Friends!


Here's a couple of little images I did for the May 2009 issue of The Friend Magazine. A little "Funstuf" activity about being a good friend. I experimented with a new technique for this image. I first colored the images in photoshop- using a technique that ends up looking a bit like watercolor. Then I printed the illustrations on watercolor paper and finished them off with pastel pencils. I really like the outcome and want to experiment with this more!

cute stuff. The top one reminds me of my own kids with my son's MP3 player.

The first thing I do when I get the friend is browse it for your illustrations. I was so happy to see this one. It is so cute! You are amazing.

Wow Shawna! These are so amazing. And it's cool that you're doing digital painting. I'm so impressed.

They look really great! My brother Michael was really into that technique before he left on his mission. It takes a lot of time but it looks really neat.
