IF Poised

I am getting closer to being done with my astrology cards, and I will really miss doing them. I will have to think of something else to do. I was thinking of goddesses maybe... I can see Demeter surrounded by children. Anyway this week's topic is "poised" and I thought my Capricorn Seagoat looked poised.

Sagittarius Zodiac Illustration

This zodiac sign was the most challenging yet, as I knew it would be for me. I love centaurs though and sketched until I liked him. I learned a lot about the bow and arrow and how it is held. I remember shooting a bow and arrow in PE when I was in elementary school and really liked it, but never have done it again. Just an experience I guess and onto new stuff. Any Sagittarians out there? I have a Sagittarius rising sign.

Libra Zodiac Sign Astrology Card

Libras have been plentiful in my life, after saying that Leos have been few. I find it interesting, now that I think about it, the different people in my life and the signs they are - they are almost all the same. For quite awhile, especially when I was a teen and young adult I had Capricorn friends. I married into a family that is mostly Virgo. Funny how that is. Do you notice a pattern in your life?

Illustration Friday - Legendary

As I work through my my astrology cards I am on Leo which is represented by the lion, the legendary king of the jungle. I've known only a few Leos in my life, my dad for one, and I think he had the presence of a Leo. I am hoping to meet some more in my life.

IF Intricate

I have been illustrating a set of greeting cards with the twelve zodiac signs. I was doing Gemini and it turned out fairly intricate I think. It has different elements associated with the sign with the yellow and rainbow colors, butterflies, twins, Lily-of-the Valley flowers and Lavender flowers. What is your sign...

IF Breezy

Flower petals fly away on a breezy day. I think it would be great to walk through a field of flowers like this.
