Running like lighting 

I finally made an original illustration of the cartoon I drew on my iPad Brushes app 2 years ago. Originally, this cartoon of my friend was created for a beer label.

Now there is also a watercolor illustration for the house!

Dancing your own dance

Just as my writing tends to be heavily autobiographical, so does my art. Most characters in my cartoons are inspired by people in my world. This drawing is no exception. 

My dear friend Laura was a dancer once upon a time, and this year she is celebrating a milestone birthday. For her big day, I came up with this cartoon of her dancing in a swirly garden and basking in the sunlight.

Watercolor pencil

It started as a minimalist piece, but in the end I had to go full color. 🙂 

I loved experimenting with swirly borders and practicing people in motion.  I so relish making cartoons of (and for) my friends.

 

Happy birthday, Laura!

Strike a pose

 

This watercolor pencil drawing is inspired by my recent accomplishment of making it to Santiago de Compostella, a 500 mile trek across Northern Spain. 

Dani and I posed in front of the cathedral for a victory picture, just like every other pilgrim walking into the square after completing the Camimo de Santiago.
