Illustration Friday—Shadows

June 9, 2011

Many apologies for my lack of post this past month!

Like father, like son… One day this lil’ cub will follow his father in guarding the stacks. But for the moment, he’ll remain in the “shadows” of great books and king of the beasts simply practicing the pose.

      Thanks, Terry! I’ve been remiss with posting, but as always, thank you for your “atta girl” comments!! I hope all’s well with you guys. I usually don’t reply to comments because I figure no one comes back to see them, but maybe you do get a ping of sorts…

    As always, I’m just floored by the personality you put into your artwork. I have never seen anything like it. You are one of my all-time favorite artists. Thank you so much for sharing–and for inspiring me to seek greater expression in my own artwork.

      Beth, I have tot tell you your comments always make me smile! I hadn’t posted in forever and no kidding, I kept thinking, “I need to get something new up…I know Beth needs a fix!” Thank you for the fire and the most wonderful comments!!

        I feel so honored you would say such a thing–when you are one of the most inspiring artists I’ve come across yet. The look on the little fellow’s face is just priceless. ((hugs)) You are not only talented, but kind and sweet as well. THAT is a winning combo, my dear!

    Can’t beat those expressions! So beautifully drawn, as usual 🙂

    Been a while my friend. You never disappoint. We both must have had lion fever this week. I absolutely adore the expressions on parent and child. Although sometimes I know I look more like the kid as I struggle through my illo dreams. I just love and am always inspired by your work. Talent. Talent. Talent.

    Very cool. I’ve got to say, the angle with which you chose to draw this is FANTASTIC. I love it. It feels so regal. I get stuck drawing things at eye level too often I LOVE that you went a little lower POV on this piece.

    Nice dynamic of father and son.

    How are you?
    I have been stopping by here looking for something new. 🙂 Well done!
    I agree with Rubin. The first thing that struck me was the perspective. Very clever. And I like the take on the statue version of the animal unlike your usual wildlife (which I admire dearly!!)
    It’s fresh and different and adoooorable as all your drawings.
    As Jen said, definitely an incredibly talent to portray such realistic and human expressions!
    Great father’s day gift card! 🙂
