IF: Burning, among Other Things

November 18, 2010

 Illustration Friday . . .

This is my Illustration Friday entry for "Burning," illustrating something that I try to avoid burning...but sometimes I'm distractible. :) This was also my entry for They Draw and Cook, and it will be published in the TDAC cookbook!

. . . & Other Things

When I get a few sketching moments, I've been working on an illustration inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien's beautiful poem, "The Last Ship." There are still a lot of willow leaves to finish . . . and sketching has been a bit slower because I've also been working on . . . 

. . . a new 18" doll dress pattern, inspired by the "Hooverette" house dresses of the 1930s, now available for download at my sewing pattern site, Hint of History.

And . . .
If you love golden age illustrations like I do, here's a link to the online book Old French Fairy Tales, with high-resolution illustrations by Virginia Frances Sterrett.
