I love the www.illustrationfriday.com theme this week. I have a lot of fun illustrating for children. The top self portrait is my own personal take on a favorite childhood book. The Princess and the Pea. I so relate to her delicate sensibilities! Obviously, if I were a princess my world would include exotic leopards, Scarlet macaws and ruby red tiaras. The only flaw is the hurdle of getting up in the night to go to the bathroom. And the neck cramps from sleeping on that stiff looking circular velvet pillow. I guess every fairy tale is fractured.
Here I am at princess training school. A.K.A prom.
Here I am again. Do you see the tiara through the fog? Dreams really do come true. At least in my head.
