Illustration Friday - Hide

Parties are suppose to be fun and happy. But sometimes they are just too loud, too crowded and too everything and you just want to find a quiet place to hide.

I know you're a newspaper-featured professional and all, but this is still fantastic. I love the expression and pose of the little girl, and I'm enchanted by the backwards lettering on the tablecloth, too. Brilliant.

nice pic but really great job with the angles of the feet...sometimes that can be a super tricky draw...

I love your illustration. You've taken an interesting approach and little girl's feelings are so clear.

Hi Jennifer,

I jsut found your website the other day and wanted to let you know how inspriring your work is.

I work in the creative field too and have always wanted to explore the art of illustration too. I really like your technique.

Would you be willing to share some tips? i.e. which brushes you use, how you do your shading.

I was playing around yesterday and got some nice results but who love to hear your process.

This is perfect-- surprise parties in particular can be hard on kids, even though they may love the idea! Good choice!

Aww, great expression and pose. Poor little thing, maybe she can be tempted to come out with some cake :)

glimbit said...

Oh cool! There's a neat "ah ha" moment when you realize where she is. I'm with her, I always dreaded b-day parties.

Nice work!
