I.F. | Messenger

"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.'" Luke 2:8-14, King James Version

I.F. | Mesmerizing

Just a couple of sketches of things that made me think of this week's Illustration Friday theme "mesmerizing."

1) Watching the local news, I noticed one of the news ladies was wearing shiny, hypnotizing earrings.

2) This represents several bits from the ponponpon video. I like how her bloomers have Takashi Murakami eyes.

One day I might add color to this one.

Frappuccino contest

Here's my entry on deviantart.com for a little contest. Click to see the full image.

edit: Adding the full image here. They provided a template with the shape and logo, and the contest was to fill the cup with things that make us happy. Didn't win anything, but it was a great challenge. I learned some things about Illustrator, too!

I really wish I had had time to draw a chicken this week, but, alas, I must settle posting this little drawing from my archives.

He can also be seen in this blurry picture, shortly after he was born.
