Wycinanki- Polish birthday card

June 17th marked my grandmother's 98 birthday. She is fiesty, artistic, beautiful, opionated, elegant and able to entertain herself in 5 square feet of space for an entire day by artistically rearranging that which surrounds her. This polish cut paper or wycinanki is for her. I remember making these as a little girl with her, birds and flowers mostly.

Illustration Friday: SUMMER

Illustration Friday topic Summer. So many possibilities for this topic, I might play around with some additional illustrations, but I could not resist a pair of hypnotizing vintage bathing suits. Love stripes and polkadots, and I have a bit of a thing for orange and blue too:)

This is a ink and prisma color drawing with a bit of photoshop manipulation/digital collage.

IF: Contraption

This past weekend I worked with my son rigging our own contraption, a greywater system from our washing machine to plants in our back yard. Although that might have made a wonderful illustration, the snaking pvc pipe, I opted for this still water related contraption of my imagination.

I call it "The flying, paddling, water suckerupper, squirterouter rain maker"
Here it is in two versions original drawing and digital manipulation.
