Rackham Tree Tribute

How do? Me again!

Notice: No Squirrells were harmed or put in any kind of emotionally traumatic situations in the making of this picture. 

I am aware this makes me cruel to create a piece that will leave this little fluffy person in fear forever, but I assure you, one day I will do a picture of him looking chipper and chomping down his nut, which he wondered, a little too far for comfort, into the woods to collect.

Many things were wanted to be achieved from this piece. To demonstrate forground, midground and background for the illustration class and also to show them the wonderfulness (yes, that is a word) of finding faces in trees. God bless Arthur Rackham...the man!

Be well, be happy and try to sniff bees, they smell fuzzy, warm and sweet!

Hello hello!

I am back on the blogging. As Luke put's it, my binge blogging. 
This here be the piece I have put together for 'suspend' illustration friday.
I combined it with the piece I promised my 'illustration techniques' class I would do, circus themed and going easy on the background. You can't really see in the scan, but the wee chappy is bedecked in spangletastic glitter on his hat and coat trim. Snazzy-Monkey-Ring-Leader goodness!

Hope you like...

Wishing all well in this crazy time of mad weather.
