Illustration Friday Topic for 6/25/10~Paisley

I've recently discovered the website Illustration Friday and their weekly challenges that they post to artists. This week's topic is Paisley, and I felt that a paisley design would work great on a bird. I hope you enjoy!

My Contribution to the Ripple Blog

My sketchcard contribution to the Ripple Blog to help animal victims in the Gulf Oil Spill. It is something I did quickly; just a drawing of a hermit crab hiding in her shell and sitting in an oily puddle. Pen & Ink (Sharpies and Indian Ink to be exact) over graphite.
The size of the card is 2.5" x 3.5".

My work at RoCo...

I have been participating in a show for the past couple summers at the Rochester Contemporary Art Center. I first went in 2008 just to view the art and then in 2009 I decided to submit work (my Society Finch piece). For 2010 I decided to do something a bit different...with a style I am playing with and really enjoying.
The first piece I created is of a Koi Fish:

and the second one I created is of a Peacock:

Apparently they have sold, which I am happy to hear, and the money (each piece is sold at $20) goes to support the gallery.
It is interesting to hear which one people like more!
Please visit to see more work from the show!
