So I finally got around to adding color to my illustration titled Carie's Stories! The illustration depicts my sister, Carie surrounded by imagery of her favorite stories. From left to right...Ramona Flowers (Scott Pilgrim), Howl's Moving Castle, Airship (Castle In the Sky), The Shire (The Hobbit), Hogwarts(Harry Potter), Nobody Owens (The Graveyard Book), Dany's Dragon Eggs (Game of Thrones), Yuki & Kyo (Fruits Basket), Kazul (Dealing with Dragons). Everything is surrounded by the Two Trees of Valinor (The Silmarillion).

Hi Everyone! Here is a new whimsical illustration I finished last night. I've done a few Hot Air Balloon drawings before and always loved the theme. I experimented with Ink, watercolor and prismacolor. I also got the chance to try out my new Epson scanner...which I love!
I also wanted to thank everyone who has followed my blog so far! I reached over 100 followers since starting this blog this past summer! Thanks so much!
I wanted to experiment with combining collage and portrait. I used conte, ink, and marbled paper. I was very pleased with how it came out and plan to do a entire series like this.
