This week’s Illustration Friday theme is “proverb,” and I chose “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”… unless that apple is a witch’s poison apple! I’m in the mood for all things Halloween, so I’ve been looking for an excuse to doodle something spooky. I’m considering making this available as a seasonal print in the Calobee Doodles shop, although I fear all the black-on-black will be difficult to reproduce.
I started working on something simple for this week’s Illustration Friday topic, star gazing, and came up with this… catch any falling stars lately?
Then I started to wonder… what if the stars were gazing at us, too?
“Fireflies are nature’s sparklers.” I’m quite enchanted by this scene… the little girl reminds me of my daughter, although that wasn’t my intention when doodling. I suppose her sweet, inquisitive nature snuck into my subconscious when I was busy doing boring grown-up things like balancing my checkbook and loading the dishwasher. There’s nothing like a little kid to remind you it’s the simpler things in life that make the daily drudgery worthwhile.
Ah, but I digress. I hope this summery illustrative desktop wallpaper makes up for June’s slightly last-minute design. Click above to download!
