Illustration Friday: Baby

I did a couple of these just for fun- or maybe I was bored. The first one has, of course, a chicken theme.

Hmmm… what is it with me and chickens?  Am I paying for that one time as a child when we herded them up to the top of the barn to see if chickens could really fly?

The next one I decided to draw through the eyes of a child with a naive, stylized “feel:”:

My inspiration was a cat I had growing up, when she had her babies and would carry them all over the house. Ahhhhh… childhood memories.

Illustration Friday: Worry

And a close up of the worms:

I don’t think I would trust that top worm… LOL! Btw, I am drawing to the word, “worry,” this week.

This simple cartoon is actually a metaphor for many topics, I decided as I illustrated it. I’ll let you guess which ones.

Enjoy your weekend! Regards, Carla

Illustation Friday: Leap

Happy Leap Day, Everyone!! Here is my IF for the week:


Inspiration was the word association of Leap:frog. I’ve always been intrigued by how fast they grab their food using their tongues, hence the illo above. I would love to ask other IF participants who work digitally… what programs do you use and how do you approach adding color?

For new visitors, here are a few other Illustration Friday challenges I have done:

IF: “Hats”

IF: “Scale” 

IF: “Excess” 

IF: “Zoo”

IF: “Choose” 

Thanks! Regards, Carla
