Illustration Friday


Fun and games again as it's Friday, Illustration Friday.. this is called Granny Love. She's an old fairy - in her 80's. Tee-hee. (the prompt was 80's) She is part of my two minute sketches I started a few nights ago before bed.They are all on 6 by 6 inch heavyweight paper so it doesn't bend while I draw in bed.
Illustration Friday is so much fun and today I was shocked by being "Pick of the Week". Oh my goodness, what an honor! Thank you Penelope! Go over and see some real 80's sort of entries, you know, big hair, shoulder pads and what not. Oh yes! Don't forget to make your lovely heart too!

Love it! I think I might have to steal your idea for 2 minute sketching, if that's okay.

susan said...

please! steal away! ideas are made to be spread around...
it's not the same as stealing a design or image idea.
drawing is good and i always need to fool myself into it... like with IF!
thanks for stopping by all...

Oh I just LOVE you fairy!
Happy Happy New Year to you Susan, and thanks for all your lovely comments on my blog last year.
