Here is my latest creation for The Illustrator Group Soup gals. I had the hardest time picking a background color for this. I played around in Photoshop and looked at every color of the rainbow. Its still open for suggestion if anyone has any other ideas. I'm not sure why I chose to put Ms. Pippi in a Starry Night landscape- something about her character makes me think of Van Gogh- part chaotic, part intense, part swirly.
This one's entitled "Ear Puffs" and is an interpretation of our visit Downtown to see the trees all lit up. It was a fabulous winter evening until I was forced to walk several blocks in the cold with one mucus-filled baby in one arm, and one thrashing, screaming, sobbing, kicking 4-year-old in the other. Although extremely memorable for the mommy, apparently the "ear puffs" were more memorable to the 4-year-old.
