Illustration Friday

Al was upset when his new wife Peggy did not receive the welcome into the family he thought she deserved.

I downloaded a free trial of Corel Painter and decided to try it out for Illustration Friday this week. I'm still getting used to the program; however, using it on the Modbook is pretty awesome. I've been working in Adobe Illustrator for so long now, it's refreshing to use a program that simulates traditional media.

I was planning on adding much more to this illustration, especially the alien family and their reactions to the wife. Eventually, I'll get back to it, some day, hopefully.

Cookbook Contest

The company I work for donates a great amount of money to the Light the Night Lukiemia and Lymphoma foundation. We have fundraisers all year long, one of them includes a cookbook full of recipes from the employees. This year the theme was cooking around the world and they held a contest for the cover art. This was my entry for the contest. I did not win, but it is always fun to participate in the contests.

Illustration Friday

Miranda enjoyed the opera immensely, especially due to her magnifying glasses. Unfortunately, she was the only one who could see!

Another very late post for Illustration Friday this week. I'm starting to see a pattern here. I'm having tons of fun working on these posts; unfortunately, having a full time job gets in my way.
