Illustration Friday: "Fast"

Here is my entry for this week's Illustration Friday. When I think of "fast," I think of hummingbirds, so I did a quick doodle of one beating its wings really fast.

Done in Photoshop. I haven't been feeling too well this week, so this is a bit more rushed than normal. Nonetheless, I hope everyone enjoys. : ) Have a great weekend!

Illustration Friday: "Frozen"

Well, I know it's a bit early for Christmas, but this is how my entry for Illustration Friday turned out. It looks like a Christmas card, so I'll probably use it this year for that and add some text later off to the right side.

Anyway, the topic for this week was "frozen," so I drew a chilly little chickadee. I love chickadees, but I rarely see them in my area in California. I used to always see them in Illinois at my grandma's house when I was little, though, and I remember how much I loved watching them. Cute little birds, they are. : )

Done in Photoshop. Enjoy!

Illustration Friday: "Flying"

For this week's topic, "flying," I did a quick illustration of a happy little bumble bee carrying some pollen to flowers. Wee... looks like fun. : ) I'm not a huge fan of bees (I've always been a bit scared of them), but I admit they are sort of cute. Plus, they fit the topic quite well, I think.

Done in Illustrator. I'm looking forward to the next topic. Hope all enjoy. : )

Illustration Friday: "Germs"

Well, you don't usually think of germs as being cute, but what the heck? Here's some germ kids acting all cute. Don't let their extreme adorableness fool you, though... they pack quite a punch. Especially that blue one; he's just way too happy.

Done in Illustrator this week. Enjoy! :D

Illustration Friday: "Pattern"

It's pretty late again, but better late than never, right? It's been quite a busy week and my computer is still having issues.

Anyway, the topic is "pattern" this week and for some reason I thought of Hawaiian t-shirts that tourists and such wear. I love the floral pattern on those. Since I went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium this week (which was amazing, by the way) and saw a white shark for the first time, I felt inspired and did a quick illustration of a shark. He's pretty happy wearing his keen-looking, pink Hawaiian-patterned shirt.

Done in Photoshop this week. The hibiscus patterns were hand-drawn, but made into a brush in PS to make the pattern. Hope you enjoy! : )
