Oh my, so very original! Totally love all your teeny detail work. I love Terry's expression but Winston is the best! Ha, so hilarious. (Also, my dog is named Wilson and people call him Winston all the time). ;)
I agree with Cindy...very original! Great composition of stripes. Winston is the perfect name for a dog--and your Winston looks like Winston Churchill's dog--!
Thanks Cindy D. I just had a premonition that I'll be carrying on in conversation about 'Wilson' Churchill and Great Britain during wartime. Give your boy a pat for me.
Hi Elizabeth, I like how stripes can break up the picture plane into different levels and in this case paths.
This is great! Love the play of colors. My mother has a dog named Winston.
Got here from Illustration Friday; the style on this is very original!
Amazing style and great colours, too. The stripes tell the story.
You have a great style with all the details in it! Your characters are so expressive and funny!
I love this. Great job!
Thanks for your comments Kerry S, Wendy C, deer P, Leen's & Caitlin R. After many years of commercial illustration and children's books it's nice to return here to what I consider my more 'natural' hand and humour with these series of illustrations.
I like the contrast of black detailed characters and simple colored background, it looks really interesting.
Hi Sadhvi, I been liking the process of trying to have the contrasting elements work together. I could spend a lifetime creating and playing with the background texture variations.Speaking of backgrounds, I had a look at your post http://pinkspool.blogspot.com/2011/12/illustration-friday-round.htmlThe 'background' environment of the little sprout forest is fantastic and it gives your potter character with her lovely colours and enormous cool braid a nice whimsical feel. Especially in the first photo.
