Illustration Friday: Subtract

Illustration Friday: Subtract, originally uploaded by Kinnon.

This Friday's theme was Subtract - so I subtracted the outlines of fish from a piece of blue japanese paper and the fishing idea was born.  If I were to do this again, I would find a way to make the fish look more "cut out" - my scanner has flattened the paper so I find it's hard to tell.

The text in the New Yorker article has nothing to do with humpback whales, but this drawing made me fall in love with pencil all over again.

Illustration Friday: Legendary

Illustration Friday is an email group to which I belong that sends out themes on Friday of every week and everyone is invited to submit an illustration based on that theme or topic. I've been getting the emails for a few months now, but only today did I do anything about it. Here's my submission for the theme "legendary." I went with the legend of King Arthur...through the eyes of a 10 year old boy. It was done in pencil.
