When I sat down to complete this illustration, I had no idea what I was going to do. I threw on my music, and started doodling. I was thinking, water and waves - which quickly transformed into the birds feathers. One thing led to another, and I am left with a bird to represent dip. Although, now that I look at it, the branch the bird is perched on (in the sketch) is "dipping" down.

When creating an illustration this week, I was craving simplicity. I limited my colours, and simplified the lines. The hand is reaching into the water, with hopes of rescuing someone (not pictured).
After posting my original illustration, it was recommended that I experiment with the presence of someone or something that the hand can rescue. I added some hair and bubbles, and now there is a damsel in distress. She'll be alright.

This is an illustration for a postcard, which (if chosen) will be distributed to supporters of Tom Wolfe's Ride for Cancer. When creating this illustration, I kept in mind the wholesome nature of the event. Executed in Coloured Pencil, Ink, and Cardboard.

Tuesday is the day I sit down, relax, and create my Illustration Friday work. Luckily enough, I didn't have my art kit, and resorted to a pen and some pencil crayons I had in my room. I knew from the beginning I wanted to portray "expired" as a dirty mouth. Keeping with my routine, I once again tried a new style. I drew a mouth, and roughly coloured it in with some wannabe stippling. This mouth has definitely expired!
