Illustration Friday: Snail

I made this with acrylic paint accented with colored pencil. It scanned much better than my mostly colored pencil drawings, though it's still not quite what I would like to see. It was also much (crazy much) quicker to make, which was a great relief. I feel that my desire to illustrate an entire story has just become achievable. If I weren't so sleepy right now I would be giddy about that.

  1. So so clever, beautifully drawn. Love her wings. Love the ferns. Love every single detail and the whole picture. The water draining from the hose is so well done. Lisa - YOU are an ARTIST who is a lot of other things but the essential YOU is an artist of the highest quality.

  2. Thank you Aunt Deanna. I'm glad you like it so much. I'll be making more of these busy little ladies--I have a series of ideas for them that would be so fun to assemble into a little book.
