IF: Fast

I was rather SLOW to do this week's Illustration Friday topic, "Fast", because I have been sick!

Little guy pays for his curiosity - even macaques get nervous at the speed of ziplines in the trees.  ;)

Gouache doodles

Now I'm playing around with gouache on watercolour paper.  Sometimes it's hard to commit to a medium, isn't it!

IF: Frozen

Frozen musical instruments!  I don't like the cold, but I'll make the most of it.

Run Bike & Wagon

Back in April, a friend commissioned me to draw two pieces for her son's bedroom.  I finally completed them last week!  Procrastination is a frightening thing.  I'm pretty happy with the end result, however, so I hope the wait was worth it.


The bike has no pedals, because it is a "run bike", a relatively new invention for toddlers to develop their sense of balance and, theoretically, skip the training wheel phase.  Our own Bean wants nothing to do with bicycles and things with wheels, but the 2-year-old boy for whom I drew this picture is very skilled on his run bike, zipping down the sidewalk at top speeds!

IF: Flying

I'm playing around with textures this week.  I usually end up gluing my fingers together when I attempt real, tactile collage, so moving pieces around digitally is a lot less clumsy!

IF: Germs

Washing hands frequently will keep you safe from germs!
(I can't wait until Bean can reach the sink by herself.)
