thing that pops into  your head.

Okay, this isn't exactly an island,  but it is what came  out when I sat down to make this week's Illustration Friday entry.

My friends, welcome... to FANTASY ISLAND!

Way back in the late 70's and early 80's Fantasy Island was broadcast by ABC. Each week several people would arrive by plane to experience their ultimate fantasy. They had paid $50,000 for the experience. Each episode began with Mr. Roarke and his diminutive sidekick, Tattoo waiting for the guests to arrive. Tattoo would announce "Da Plane! Da Plane!" The plane would land and the guest stars of the week would be revealed. The highlight of the program for me was hearing Tattoo shout "Da Plane! Da Plane!" TV was kinder and gentler back then.

1268. IF- Island

Have you seen 'The cats return" from Ghibli? It's one of my favorite movies... The topic from IF remind me on one scene from this movies,
one scenes about the Cat Island, where the Baron, Muta and the crow chasing the cat who kidnapped Haru- the girl
,

they create the cat island look like a cat paw, isn't it brilliant?
And the scene is drawing so beautifully in the movie.


This is my interpretation if I could fly there and see the island with my own eyes, hope one day I could finished the colored version. Wanna come?
- See the paw?

I very occasionally participate in the Illustration Friday projects when I have something suitable. Here's something for this weeks theme "Island". It's from The Boat in the Tree picture book.

1273. Illustration Friday: Island

This is another ATC I recently made. I call it "Fiery Kitty on Volcano Island". You can see the volcanoes in the distance along with other 'island landscape' accoutrements... Hope you like! (Click here to see another one of these Marvy marker ATC's which I posted at the Sugar Frosted Goodness blog last week.)

I had another unthinkable episode of DISK FAILURE tonight (YES -- for the second time this summer - can you believe it --what is in the air??). This time, it was not my main hard drive like in July (which was replaced under warranty-YEAH!!), but instead it was my main external that I work off of (I don't usually work off my internal hard drive). I also have a back-up for my that one - my active external (the one that is now not working), but I had not backed it up in a couple of weeks. Luckily (...I guess) I have not been doing digital artwork in the past couple weeks and saving it directly to my external hard drive, but I *did* lose a slew of cropped and organized scans that I saved there. Oh well -- I can rescan, no biggie, and I could have lost a LOT more.

Thankyou Carli!
