Illustration Friday: Crooked! And also, Which Image for a Poster?

Below, is the piece I'm submitting (with its title listed) for this week's "Illustration Friday," for the theme of "Crooked." 

1.  "Clowning Around."

With her mischievous head tilt, the main character in this piece is holding her head at a "crooked" angle.

(Incidentally, there's a place I like in the LBC called "The Crooked Duck"-- it's a place to eat, and while I've only had their coffee, I am a fan mainly because of the fun name-- this challenge made me think of that).
For others who want to submit to I.F., the link is here: http://illustrationfriday.com

Now, the blog's being opened up advice from teh Interwebz-- from likely mostly Facebook peeps, once I've posted this over there (although any strangers just seeing this via I.F. or elsewhere are welcome to comment as well).  With various big conventions coming up, I want to figure out what new things to have.

As I've recently been doing this "Faces" series with portraits, and hidden hair and face imagery (which is out in a little zine I made), I want to figure out which of the faces people like, and which ones people would like to see in postcard (about 3"x5"), print (9"x12" ish), or poster (11"x17" or bigger) form.

I've put up five, that I was thinking of-- and, I am putting it out there on the Internet to find out which ones people like-- and/or, which ones people like better as something small, or which ones people think would be cool enough to be bigger, tack-onto-the-wall-able prints or posters.

Look at the first picture (my I.F. submission) to start, then scroll down to see the other five (the last one being what I submitted a couple of weeks ago to I.F., as well the image I'm using for my NYCC icon-- and therefore, perhaps something I should print? Hrmm).

Any help would be much appreciated (-:  Thanks  --!!

"Imagination" for Illustration Friday


So, this is part of a series I'm doing called "Faces," showing cartoon portraits with hidden imagery in and around the heads.  This one's called "Goth-waii," for obvious reasons.  See any hidden ponies, puppies, bears, or kitties?  

Oh, wait.  I just said what they were... so, effectively un-hid them.  Whoops.

In any case, the I.F. prompt is "Imagination," and if the above girl has these critters pouring forth from her because of what's on her mind?  Well then, she does have an overactive "imagination."

Haven't had any time to update to blogs in forever.  That said, since I am using this image here, I will also link to another link where this picture is shown, if one searches my name:


Nerves and excitement and yes, oh my!

In any case, here's the link to more samples of the "Faces" series:
