Smitten Part 2 and Black & Orange

This is my entry for the Black & Orange contest, and also the final version of the Illustration Friday topic "Smitten" from a few weeks ago. I changed it a little bit from the original sketch. Spider love for Halloween!

Illustration Friday: Smitten

Just sneaking in an illustration this week. I knew I wouldn't have time to finish the painting, so I'm posting the sketch. This will be completed for another project, and I will post it again when it is finished. Until then ... the spiders were smitten with each other!

Art Geek - Illust Friday: Safe

The puppy was not safe from the Art Geek's paint drips. Yes, I know this one's stretching the topic a bit ... but I had this image in my head and wanted it to fit somehow! It started when my friend called me an art geek last week. He meant this as a compliment. We were discussing the difference between nerds and geeks and he thought geeks were cooler and had more going on. Then he said I was kind of an art geek. The words stuck in my head and I wondered what does an art geek look like? Well, she looks kind of like this, which looks kind of like me ... except I don't own a beret, or a puppy.

Illustration Friday: Match

For this week's topic, I did more of a sketch than a full illustration. This is what I imagine the life of a match might be ...

Illustration Friday: Clean

Here is an illustration done late last year that fits this week's topic. Later this week (8/4/06) I will be in LA for the SCBWI summer conference. Maybe some of you out there will also be attending? If so drop by and say hi during the portfolio exhibit! -- Megumi (Goomie)

Illustration Friday: Sticky

It's been a few weeks since my last entry. I tried using a more subtle palette this time, and painted on canvas instead of the usual watercolor paper. Sticky pancake syrup ... yummy!
