Wind for Illustration Friday

"Alright, who did it this time?!"

You could say we were a rather windy family.
Pencil, ink and markers.

Lotus Face Glow, more sunflower art

This is a photoshopped digital image of the seedface of a sunflower. The patterns I saw there reminded me of a lotus, a Buddhist symbol for peace, harmony, beauty. Posted by Picasa

Sunflower art

I finally got round to picking the seeds out of my giant sunflowers this week, and had some fun in the process. Posted by Picasa

Ghost for Illustration Friday

"Keeper of Souls..."
She walked with the ghosts of a thousand crows...

This was the idea that instantly popped into my head as soon as I saw the word "ghost". Not sure why exactly. I know that crows can have negative connotations for a lot of people, but I actually like them.

I'm not sure which version I prefer, the pen & ink or the colour.
What do you think?

Thank you everyone for your generous comments. I think that for this topic, I preferred the pen and ink too which is probably why I posted so many versions of it here. However, I do like the grey and red contrasts of the colour version, but not so much for this topic.

my quiet companion

When it's just him and me at home, Caesar often follows me from room to room. I often look up or turn round from what I'm doing and find him quietly breathing beside me.
