New Illo

I am working on a piece about endangered animals - here is a pelican that I just illustrated. I am particularly fond of pelicans, find them fascinating and they remind me of home. I love working in this style of mixed media, the illustration evolves as I work on it, I really don't go into it with a preconceived idea - it is so much fun to work this way. I love how the colors and textures came together here.

Love it. I really like pelicans, too. They look so awkward, but are so graceful.

I love its simplicity. It sort of reminds of Eric Carl, although you do have your own style. I'm wondering if it is collage and do you paint your own papers?

Thanks so much - Holly, to answer your question - yes collage, yes I do paint my papers and I also work digitally - always different with each illustration.
