My Colour Collective Illustration for Opal Grey. I literally woke up at 3 am this morning with this dream so I quickly sketched out a rough drawing of it and later today I colored it in. I had dreamed that I had a collection of cloud pets that I kept in jars. To feed them I gave them stars. It was so vivid that it woke me up. Yes, I might be a bit crazy, but as long as their dreams like this, then I’m fine with that lol

This weeks Colour Collective was Plaster Pink. Another strange dream I had was one about flamingo/vulture hybrid that attacks as a flock and when they run they create a cloud the makes them look like they’re one single creature. So this illustration was based off these strange and funny looking creatures. lol

“This Ghost Belonged to Me” Colour Collective: Pearl

This weeks illustration was based off Richard Peck’s book “This Ghost Belonged to Me”.  It was also made into a movie by Disney in the 70’s called, “Child of Glass”.  In this story moment, the boy named Alexander is talking to the Creole ghost girl Inez.  She’s telling him that he must solve the riddle about the Child of Glass before Halloween.  If he doesn’t she’ll be cursed to haunt him for the rest of his life.

Colour Collective Mars Violet

This weeks Colour Collective color was Mars Violet so it reminded me of the color of mud.  Then I remembered a lesser known fairy tale called “The Pig Brother”.  Story goes since the little boy kept his room dirty, the fairy told him to go find his brother, while she fixed his room. He talks to a squirrel, a wren, and a cat asking if they were his brothers. They deny they are his brothers because they are clean. Along comes a pig, which the boy tries to avoid asking the question to, and the pig tells him that they are brothers. The fairy shows up and asks if the little boy would like to live like his brother the pig. The little boy says no, so he makes a deal with the fairy to keep his room clean and he wont live with his brother the pig.
