Survival

The theme for this week on www.illustrationfriday.com is SURIVAL.  I don't think there's much chance for survival for this dragonfly.  This was created with paints, inks, and collage papers.

Search

This weeks topic for www.illustrationfriday.com
is Search.  This illustration was created with newspaper and magazine clippings, tissue paper, a metal washer, foil, some grid sticky tape I found in the garage (what that is for, I have no idea!), paint, ink, and charcoal.  This guy is searching for trash, much like I had to do for this illustration.  You can find more of my trashy illustrations at http://cherylpilgrim.com/illustrations

Sketches

After Giuseppe Castellano's tweet about posting sketches on your website, I updated mine today.

These are sketches of fellow artists and local people who model for us at our Woodlands Art League life-drawing groups.

Sneeze

This is my entry for the SCBWI Tomie DePaola illustration contest. I used notebook paper, a coffee stirrer stick, fabric, and scraps of watercolor paper for this illustration of the poem "Sneeze." Just goes to show you don't need fancy, expensive materials to make art.

Underwater

The theme is "underwater" at illustration.com.
I used inks, paints and tissue paper in this sea turtle painting.   Rubbing alcohol was dropped in areas of wet paint to create the background effects. 
The texture on the sea turtle was created with bubble wrap that was painted and printed on the tissue paper.
