Illustration Friday: "Ahead"

Well, it's been a pretty tough month for me. My family and I had to make a very difficult decision regarding our cat, Mr. Kitty. He was sick with diabetes (and some other issue which the vet could never figure out). We had been managing his diabetes for over a year with daily shots of insulin twice a day. He was doing very well for over a year, but then got very sick starting a couple months ago. Long story short, he was suffering a lot and there was very little we could do for him anymore. On April 9th, we put him to sleep. It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do.

So, I did an illustration of him to commemorate his memory, since he has gone "ahead." I miss him so much and will never, ever forget him.

Done in colored pencil and edited a little in Photoshop. I hope this counts for the topic this week. Hope everyone has a nice weekend. If you have any pets, give them a hug for me. : )

Illustration Friday: "Detective"

Here's my entry for this week's IF. The topic is "detective." It's a bit random, but I just kind of felt like drawing a duck for some reason. I'm kind of fond of mallard ducks. I'm not sure what he's searching for, but hopefully he'll find whatever it is soon. At least the dragonfly can keep him company along the way.

Done in Photoshop. Hope you all enjoy. See you next week! : )

Illustration Friday: "Linked"

Here is my entry for this week's Illustration Friday. The topic is "linked," so here are some "linked" lemurs. They are best buddies. : ) Done in Photoshop.

I wish I could have submitted something last week, but I've been going through some tough times lately and just couldn't get around to it. Here's hoping these next few weeks will be a lot more productive.

See you all next week. : )

Illustration Friday: "Rescue"

Here's my quick entry for this week's Illustration Friday. The topic is "rescue." It's sad when people throw their garbage on the beach. This poor gull got some plastic six-pack rings stuck around his neck. Luckily, the friendly neighborhood crab is there to save the day.

I wish things were like that in real life. I always feel terrible when this happens to wildlife.

Done in Illustrator this week. See you all next time. : )
