For the color challenge this week (Serenity Blue) I used this sketch which I did as a tribute to those in our community who were effected by the flooding a week ago. Many people had their homes destroyed and are still displaced. Our neighborhood was fine but as little as ten minutes away others were forced to leave their homes and belongings to the water with hardly any notice. It had never happened here that mere rainstorms flooded people out of their homes... once in the 80's there was a levy breach at the river and many homes were flooded but the areas effected then were different. This came completely out of the blue. Often here in North Louisiana we are the safe haven for those who evacuate north during hurricanes out of the gulf, but this time it was our people who needed help. One sweet part of the whole experience has been the way the community has come forward and supported those in trouble. It has really been inspirational and beautiful. Only good stories and heartwarming kindness have been the order of the day.
Meanwhile, I also participated in the SVS Third Thursday contest for March. The prompt was "Haven brought it to Show and Tell even though she didn't have permission"-
This month's was a spot illustration. I prefer those, although everyone seemed to have a different definition of what a spot really entails.
I enjoyed the chance to incorporate the robot owl I sketched a while back.
Thanks for reading
Thanks for stopping by. I'm a published illustrator working on getting better every day. My goal for my work is for it to be charming, bright and endearing. I share my ongoing work progress online because I welcome all the encouragement and feedback I can get as I try to improve my skills. I currently have a children's book project that I am nearing the end of.
