Mona Kilauwea

I've been working on this watercolor in between illustration work.

After posting this, I realized it works very well for this week's Illustration Friday topic, Homage. As you may have noticed, it is a humble homage to another Mona.

My mom gave me these great pads of paper that she got for free from a friend who works at a paper company. They cut up their leftover paper and make it into pads; the quality of the paper is good, quite heavy with just the right tooth for sketching in graphite. Nothing stops me up creatively more than really expensive art materials, so something like this is perfect. If it's free I feel like I don't have to worry about making a "good" drawing; I can just draw!

This particular drawing is a study for a much larger painting I hope to make in the future.

Medio Pollito

These are two illustrations from a project I just finished illustrating a story called Medio Pollito for the Core Knowledge Foundation.
