Illustration Friday - Toy

This is Princess with a few of her favourite things. she knows she is on a good wicket. She is a very lucky girl.


I think I will have to call myself the 30 - 40 minute illustrator. All I seem to have time for these days are quick illo's but it keeps the creative juices flowing and I'm sure it is excellent practice and builds my practical skill. Kudos to Ed Emberley too, his images have influenced Princess and I am loving his amazing work and it brings memories of childhood, I only had one of his simpler books with faces to draw but I loved that book. Our daughter got one of this books for her birthday.
Have a great week everyone.

  5. Thank you for visiting my blog, Janet. Your comment really touched me - it was a compliment of the highest order. I'm with you ... I'd rather believe in critters and fairies. Now that I'm poking around on your blog, I see the source of your inspiration at her birthday party. (I bet the cake was perfect!) Your TOY illo is very charming. The purple monster makes me laugh.

  10. Thanks everyone for you cool comments! Princess is glad you are suitably impressed by her collection of poochy chew toys.
    I think I should stick to 30 – 40 minute sketches, I wonder if it helps me to not be overly fussy; I just get in and do it. I don’t know, if I have time I will try a slower pondering sketch and see what I find.
    It’s all good and all fun, made all the better by lovely comments and visits like all of yours!
