In This Shirt

You don't have to click this but your life may well be better if you do

I've gone terribly colourful with this and may have to draw lots of brown things to recover. Or maybe it's a NEW ME. Who knows.

Illustration Friday: Surrender

So the word this week is 'surrender' and all I could think of was army scenes which really is not my thing at all. And then I thought of Alfred Eisenstaedt's photo taken in Times Square at the VJ Day celebrations. Much more me!

(Or rather Jorgensen's version, since it's public domain :P)

Illustration Friday: Chicken

One of my new year's resolutions is to draw more, and I have decided that the best way to do this is to take part in Illustration Friday every week. This week seemed like a good time to ease myself in as 'chicken' is fairly within my comfort zone. It also means my mother can have another addition to our chicken-themed kitchen.

This particular chicken is of a somewhat nervous disposition. He visits a tailor on Saturdays but wears ill-fitting suits on account of being too embarassed to point out faults in the tailor's work. He is a hasty shopper and comes accross terribly self-conscious when he feels his decision-making is being watched. He makes a considerable amount of bad decisions as a consequence. I see a lot of myself in the chicken.
