Illustration Friday - Craving

Flora never stopped craving sunflower seeds, in fact she would eat handfuls of them throughout the day and often leave a trail behind her.
(Flora and I are quite similar!)

Lovely sweet sunny smile! She is a cutie and I love this super sunny character. You lifted me up, I would love to have sunflower grown in my garden.
Thanks Amy.

Your husband's show looks amazing! I can't think beyond two dimensions. Hehe :)

Great illustration! :)

matt dawson said...

Great graphic quality to this one Amy.... love the dotted line conveying the growth of the flower, and a judicious (and delicious) use of halftone pattern never did anyone any harm :) PS. well done to your husband and yourself on the installation...sorry not to be able to see it for real, very nice cast shadows from the river piece!

matt dawson said...

PPS. forgot to say... really liked the one lowered eyebrow, gives her a mystery agenda...?! ;)

Such sweet sunshiney work! Great! Yes, eggplant is in the nightshade family. I makes me swell up a bit too.

erin said...

such great textures, love it! reminds me so much of my treasured volume of "a child's garden of verses" that I had when I was kid.

mauricio salmon said...

very cute! nice and clean.

ValGalArt said...

This is so perfect! I love sunflowers and the seeds, what's not to love? Your husband is amazing and mind boggling!!! I really find the ideas based on his bike trips fascinating and in his porfolio the installation Zoetrope and the bike with wings are awesome! I never realized that scabs are like little mountains, that blows my mind :)

Shugar said...

oh how cute!! :)
my hamster loved sunflower seeds and often left a trail of the seed husks too!

Diana said...

Another great illo Amy. You must get on to illustrating a kid's book.
