Illustration Friday: Welcome

I thought I would welcome autumn with a new fall-themed blog header. I've been meaning to update it all year! The new autumn breezes are making me want to start all sorts of new projects. A new season brings all kinds of possibilities, and fall especially, maybe because we're so trained for this being the time of year when school starts, always feels like a time to leave the frivolous summer behind, and get serious again. This feels like a more apropos time than New Year's to set down some goals. Of course, my head is spinning with a bit too much of what I want to do, and the chilly, darker nights are making me a bit more sleepy, so I'm not doing so hot on my To Do list yet. The trick I found to completing this tonight was to get straight to it after getting home from work, and skipping dinner. But, hungry now, so time to get something to eat, and make blueberry muffins for tomorrow's office potluck.

Illustration Friday: Magnify

I've been working on a project for a client, and one of the images just happens to fit this week's 'Magnify' theme, so I thought I'd post this work in progress. There will probably be some shading and subtle texture added, and I'm still tweaking the colors. I wanted to be farther along on this earlier in the week, but I've been feeling a bit under the weather.
