Illustration Friday - "Sour"



Here's a little drawing I did for Illustration Friday - my first go at submitting something, although I always look at it! As the theme was "Sour", I drew the Old Woman Who Lived In a Vinegar Bottle. I like this story - I can identify with the miserable old moo, as I always tend to look forward to moving to my next place! I've done some work on this story before, when I exhibited with the Inky Crows group at Thebes Gallery in Lewes last year -our theme was English Folktales. I made a doll of the character - here's a rather bad pic.




She has decided to stay put and improve her current vinegar bottle, what with the credit crunch, and now she resides in my dining room and keeps me company while I work.

I might start a new series of pics here next week, so watch this space. (Well not this one, but, you know, future ones!)

Have a great rest of week everyone. And Happy Birthday to my dad!

You've got some skills. I'm sick of seeing talented people struggle. This world doesn't often seem to appreciate what it takes to make stuff. I too struggle, and have complicated thoughts in those regards. Any insights you could share along those lines would be cool.

Kenn - don't get me started! I seem to struggle for time, space and money. In fact a few months back I was on the point of giving up...but as you probably know creative urges are impossible to ignore! It's always been my dream to support myself and my family with my arty antics alone. I've joined an exhibiting group and am trying to build up a portfolio to either show agents/publishers, or to get into uni and further my studies. Also I have learned not to really talk about my work to people who don't support me - it's too disheartening! Thanks for visiting and good luck!

Thanks everyone for all your kind and encouraging comments from all over the world...it's so exciting! xx
