Illustration Friday: holiday

Well, holidays are always holidays - no matter what part of the Universe you come from. It's an opportunity to do things you don't usually do. Like lay on a couch with a nice cup of tea and favorite book or something.



Have a a great holiday season everyone and a great year in 2006! Thanks for visiting!

P.P.S. No references to any religion on my part as I celebrate everything this time of the year :) This was just the most suitable paper for the moment.

Illustration Friday: Blue


Well, when you are blue - what can be better than a friendly light waiting for you and ability to give a gift? a dozen other things perhaps - but these might work too :)
This is another card from the series I created for this Holiday Season.

Illustration Friday: Free


This watercolor was created a little while ago - I tried to create something completely new - but somehow out of all attempts to do an illustration this week this one had the most "free" feeling.

Illustration Friday: Night + Fixed Link


I tried to use many different blacks to show you the colors of night but I am afraid my scanner picked up only a few of them - in any case - it was a fun experiment with showing black on black on black :) Too bad little rabbit in the bottom left corner is almost lost :( Click on the image to see a larger version.

Oh - and thanks to a friend of mine - I found out that a link to my web-site (on the right) was broken - but now is fixed - please visit :)

Illustration Friday: Float


This is not a new work - it's just a work that I did earlier this year and it came up to my mind as soon as I saw this week's topic. I tried to do something new but it all seems to be less interesting to share.
I enjoy "working with elephants: - here is a link to continuation of this floating-sleeping one :)

"Empty" for Illustration Friday


Sunday evening. Since Friday I did a lot of versions and realized that no matter how many ways to convey the "emptyness" I found - none of them really spoke what I wanted. And at the end this little drawing did it... this is a sketch about people leaving us.
