*WARNING* shiny objects can be distracting

This week's illustrations is for the blog that inspired this blog, Illustration Friday! I.F. is a great site where and they post a new topic each week to illustrate and then participants post their images on the site and they pick a winner. Super great way to build the illustrator community.

This week's topic was the word 'shiny' and who doesn't like shiny things? I know I do. I played around with the idea of shiny objects and the saying 'brand new and shiny' but nothing stuck until this little saying came up and I decided it was close enough to shiny to count. 

This gal is letting herself shine from the inside out, see how she's meditating really, really hard on it. Plus she is rocking some super cute curls. I have also been really getting into hand lettering all my latest illustrations and am having fun with it. I think the lettering on this piece integrates nicely with the gal. 

Thanks for stopping by!

So Rob my husband is an avid homebrewer and has been asking me to a homebrew print for him for a while now. So in honor of his big homebrew fest that is coming up this Saturday I finally did one. I am really happy how it turned out and according to Rob, "I totally need to put more dudes in my illustrations" so I did. Dudes and beer go together very well I think. I also included a photo that my muse (Rob) took of his beer he drank to help inspire me.

Put a bird on it

So if you haven't already watched this hilarious clip "Put a Bird on It" from Portlandia, you must watch immediately! Watch here  

So I totally put three birds on it for this week's illustration. I also threw in a three eyed monster, because hey why not.

Tonight is First Fridays in the crossroads too so if you are in the Kansas City area stop on by - I'll be selling my prints and paintings at Archival Designsfrom 6-10 tonight.
