IF Seed

I have actually been inspired by the last two Illustration Friday topics... but since my Computer Graphics class ended on the firsst, this is the first one I've had time to sketch. For wrinkles I wanted to do a picture of an elephant... I love elephants and there wrinkly, tough skin and their slow (seemingly) gentle ways. I'll post it if I ever get back to it.

For seed this image just popped into my head. It reminds me of the majic beans from Jack and the Beanstalk. I could and may still try interpreting it in Illustrator; even if I don't I am happy with the way the sketch turned out:)

Hi Julie! Yes, I still look at our class blogs every now and then. I haven't been keeping my blog up but still don't have a new Mac either. I have signed up for classes for fall, however and maybe one of these days will buy a new laptop.

thanks for the link to the Ankeny center. I may send my Angular Honalee to them. fun!!

Keep up the great ideas! I am also taking Kathy Hocker's Nature Drawing class in July....should be fun...hopefully not too wet.

take care,

Hi Teri!

I wasn't sure if you would find your way over to my more "active" blog or not... It's good to hear you are staying artistically active! I thought about taking Kathy Hockers class, but then it was only 1 credit. I am taking Serigraphy and Advanced Web Site Design and Development in the fall. I need the summer off, I think:)

Have a great summer... I'll keep popping in to see your new work! julie
