Together

"Together" is the theme for this week at  www.illustrationfriday.com.  You can see this piece and other artists' interpretations of this theme on their website.

I'm still working on these little characters.  Reworked one of the scenes by tightening the composition and making the characters a little more cartoon-like and quirky.
 
This is a sketch for another piece I want to do.  I played around with the birds-eye view which I think helps tell the story better.

Hidden

This week's theme on www.illustrationfriday.com is "hidden."  I'm still playing around with these little characters for a children's story I've written.  This time I worked in colored pencil and I think I like the direction it's going much better.  Next, I'll add  the girl's bedroom in the background.  And it needs a cat -- a very nervous cat behind the girl.
