Illustration Friday: Sweater
When I saw the topic, "sweater", I knew that there would be some wonderful illustrations this week, and I haven't been disappointed. There are some really great pieces, especially from the wonderful creators of children's art. But for me, this was a tough one...I rarely draw people, or clothes-wearing animals, so I had to think about it in my terms, which usually start with botanicals. My saucer magnolia is blooming, and its flowers burst out of furry little sweater-like buds, but after drawing the quince last week, I wanted something different. Yesterday, I was at Safeway and saw the kiwi...all of that colorful goodness wrapped up in little fuzzy brown sweaters.
