Another monochromatic illustration for Illustration Friday this week. :)

Tuesday, July 27, 2010


A lovely and very talented group of illustrators have launched their website, We Love To Illustrate. Their group theme for July is "Picnic", and are welcoming other illustrators to join in the fun.

Obento Picnic

I chose my favourite food-related subject: bento boxes! I often make little lunch boxes for Bean:

Chicken Karaage Bento

When I was little, I was embarrassed about bringing Japanese bento boxes to school and demanded that my mom only put my lunches in brown paper bags. I hope Bean grows up in a community where people of all backgrounds bring their bento boxes for lunch!

IF: Double

Ah, summer! Time flies! I'm keeping busy with a few projects and am going away to a friend's wedding this weekend, so I chose to go monochromatic with this week's Illustration Friday piece.

At first they were two.. then they had four!  Double the kids, double the love - at least with meerkats!

When I was sketching ideas for this Illustration Friday topic, I was on our balcony. The instant I thought of a hummingbird, a hummingbird flew by! Here's to cheerful sunny mornings!

I was definitely over-protective of my diary when I was little!

Relevant Relephant Theatre

Last month I was delighted to team up again with the ever lovely Jessie van Rijn, who hired me to do some line art for a new theatre company she has launched with the very talented Steven Greenfield and Julie McIsaac. I love the company name - Relephant Theatre!  Check them out at this year's Vancouver Fringe Festival. 

This project was fun and reminded me that I like doing line art, so I should do more of it!  :) 


PS. Happy Canada Day, everyone!
