Illustration Friday: Superstition


A lot of Olympic athletes, including figure skater Michelle Kwan, have pre-competition superstitions they swear by. Read an interesting article about it here.

And above is my illustration Friday entry. A figure skater who always curls her tail before matches.

A pig among pigs :) Lots of really nice porcine images of late Paige, but this latest entry shoots the moon. Nice gestures, engergetic linework and colors. Is this still colored pencil outline with Dr. Martins? I'm inspired!
