Illustration Friday: Hero
Wonder Worm -- Standing up for the spineless everywhere! My first IF submission and my first fully-digital illustration, too. Not my usual style, but the Caped Crawler needed a more graphic treatment. This was a fun exercise.

This is a character I began thinking of awhile back. I thought the worm would be interesting to develop because it would be a challenge to see how much action and emotion you could pack into a character that is, after all, essentially a line. Until now, I had never gotten around to drawing him; so he owes his more concrete existence to Illustration Friday.

Pangolins is a really old piece, a good indication of where I started illustration-wise.

Chef Rat is a relatively recent. Anyone for a midnight Cheese Souffle?

Louie, Louis...this is one of my dogs. There's not a whole lot to figure out about Louie. Suffice it to say he is a sublimely happy dog. The other dog, Moose, is a more complex creature; he is given to self-doubt and anxiety. I haven't made a true portrait of him. Too painful.

I've created this blog in order to join in the fun on Illustration Friday, and this is my very first test post. Since I was a fervent journaler in my youth, this feels like one of those full-circle things. Except for the fact that this is like, public, you know.
