New Work! Year Of The Water Dragon!

© Holly DeWolf- 2012 Year Of The Water Dragon
Happy Chinese New Year! I couldn't wait to illustrate this little dragon for two reasons:
1. Dragons are cool to illustrate. 2.  My girls absolutely love dragons and asked me to create one! So Of course I couldn't say no! 

As you can see, I posted the work as it progressed. I resisted adding text and left the illustration as it is. Next, I'll start working on the two rough ideas I posted last week. Need more time... need more time!

Another New Illustration In Progress- Clair de Lune

© Holly DeWolf- 'Clair de Lune' Rough

I love narrative and I love music so illustrating my favourite piece by Debussy has always been on my list of illustrations. I think I've got enough to keep me busy til next week!

New Illustration In Progress- Starfish & Coffee...

The latest work in progress is for a Children's publishing promo based on the song Starfish & 
Coffee! I came up with this idea way back in 2008 but I shelved it! Today I brought it back to 
life. I'm now looking forward to adding colour to it...finally!

High Hopes!

1st Illustration Of The Year- 'Not Yet'

© Holly DeWolf- 'Not yet'

I'm starting off the new year on the right foot with new work.  I have higher hopes for this coming year. 

Which brings me to my illustration... Life isn't a straight path. Sometimes decisions need to be approached lightly, methodically along with much thought. I've been practicing leading with my head while letting my heart be a consultant of sorts when it comes to decisions. I love being optimistic but being realistic seems to be winning out these days. Hopefully down the road I'll be able to mingle the two.  

I'm not making any resolutions this year. I've decided to go against the grain. So instead, I'm going to work hard, interject some much needed fun when I can and continue to have high hopes!
