'M' is for Mask

Added on by ellapointe.

This weeks Illustration Friday Challenge was the word 'Mask'.

I have been interested in illustrated letters for a while now and thought I would give it a try. It was both challenging and interesting to try and create a specific character even though her face is completely covered with an oversized mask, similarly to balance a recognizable letter of the ABC that would still feel like it was something else as well, maybe a ginger cat...

Illustration Friday: 'Temptation'

Added on by ellapointe.

This week's topic was the word 'Temptation'. 

As a child whenever we had cake in the house, which was not very often, I would ask: "what's this cake for?". Hoping the answer would be something like:" oh, we can eat it right now if you like!'. Alas, this was seldom the case. and so I would have to wait patiently until the time of the event which the cake was intended for. It may have only been an hour or so away but it felt like eternity to resist the temptation… Maybe that's what this little girl is feeling...

Illustration Friday: 'Vanity'

Added on by ellapointe.

Visiting my sister in London. She kindly gave me free reign to cut into her piles of Bridal magazines, left over from when she planned her wedding about five years ago. It's funny how I originally had the idea to play with the contrast of big very extravagant figures and a small plain one, I was thinking about an urban setting and a little girl, perhaps a clothes store?! As my idea evolved further I landed at a well known fairytale which enabled my imagination to go wild... Can you recognize it?
