IF - Repair

This week's topic at Illustration Friday is "repair". I thought of all those character shaped holes in Tex Avery Cartoons. Someone had to fix them. I'm experimenting with my new fluid acrylic paints. I was trying to use them with a watercolor technique. They don't quite work that way. They are good for building up glazes, but they're hard to fix if you mess up.

IF - Late

This weeks Illustration Friday's topic is "Late". I went back to inking with a brush for this one. The gray is ink wash rather than watercolor. It has a smoother look (except where I drybrushed) but is very unforgiving.

Lab Partner

Here's a piece I did for the latest SCBWI contest. The challenge was to illustrate the following. "When your book's main character gets to the first day of Biology something worse than mold in a petri dish is waiting". You can see the winners here.
