Illustration Friday "Cracked"

As you may have noticed over the past few weeks, Illustration Friday has served as a stage for my Comfy Cat & Cozy Dog characters. I am still developing this duo in doodles based on my actual pets. The characters continue to grow, evolve, and find themselves with each day that I draw them (as do I.) I believe consistency in their look and style will naturally emerge with time.

This week's IF word, "CRACKED" evoked a sad memory which inspired this illustration. A few months ago, I came home to find the shattered pieces of my first & most treasured ceramic creation irreparably strewn across my tile floor. It's still painful to think of, but I know that hurting me is last thing that my sweet little kitty-boy would ever want to do. I also know that Cozy was just glad that SHE wasn't the one responsible!

Sarahbee

I am not usually that comfortable sharing rough sketches of early concepts but here's a little idea that visited my mind today. Her name is Sarahbee. She's my smart & sassy fairy guide & she's a funny little sprite.

Illustration Friday- "Hierarchy"


The Hierarchy of my Kingdom: Although Queen Kosey yearns for power, it is the humble King Scratchy who rules the land. I am merely a servant to them both.
