Illustration Friday - Savour

I think that this one is just perfect for this week's Illustration Friday topic: Savour. I drew this with charcoal and painted it with watercolor and pastel. I also used Photoshop to add the skin tones and the green on her shirt. Enjoy!

Why I Hate Being Sick

I'm not one to complain, but I have been sick for about the last week with some sort of like a cold/flu thing. I know that no one likes to be sick but I ESPECIALLY don't like it. When I realized I was getting sick I started eating a lot of honey and drinking a lot of tea because that is what everyone I talked to told me to do. In two days I ate about a half a bear of honey (the big bear not the little one) and like 16 cups of tea.

The worst part about me being sick is that I have a hard time falling asleep. I can't sleep when I'm uncomfortable, and when I'm sick I am very uncomfortable. NyQuil usually does a pretty good job of knocking me out, however, it tastes so disgusting that I have to give myself a ten minute pep talk just to be able to drink it down. THEN, after working myself up for ten minutes I realize that if I would have taken it ten minutes ago it would be all over. At that point I have to give myself another pep talk telling myself to take it right away so it can be over with. When I finally do take it I have to eat a bunch of crackers to get the disgusting taste out of my mouth. And by then everyone in the house is staring at me because apparently I was giving myself the pep talk out loud and I have cracker crumbs all over my clothes and in my hair. Needless to say, I don't take NyQuil unless I am really desperate. But seriously, if I didn't have anything better to do, I would totally call NyQuil and ask them why their medicine tastes so bad.

The good news is that I'm getting better now. I'm back to painting and drawing again.. I usually don't work when I'm sick because I tend to 'ruin' things when I don't feel good:/
But anyways, I have a ton of new illustrations to share.. just have to get them all scanned in:)

Fall Pics of Junie

I finally got a chance to get out and take some pictures on Saturday. Junie was the only one home so I just took her out by herself... hopefully I'll have a chance to get some of the other kids this week and next.

This is my favorite one. I wish she hadn't been moving her right arm.. but that's Junie I guess:)

Such a happy girl!
