The spider’s touch, how exquisitely fine!

27. Disguise

chameleon new 450

COMPUTATIVE CHAMELEON

For some reason I felt compelled to redraw this little guy from a few years ago when the Illustration Friday word was “adapt” Perhaps more appropriate? You decide.

Well, it  must be karma… get it… karma karma karma karma karma chameleon. No? Oh come on! How can you see the word chameleon without that song going through your head?

Unless you’re under 30.

Nevermind.

28. Search

meerkat searching 450

Mitzy, Manny and Mo took eagle lookout duty very seriously.

………………………………………………………………………………………

The Illustration Friday word of the week is “search.” I had a hankering to draw meerkats today, so these little goofballs showed up.

29. Time

time running 450

RACE AGAINST TIME

Despite strenuous training and conditioning, Murgatroid found it difficult to beat the clock.

The Illustration Friday theme for this week is “Time.” So, since it is 11:00 pm on Thursday, with only an hour  left to post… time is running out!

30. SkADaMo 2013 Day 15

retail store squirrels450

“Retail Store”

“Does this tail make my butt look big?” Matilda queried the patient sales squirrel.

This is what popped into my fevered mind when I saw the Illustration Friday word of the week was “tail.”

Also, just wanted to mention that I’m getting some pretty cool ideas brewing for PiBoIdMo. A little excited.

Well, I may be falling slightly behind, but my fellow SkADaMoers are kicking some serious squirrel butt over here.

33. IF: Underwater

underwater450

“We’ll eat like kings tonight, Blotch!” Orville shouted excitedly to his trusty pooch.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Illustration Friday theme this week is “underwater,” and although this may not be the most original solution for the prompt, I just had to get this image out of my system.

35. IF: Totem (late)

bremen animals for totem 450

THE BREMEN TOWN MUSICIANS

The donkey, the largest of them, approached the window and looked in.

“What do you see, Gray-Horse?” asked the rooster.

“What do I see?” answered the donkey. “A table set with good things to eat and drink, and robbers sitting there enjoying themselves.”

“That would be something for us,” said the rooster.

“Ee-ah, ee-ah, oh, if we were there!” said the donkey.

Then the animals discussed how they might drive the robbers away, and at last they came upon a plan. The donkey was to stand with his front feet on the window, the dog to jump on the donkey’s back, the cat to climb onto the dog, and finally the rooster would fly up and sit on the cat’s head. When they had done that, at a signal they began to make their music all together. The donkey brayed, the dog barked, the cat meowed and the rooster crowed. Then they crashed through the window into the room, shattering the panes.

……………………………………………………………………………………………

A couple of weeks ago the Illustration Friday word of the week was “totem.” I’m telling you, time flies, because I’m just getting to it up now. Better late than never, I suppose!

37. Illustration Friday - Hidden

This week's topic on Illustration Friday is 'Hidden'. This is my entry. A bit too quickly done - I could've given the eye a bit more attention. Ah well, this is it for now.

40. Illustration Friday - Lush

This week's prompt on Illustration Friday is 'Lush'
This is my entry:
The background wash is watercolour, the drawing is made with colour pencils.

I'm having fun on Instagram, showing progress pics there while I'm drawing and asking people to guess what I'm drawing. It's so much fun to interact this way and get direct feedback on my drawings!
You can follow me on instagram too: http://instagram.com/koosjekoene#

41. IF Hybrid

flying granny color 450Granny/Superhero hybrid. For Illustration Friday.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………

Finally peeking my groggy head up after a bit of time underground, building a new portfolio. Squeaked by just in time for the SCBWI L.A. Summer conference, from which I just returned.

I’d love to share some of the inspiration and new focus with y’all, once my head ceases to spin, that is!

It’s great to be back in the blogging seat!

50. Tension

 

Suspendrobertabaird1
Proof that cats do indeed watch television.

After his people watched the entire “Mission Impossible” weekend marathon, Miles, wanting to get “in touch” with the wild feline within and sneak up on his food, took the matter into his own hands.

If only he hadn’t miscalculated the height from the kitchen light to the floor, he’d be in kibble heaven right now!
