Illustration Friday – Hoard

I really enjoyed this week’s topic. A crow was the first thing to come to my mind. I love watching them in the backyard- they are so smart and cautious. We throw them peanuts and watch them fight it out with the Blue Jays…

For this image I scanned in a sketch and then colored it in Photoshop. I used an old collage for the background and I was trying to give it the feeling of twilight.

Illustration Friday – Punchline

“The weather is here. Wish you were beautiful.”

I’d like to raise a frosty, fruity glass to the first day of summer! Yay, it’s finally here!

For this image, I started out by painting the background. Next decoupaged on some tissue paper to add transparency. After drawing the drinks on vellum, I added paint and more tissue paper to the back of the vellum images and glued them onto the background. After a quick scan into the computer, I did some color tweaking and added the text and postcard elements.
