Illustration Friday: "Theater"

This week's topic for Illustration Friday is "theater." I did an illustration of tanuki (Japanese raccoon dogs) doing kabuki theater. Tanuki are said to be masters of disguise according to Japanese legend, so I thought it would be fitting for them to be dressed up as kabuki actors. I call it "Tanuki Kabuki."

These topics are a lot of fun to draw. I'm looking forward to the next one. : )

Illustration Friday: "Impossibility"

I decided to do another Illustration Friday entry. The topic for this week is "impossibility." I saw some adorable ducklings over the weekend and got inspired, so I drew a duckling with a rubber ducky friend. Alas, it is an "impossibility" for Mr. Rubber Ducky to become real. They seem happy together, though. : )

It's not in my usual cartoony style, but I wanted to try something different for a change.

Illustration Friday: "Fleeting"

I'm still in the process of getting my blog together and uploading images, but I decided to upload an image for Illustration Friday. Every Friday there is a new topic posted on the website and you have to design an illustration based on that particular topic. It seems like a lot of fun and a good motivator, so I'm giving it a try. : )

This week's topic is "fleeting." I decided to do a quick children's illustration of a lion holding a dandelion blowing in the breeze. Hope you enjoy.
