Believe it or not, I'm trying to scratch out time for my website and some promotional material. I think I'll make this new illustration a postcard advertising my services. Besides being cute (cute's really big right now) I think it shows my sense of humor (note the little guinea pig laughing and pointing at the cat, even though he's dressed as the baby). Also worked in some type and digital pattern applications, trying to show I can do more than paint. I like it, the little girl is based on a cute girl that comes into the store a lot.

These are actually 2 different drawing/watercolors that I put together digitally. They're both from the 1760's, and the pink and blue is a play on boy and girl fashions. In keeping with fashion illustration I left out the face details so the viewer can focus on the clothing. I like the gesture of the watercolor next to the tightly controlled pen work. I'll do a few more...
