Red Riding Hood


I like this slightly updated version of Red Riding Hood. Red is checking her watch and hurrying through the woods like she's a business woman in New York city. This was fun to do - I wanted something that was classic, but still a little different.

Illustration Friday Theme: Surprise



Dennis West thought of this poem for my illustration.  I've decided to post it--thanks Dennis!



XIV - Where Go the Boats?

Dark brown is the river,
Golden is the sand.
It flows along for ever,
With trees on either hand.

Green leaves a-floating,
Castles of the foam,
Boats of mine a-boating--
Where will all come home?

On goes the river
And out past the mill,
Away down the valley,
Away down the hill.

Away down the river,
A hundred miles or more,
Other little children
Shall bring my boats ashore.



-Robert Louis Stevenson

Blue Dragon, Blue Tear

Illustration Friday Theme:Blue

Some Dragon Sketches




I do almost all my sketches on typing paper. I like the bright white color and prefer the lightness of the paper. It makes me feel less like I have to "nail it" the first time for some reason....such strange mental blocks artists put on themselves ..... :0)

The Little Primper


Well, I have a feeling this is going to be way too late for illustration Friday this week (so I didn't post this on the IF site), but the theme (Small) inspired a drawing nonetheless, and that's what matters, right?

BTW Harry Potter 4 was very good! Lots darker than the first two, and even the third. I loved the dance scene, and the issue of Harry and Ron finding a date. Hilarious! Snape lived up to my expectations as always. He's one of my favorite characters in the movies (not the books though, he seems much darker and meaner in the books).
