Been participating with these Draw This in Your Style challenges with one of my favorite illustrators, Rhode Montijo. He’s known for his vintage illustration style and also our shared love of Halloween and the Fall season. Here are a few illustrations I’ve done for this challenge the last several weeks leading to Halloween.
My First “Draw This In Your Style” with Erin Hunting
Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July Weekend!
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!
“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.
“The White Hare and the Crocodiles” For this Weeks Colour Collective Leaf Green
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.
Colour Collective Serenity Blue
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.
