IF swamp

Some critters having a chat down at the swamp. And it wouldn't be a swamp without mosquitoes - upper left. This is from a book I illustrated years ago called 'Counting On Friends' self-published by the author Diane Belinfanti. This was pre-digital, done in oils on illustration board. Nowadays I use oils in Corel Painter. The frog character is a favourite of mine that I use for my logo and banner.

IF Shades - black and white illustration

This is as close as I could get to this weeks topic 'shades'. This is more shading than shades. A pencil illustration I did for a cookbook called 'Canadian Recipes of the Great White North' by Chef Bari Demers. I did this many years ago but I still like it because I made this cabin up, and it's my dream cabin; where it's always warm and there are no mosquitoes or blackflies. Done in pencil.

IF - Yield picture book illustration

This is an illustration from 'Baby Bear Discovers Ramadan' written by Efdal Elferri.
This was drawn in pencil, scanned then painted in Corel painter.
I'm finally getting back to posting on IF after a long time away. I meant to post last week when the word was Intention, because I intend to get back to posting; so my intention was to post last week but I never got around to it.
