Howdy Pardner

Howdy pardner!

Having some fun playing with an old watercolour image and giving it a fresh digital background.

I do love to dabble

I am building up my portfolio at the moment, trying to mix it up a bit and add a bit of variety. I'm meant to be getting some of the art where the main character isn't standing looking out at me, but, I do find I am drawn to them as I go through my art folders. :)

Illustration Friday _ Energy

The Illustration Friday this week is "energy"
It led me on a bit of a journey this week. I was going to do someone lifting weights or in some way exerting lots of energy. Then, in thinking about that, I started thinking about when i offered to carry my little daughters school bag and found it ridiculously heavy ....  then I started thinking about children having to carry such  a weight on their back.
All of that morphed into this picture and  this little boy is now devoid of energy after carry a heavy weight, whether that be the one on his back or a deeper one we cant see. Maybe he has to channel his energy into studying for an exam... What do you think
Anyway,hope brighter days are ahead for him.
I know this weeks word took a lot of energy to bring to fruition for me.... :)
