Illustration Friday: Poise

When I think of the word "poise", I think of "elegant balance." My wedding doves are the best example I have of this concept, on many levels.

I created my wedding doves almost six years ago to design a more personalized wedding invitation. On many levels, "poise" is more than just a suspended position. In marriage, everything is a act of balance and teamwork, and on some days it is elegant -- on other days, not so much!

The doves were framed and signed by our guests at the wedding reception. It now hangs in our hallway.

Lots going on here! This is a page from a kindergarten activity book that unfortunately got shelved.

St. Patrick's Day is coming!

The Hat Kid series continues with this little guy. There is so much green! I'm hoping to break up the humongous shape of the hat with a subtle clover pattern. I also thought it would be funny to show the little bird with the elusive piece of gold in its beak.

I will get this done by St. Patrick's Day!
