"Waiting For Red"
August 2009
rollerball pen, copic sketch markers, sakura micron pigmas, & opaque white ink for highlights in a moleskine journal.

ever wondered what happened after grandma was eaten, but before little red riding hood arrived?
the wolf gets in character, of course!

i think mister b. b. wolf needs to work on his knitting.
the pattern is for a 2 legged long-john and he has 3 so far, but since he's using double-point needles and i haven't gotten the hang of them yet, i'll cut him some slack.

i loved playing with the patterns on his quilt.

and yes, the rollers that i put on miss ladybug are back. they were just too much fun and i didn't want a floppy, chef hat sort of thing that most illustrations put granny in.

created in adobe illustrator

i love vector art. it's fun to play around and see what i get.
i need to learn to use the gradient mesh.

the gold pearl kinda reminds me of the princess' golden ball in the "frog prince" fairy tale.

i had a wonderful trip to san antonio with girlwithoutfear this past weekend.
we were there to visit divalea & her awesome daughter! let me show you how talented this kid is-she made a plushie of eva 01 from evangelion, by hand and created her own pattern. go check out her dA account and see her stuff. i couldn't do this stuff at 16,  let alone right now! plus, she draws so well. i look forward to what this girl will do.

lea let me use her computer to create this.
i had such a fun time! i hope alice and i can see you & sum again soon!

oh, btw, have you seen girlwithoutfear's new blog? you really should! go, alice, go!!

"ladybug ladybug"
finished 7-18-09
copics, micron pigmas, pitt-castel brush pen, opaque white ink in a moleskine journal

the little rhyme was in my head a few weeks back.
changed the ending though. i have a friend who was burned as a teenager and another who lost a home in a fire. the implication of endangering little insect children, therefore, was not something i could bear...even if they were imaginary insect children.
i wanted to make this cartoony as possible.

so, little miss ladybug is on her way home from the local bug laundromat, taking her faithful pet mosquito for a walk, when she sees the smoke.
