When I draw I tend to lean heavily on my addiction to pencil/eraser. However, I've recently read more and more blogs by artists I admire that never use pencil - they just wing it. So I got brave and tried it out myself and Look!! She's cute - go figure!

This week's topic at Illustration Friday is RETRO so I took my gouache and started painting.
Took some motifs from the 50's and twisted them up with my own interpretation. Love yellow ochre as the background - I would totally wear a skirt with this pattern.

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?
I tend to call myself a realist which, truth be told, means I am more than a little bit of a pessimist. I prefer to be prepared for the worst and then be pleasantly surprised if things go well rather than expecting things to go great and then be disappointed.
So my glass of girl would tend to be more on the empty side.
Started with a doodle on an envelope. . .
colored her in. . .
then collaged her into a 1962 "Air Is All Around You" book.
Weird - but it is how I roll.
