Illustration Friday "Rambunctious"

Since "rambunctious" usually refers to kids, I thought it would be a good idea to turn the tables. This also reminded me of a childhood experience: One time my parents had some of their friends over and they put my brother and me to bed. After several rounds of drinks, one of their guests started telling dirty jokes. My brother I and cracked open the door and listened. Later, my mom caught me telling embellished versions of the dirty jokes!

"Maybe if he pretended to be asleep, then Finkley would just go away ..."

I wanted to do another monster illustration this week. This is a little different technique than usual: mostly gouache over an ink drawing on Strathmore illustration board.

Illustration Friday "Late"

I did this watercolor for Illustration Friday's topic "Late." I was thinking about two things: the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland and working late into the night on deadline (and I worked late on Friday night to finish it).
