Illustration Friday: Foggy

Here is my contribution for this Illustration Friday's theme for "foggy."

"The Fog" was an early reader assignment for Hartcourt School Publishers. It gave me the chance to create some historical pieces, and work with a story with lots of atmosphere. The little boy in the story, Tom, becomes afraid while walking in the fog, so his mother retrieves a lamp from their house.

I would love to see how the finished product turned out. Unfortunately with larger publishers, you don't always get free samples.

Looks like a shower!

My college roomie is getting married this fall, and I'm organizing a bridal shower for her. I plan to design and make the invitations. Hopefully the pun is not lost on everyone, but this is what I envisioned for "bridal shower". Isn't the bride-to-be supposed to be "showered" with presents?

I did two rough sketches, and I think I'm going with the top one. I like the mouse holding out her paw like she's checking for rain.

I'll post the final design soon!
