Illustration Friday, Theme: Travel

I love to travel. I've been fortunate enough to see Europe several times, and even Africa, but some of my best travels have been in books. The airfare is better of course.
So, yesterday was a lazy day at Moonshine Lodge. Ironically enough, what did I end up doing? Drawing - with a pencil no less. I can't tell you how many times I tried to hit "edit-undo." I created this little girl, and a drawing I sent off to SCBWI. Seems they're low on b/w illustrations for the Bulletin. Hm.

Lovely pic. I know what you mean about the command-z when drawing the "old-fashioned" way!

Nice illustration. As an avid book reader I feel a big Doh! coming on as I didn't even think of that slant on travel, nice take on the subject!

What a sweet face! I love the simplicity of your illo.
Speaking of SCBWI, I'm working right now on an illo to submit for their "April Showers" contest. I never thought about submitting to the Bulletin! I think I'll mosey on over and look at their requirements. :)

It's great to be immersed in a book so much that you feel you are there. This illo captures that beautifully. Great job. You are so talented.

This is so beautiful. Without a background, I'm drawn into the illustration even more... noticing all the little details. Excellent work.

Very Sweet. It's perfect that it depicts two types of travel, physically traveling and what it feel like to travel through books. (I often have ctrl z syndrome as well)

Hee! I do the same thing concering the "undos". You know you're working on the computer too much when that happens.

Your illustration looks great, and I love the fact that he's out traveling and traveling in his book at the same time.
