New Illustration for Illustration Friday

It's been a while since I've created anything fun for myself, and especially in Photoshop (I've been using Illustrator a lot).  Illustration Friday is a weekly online illustration contest and blog. It's a great way to keep up your practice and to do something that inspires you.  So here it is.  The word for this week is "sizzle".

Strange Creatures - New Illustrations

I was a strange kid.  Obsessed with certain animals, the stranger the better.  I loved llamas, angler fish, anteaters. My favorite cartoon character was the anteater on the Pink Panther.  So, here is a little project that I've been working on that may appeal to those of you out there who are a little, um....unique.

Seattle Skyline Promo

I've been working on a new promotional mailing/e-mail to send out.  I like the idea of creating a more personal art piece that distinguishes me.  I decided that it would be fun to create a skyline of Seattle (where I live) and also include some hand written type.

Another reason why I thought that this was a fun idea is because much of my illustration work consists of maps and I also do a lot of hand drawn text.  I've always been drawn to this orange and turquoise combination and most of my website and materials are done with those colors in mind.
