My daughter's class is having a Storybook Celebration on Halloween. As one of the Room Parents, I needed to send out a food donation reminder note to the parents. I thought it would be nice to add a few illustrations to dress them up a bit. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.

Our wonderful group "Watercolor Wednesdays" is working toward improving our portfolios, so instead of a typical prompt, this time 'round we were to submit some character sketches. One of the important things an Art Director is looking for when looking at a portfolio, is to see consistency of character, and range of emotion. So, here's some character sketches I've done.

My kids and I love to play a game called "I've got no strings to hold me down," of course inspired by Pinocchio himself. When I saw that IF's prompt this week was "strings," I felt compelled to do something with a marrionette. And since my eldest daughter has a talent show coming up soon, I thought I'd tie that in as well.

The prompt for WW this week was snail. I was feeling in an autumnal mood, so I thought I'd give it a Halloween setting. I'm not happy with how it turned out though: the colors are muddy, and the little bunnies are hard to see in all the muck. Very frustrating. Urgh. The picture in my mind's eye was much cuter.
