Here are the first 8 characters in a lineup for Animal Alphabets Fairy Tale Edition: A for Alice, B for Big Bad Wolf, C for Cowardly Lion, D for Dwarf Long Nose, E for Elves and Shoemaker, F for Frog Prince, G for Golden Goose, and H for Humpty Dumpty.
Here are the three starter characters from Pokemon: Sun and Moon: Litten, Rowlet and Poppilo. Since they are not evolved, I always imagine them starting off as kids.
This weeks Colour Collective color was Nougat. I based my illustration off of the Limerick by Edward Lear, “There Was an Old Man with a Beard”.
There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, “It is just as I feared!—
Two Owls and a Hen, four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard!”
Here is an illustration I made for my illustration agency, The Bright Group International/ The Bright Group USA. It was for their 4th of July campaign they sent out to all their clients. I was honored to have been one of the few chosen to be featured. Enjoy!
I decided to join in this round of Animal Alphabets, because the theme was Mythical Creatures. I knew it would lend to some interesting designs. So here are the first 9: Alphyn, Basilisk, Centaur, Dragon, Erymanthian Boar, Faun, Griffin, Hippocampus, and Imp.
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.
This weeks Colour Collective was Serenity Blue. I decided to revisit Mole from “Wind in The Willows.” In this illustration I have him painting his study for Spring.
