Hi! After all the encouragement and great responses I got for my last ATCs, I'd thought I'd give it a second try. Obviously, my style has changed a bit since 2008, but I like to think it did so for the better. These were done with pen, markers and coloured pencils. Again, the scanning messes the colouring and shading a little, I tried to fix it by playing with the contrast but the light colours still get washed out. Oh well, next time.






Let me know what you think!

I love the character in all of these, And the colors are really nice! I like the high contrast look and how the two characters pop out of their frames. Nice illustration style!

Love your style! And, the little surprises make these very unique...my favorite is ice cream girl!

Also, the little girl with the balloon actually look like some of the elderly ladies I see at the beach...so that one is special to me!

Thank you! I like how the ice-cream girl turned out, although she gives out a "barbie" vibe to me - maybe I should name her Barbara Grin I'm curious, what makes you think about the old ladies? Is it the glasses, the hat? Maybe the hearts?

I find that as people age, they tend to return to childhood...old people and children tend to dress in whatever they want, have a playfulness about them, and tend to amuse themselves...it is all of the things ... the balloon, the funny hat, the funky glasses...the floral tent dress...it is more the "feeling" of being carefree and loving life that evokes those images for me...

To return to that time is so freeing... Cheesy
