Illustration Friday

I haven't drawn in years. How sad is that?! But recently I joined the "Illustration Friday" mailing list, and this week I bit the bullet and this is what I am submitting.

The topic is "Camouflage." This is what my 3-yo did when I asked her to hide. I love how kids do that.

I drew it on thin writing paper, using a (greylead) pencil, then coloured it with watercolour pencils, and drew the outline with a fineliner and a Sharpie. I like how the paper is wrinkled.

I can't believe I finally did it, and that I didn't try too hard (that is a big problem I have when I attempt anything creative), especially considering many other contributors are professional illustrators, and submit amazing illustrations. Hopefully the more I "have a go at" the less I'll try.

Aw, thanks! It's not great, but I have decided not to care! I love drawing, and this is just the little push I need. Plus, I love looking at other people's illustrations!
