So … this post is about my illustrations for Illustration Friday. Instead of writing a post per week about them, I will simply update this post. So I hope I will have lots of images to share with you during this year.
I really enjoy working with shadows for my Illustration Friday. I got some ideas from a Shadow theatre book I got from the library. I guess I’ll stick to the retro / victorian style because it is lots of fun, but actually it can be challenging some times, once you never know what next week has in store for you.
The other thing about the illustrations is that most of the time I have a quote in mind when I work on them. Though I don’t put it on the drawing (I wanna keep it as clean as possible), I thought it would be a good idea to write the quotes down here. If any of the drawings bring you another quote in mind, I would love to hear it.
I hope you like them and feel free to write comments.
