The moment I saw the Illustration Friday word "mesmerizing", I thought of two gigantic eyes. . which then led to owls. . which then led to the traditional practice of hypnotizing patients. That's just the way my mind works ;).
I apologize for my long absence from this blog. I came back from Boston/Ireland and then jumped directly into catching up with my picture book illustrations. Thus, this week's IF is a little rough but in return, I give you a sketch I made during my travels:
It's of a traditional thatched roof cottage that was built in the 1800's by a poet in Adare, Ireland. How charming would it be to live there? The trip was fabulous by the way. . great time to catch up with old friends and get inspiration for a new show I want to do with Tea's the Season next year.
For now, I'm just glad to be back into the swing of things and I'm looking forward to spending more time on next week's post!
