…on whatever little scrap of paper I may come across.
This one was green.
Honestly, I have so many of these sketches all over the place, it’s maddening. My girls are everywhere: at home, on my desk at work, inside the drawers, on the kitchen table, and so on. I should really start to collect them and do something with them. Maybe an illustration collage at some point? That might be a nice project.
Good week so far? :)
The lovely Grace from Liberal Sprinkles wrote a most passionate and enthusiastic blog post about They Draw and Cook. I was very excited when I saw it because I am very passionate about them too. I’ve mentioned them here numerous times and visit their blog at least once a week. They are wonderful!
I was double excited when she contacted me and asked me to be one of the illustrators featured in the article. How cool is that?
Here is the illustration that was featured in the post:
And here is a little bit of what she wrote about it:
” … We all need a little magic in our lives sometimes (all the time would be better but I shouldn’t be greedy) and this artwork makes me feel good in a fairy tale princess sort of way…” – Oh, how sweet is this lady?
Ever since I started publishing my illustrations online, this has been my most featured piece so far on other blogs. I am stunned at the amount of people who have contacted me about this particular drawing. I am incredibly flattered of course, and very glad to find that it is bringing them joy. That’s the whole point of illustration, isn’t it? And the whole point of cupcakes too, I’m sure. :)
Check out the other illustrations (truly amazing stuff) and read the interviews here.
I remember drawing this girl during a particularly uninspiring and pointless business meeting. – How annoying are they? Am I the only one who thinks most meetings are a waste of time? – Anyway, I don’t remember what it was about, but I remember drawing her and deciding to keep her in the end. I guess she reminds me to chill out when work gets too crazy.
Fine point markers on recycled paper.
