EGG





This week's word is EGG

Egg
Digital

At first I wasn't exactly sure how I would want to illustrate the word "egg" until I remember that  I had recently sketch a mother and child, in a circular format similar to an egg, so I used it for this challenge.

As I worked on this  illustration, I focused on the idea of Russian nesting dolls,  family within, and renewal.

Eye Glasses


This week's words for Illustration Friday are  EYE GLASSES

I had fun working on this illustration.
I began the drawing on my I Pad on Friday morning during my flight to a family reunion in Texas.
During the remaining of the weekend, I had time to think of how I would want to illustrate the words EYE GLASSES.
 It wasn't until my flight back to California, that I realized that I could just add glasses to the drawing.
To finish the illustration, I focused on colors suggesting "early morning", and indoor lighting.

Yesterday





This week's word is Yesterday



To illustrate the word Yesterday, my thoughts went to old newspaper clippings, or magazine  articles that were once hot off the press, but are now faded,discarded, and forgotten.

I began by sketching the face using the ASKetch app. Next, I colored the sketch using ArtStudio app.  To complete the concept of aged and faded paper I used 2 layers of crumbled paper from the Sketch app as background.
