Illustration Friday - Savour

Hi all, I have just done a quick little digital sketch this week as I am am sure everyone is in a similar situation to me with lots to do at this time of year. It may have been quick but the process was as enjoyable and relaxing as it always is. I find that illustration is my meditation.
These two are really savouring the enjoyment of their mega lollipop and why not! Enjoy!

A holiday at the coast

While friends in other parts of the world are freezing their bottoms off we are enjoying moving into our summer here and so it was off to the coast for a little holiday and what a lovely time we had. One of the biggest delights for me was seeing so many dragon flies, I love them but haven't seen any for such a long time. They hold a special place for me. There was certainly no shortage of them where we were and to top it off when we came home I saw one in our backyard, she must have travelled with us :). We also saw dolphins frolicking off the coast, bunnies, birds and crabs and all sorts of wonderful seaside creatures.
There was swimming, sun, sandcastles and fresh sea air so it was very relaxing and peaceful too. I didn't get much sketching done as there were so many other things to do but I can do that now to relive that wonderful relaxing feeling. Illustration Fridays word of the week is savour and I can certainly say I  savoured the peace and tranquility of the beach! I might get a sketch done this week if I am lucky :)

Illustration Friday - Burning

This is an older illustration I had that I thought fit the profile for this weeks illustration. As I have been under the pump this week I haven't had a chance to do anything new. Unfortunately the image didn't scan well but you get the idea!


This little dragon has a bad cold and his sneezes have been awful .... Uh - Oh

My alter ego.

Ive just found out that when I click to follow websites my alter ego comes up, so its not dibbydabby but Janet Cowra and my image is a section of this little artwork.

I just wanted people to know because I think its important to show your appreciation of others work and I guess I just want those I follow to know its me!

Illustration Friday - Afterward

This little image is a follow on from the last illustration Friday topic "spent". link here. It just seemed unfair not to not allow the girl the bear so ...

Before there were tears as she so badly wanted the bear...
Her grandmother snuck back and bought it for her and gave it to her that evening.
Afterward there was much happiness as she recognised the bear would be her best friend and confidante throughout her childhood years...

Experimental 'fruit'

I have been enjoying a bit of creative time today, this is a an older quick water colour image i did one time I was playing with colour. I like sections of it as individual abstract type images.

My Little Princess' "Little Princess"

This is my baby's illustration of her favourite (currently) cartoon character on TV, Little Princess. I loved it when I saw it and she was so proud of staying in the lines with her colouring and 'I even drew her crown'. I think she did a great job seeing she is only 4.
I know I'm her mum and Mums are supposed to see great things in their kids but that aside, on viewing a lot of her artwork, I think she has a very cute and special illustrative style!
