Noble Illustrations Process and Musings

Days Seventeen and Eighteen of PiBoIdMo and SkAdaMo


Someone I met last May wanted to play some more. I’m not sure exactly who she is, but I get the feeling she is from Belize. We’ll have to talk more, but I’ve grown fond of her and want to know all about her.

This is how she popped out back in the Spring, which is my default 80s style of illustration.


Over the last two days I have doodled various characters and played around more with her.






Again, I had nothing in mind while I was playing, so there isn’t much consistency of style or character. But I was starting to get a feel for who she is. Hopefully she will keep giving me hints! The one I did this morning was a style connection with the chickens I had done last week, using the white dots and pastel pencil smudges again. I don’t know what she is mixing up, but I bet it has eggs in it!

    Really like this path your’re on. But then, I like everything you do!

      Thanks, Linda! It’s starting to settle in, although today I had worked for an hour or so before I realized I had inked the outlines again. Hard to break decades old habits!
