Illustration Friday: Geeky

I haven't posted in a long time! Here's a little doodle I did a while back for my ilk - bookworms and lit geeks that you'll find curled up in the shade when everyone else is playing in the sun :)

Illustration Friday: Remember

Remembering is not necessarily always a good thing - sometimes letting go of the past can be liberating and allow you to move on.

Illustration Friday: Hide

So who's hiding under there?
This was my take on the tale of the princess and the pea. I had a lot of fun painting it in my garden last summer; I really enjoyed playing with colors, textures and patterns.

Illustration Friday: Crash

Whatever mischief these little guys were up to, it definitely crashed and burnt! Now, they're in trouble...

I had a lot of fun making this piece this weekend. A friend gave me a new set of paints for Christmas and I tried them out; these are colors that I don't normally use, but I like how they turned out.
Thanks Marjo :)

Illustration Friday: Sprout

I painted this after my cat Arthur died, during one of my Pixies phases. I was sad and listening to Doolittle over and over, because it's surreal and funny and dark, and I wish I had the pipes to let it rip like Frank when I'm mad at the world. Here's to my monkey gone to heaven!

On another note, I was feeling decidedly green and sprouty today, so I made this tiny doodle on the back of a matchbox.

Illustration Friday: Superhero

When I was little, I was fascinated with the Chinese legend of the Monkey King.
He's a superhero of sorts!
Here he is, stealing empress Xi Wangmu's peach of immortality...
