Illustration from Three for the RoadPencil, watercolour(There are hidden animals in the picture, can’t remember how many- that’s right, twelve. The frog in the corner is saying it.)Journey of three friends around Australia.
story, kangaroo, emu, illos
Really sweet, gorgeous work.
Thank-you. It was a fun to do. At the end of the story the Emu is running a Hot Air Balloon Rides company called ‘Emus Fly Free’ where any Emu who rocks up can get a free balloon trip. The Kangaroo is a travelling singer-songwriter and the Echidna is a private detective.
Whimsical art at its best!
I was going to mention that I sensed a little bit of Shepard’s influence here … and I now see from your profile that you admire his work too. I recently bought a hard-backed edition of the Winnie the Pooh stories, illustrated by Shepard.
Genius illustrations in his (the only real) Winnie the Pooh. He makes the whole page open into air of 100 acre woods with the open edges of the drawings. What I tried above here is so clunky in comparison…sigh. But thanks for your comment, I go and look at your RB folio every now and then, admire the detail and love of your subjects the pieces show.
Outstanding Art work.
Beautiful work Jen. I really love it.
There is a joyful sense of airy light in your work.
Thanks Mark, you know I feel that light when I do it….not always, but when it is humming along. Can I please have your garden and cat? Just thought I’d ask Oh and your photographic skill would be good too!
Your welcome to visit! Or add to it! Many have… I am sure you can take a photo, but do you have the opportunity to have a garden?
I am at the pegging out and rebuilding of an old garden, lots of digging, weeding, moving plants etc…(whereas if you gave me your glorious one…I’d be done by now and just be able to sit with the cat :) Plus I’d be surrounded by those rock sculptures!
