Illustration Friday - Obsessed

Hi everyone, it's time for Illustration Friday again! The word of the week is OBSESSED!!! Can you tell what this little girl is obsessed with??
And here's some details:



Anyway, I hope you like it. I've been using Illustration Friday to build a portfolio of children's book illustration portfolio pieces. It is very slow going but I think I finally have enough pieces to send publishers promotional material. Now all I have to do is think up some sort of promotional material that they wont just toss in the trash. (Traditionally, illustrators send post cards) ANY-HOO, I hope you like my painting. (I'm talking about you, you unicorn-obsessed little red head girl. You know who you are.)

THANK YOU FOR VISITING MY BLOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
tiff :D

Terrific control over the medium once again!
I agree how finding an innovative way to present your work will make you stand out - fingers crossed! But I'm sure many publishers would snap you up however your work was presented :)

If or when you decide to sell these little unicorn critters, place an order for me--for about fifty! I love this picture! One of my favorite IF contributions so far!

Hi,Tiffanny,
Very pretty work! Girlish and cute. Oh,yeah, our illo lecturer taught us "send postcards" to editors. It sounds universal?!
Cheers,Sadami

Excellent composition and color on this one! Nice subject choice, too. I've heard you can't go wrong with unicorns (for some reason).
But now I'm pissed that you got your entry done before me. ha ha

L Rossi - oh you're so nice! Children's Book Illustration is crazy competitive though! We shall see!!

Sl Vatale - aww thanks :D I'm glad you found them cute!

Nirzara, Zepol, k.h., Maurico, and whoever commented on this being cute - thanks!!! :D I drew the unicorns in several stages. I looked at the drawing at each stage and asked myself... can this be any cuter? Anyway, I think I took the cute as far as I could. Further cuteing is beyond my artistic abilities.

Sadami - I guess it is universal!! But I hear that publishers get so many they toss a lot away :( I need a gimmick to keep them from tossing mine!!

Ted, my most loyalest blog follower, the fact that you're "watching" makes me try to do my best all the time :) Thanks for nudging me to do this week's Illustration Friday. I was feeling too lazy to do it until I got your e-mail. I'm glad you liked the color and composition!!! :D

Olá moça!
Achou que eu tinha me esquecido do seu blog? Que nada! É que, as vezes, dou uma olhadinha nele e não posto comentários. Mas estou sempre visitando. HE!HE!HE!

Hello lady!
She thought I forgot your blog? Nothing! Because, sometimes, give it a look and do not post comments. But I'm always visiting. HE! HE! HE!

Espero uma visita sua no meu blog (nem que seja uma única vez) que já fico satisfeito. HE!HE!HE!

I hope your visit in my blog (even if only once) I'm already satisfied. HE! HE! HE!

Espero que não entenda como se fosse uma troca de visita de blog. Porque, de qualquer forma, continuarei a visitar o seu. Os seus trabalhos são muito lindos, e merecem serem vistos admirados.

I hope you do not understand as if it were an exchange visit blog. Because, however, continue to visit her. His works are very beautiful, and deserve to be seen admired.

Espero que o Google tenha feito a tradução correta (apesar de sabermos que nunca é 100%).

I hope that Google has made the correct translation (although we know that it is never 100%).

Wow I love the drawing. It's very sweet and adorable.

Sami said...

Lovely lovely works. I have this fascination for watercolors, but I have always struggled in my attempts. Totally stunned by your control over it.

Lovely designs too. They look absolutely delicious! Yum yum!!!

Keep making us smile :)
