My younger brother and I played "School" when we were little. I used to teach him things on a little chalkboard in our rooms. This girl is teaching rhymes to her little brother, to go with the IllustrationFriday theme "Poem." (finished now, from july26 post)
A few crafty critters of QuietThorne Forest were off to enjoy the new serenity back home. Their plan to convince that bothersome woodpecker the moon is made of wood had actually worked!

[update: finished piece here] My younger brother and I played "School" when we were little. I used to teach him things on a little chalkboard in our rooms. This girl is teaching rhymes to her little brother, to go with the IF theme "Poem." At first, the topic was uninspiring to me in the way of making a children's market illustration, until I realized I could make an illustration of kids learning rhyming. This week I could only finish the pencil drawing and I added this limited color very quickly in PhotoShop. Quick coloring can loosen your style up a little bit now and then anyway.
For my last IF "Geeky" illustration, (view here), my husband and best critic said, "the horse looks like a My Little Pony." :) So while the horse already bothered me and I loved the style of the zebras, I redrew the horse and here it is!I liked that one zebra on the right so much that I'll be making a T-shirt of him (below).
IF topic was like, "what animal do I feel like drawing, then just add glasses." Anyway I went further with an actual concept to the glasses theme:
Everyone has the geeky glasses, + Someone without the geeky glasses = coolness is relative. :)
