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 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!”
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 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.
This weeks Colour Collective color was Pale Geranium Lake Red. So I decided to use an old character design of Little Red Riding Hood from a past “Shape of the Week”. Here shes being stopped by the Wolf while on her journey to her Grandmother’s house.
This weeks Colour Collective color was dandelion yellow. I decided to go back to the OZ theme, so I had to use it for the yellow brick road. Who knows if future colors will bring me back to exploring Dorothy and Toto in OZ.
