IF: Disguise

I had SO many idea's for this week's Illustration Friday word, mostly movies I love.
I decided on the "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" scene with Truly disguised as a doll.

"What do you see
You people gazing at me
You see a doll on a music box
That's wound by a key
How can you tell
I'm under a spell
I'm waiting for love's first kiss
You cannot see
How much I long to be free
Turning around on this music box
That's wound by a key
Yearning, Yearning
While I'm turning around and around..."

IF: Search

In search of buried treasure! Arghhhhh...
This week I was inspired by memories of playing on the clothes line as kids.
I definitely had an awesome childhood, playing make believe with my siblings.

When I saw the topic on Illustration Friday this week, I thought of a famous time keeper:

Wee Willie Winkie

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown,
Rapping at the window, crying through the lock,
"Are the children all in bed, for now it's eight o'clock?"

"Let's start at the very beginning...
When you read you begin with? ABC!"
("Sound of Music" reference whenever I can!)

I have a new baby nephew and my sister-in-law has asked me to make an Alphabet to hang in his room. I'll be creating it with paper so they will be layered pieces.
Suggestions for what I should draw with each letter are welcome!
I want to keep it simple and cute for this project.
Here is what I have in mind for the style so far:

The colors match his bedding. I will be posting my sketches for this project on Instagram, so if you would like to follow me, you can. I will also be asking for suggestions on this project and future projects at my Facebook page too.

Though these images are going to stay pretty basic, I will be doing something a little more involved for an upcoming project, also to do with the alphabet. 
Stay tuned for that! (Hint: Comic Con)

Full Steam Ahead!

Happy 2014!
I'm excited to be making new goals for myself this year.
Both personal and art related.
I'm definitely making it a goal to be posting more on my blog this year.
I'll post a piece at least once a week, no matter how good or bad they are...
So here's to a great year of experimenting with new, fun projects!

My first post of the year, "I think I can..."
