The little match girl

It has been a long while since I last posted. I am terrible about updating. Here is my final for my VAILL 310 class. I don't even know what my grade is yet... well I like it. I wanted to do something with snow in it, I thought of Hans Christian Andersen because I knew he had some fairytales with snow in them. I chose The Little Match Girl, it is a very tragic story. Here is the story if you aren't familiar with it:

IF "Instinct"

It started out as a regular hunting trip and ended up a race for their lives. Instinct told him he would survive if he could just stay ahead of his friend...
I made this pretty quickly in Photoshop for Illustration Friday, topic: instinct.

IF "time"- bomb (womb)

I have finally done an illustration for Illustration Friday! The topic is "time." I am currently expecting a baby in April. As much as I want to have my sweet little baby, I have some anxiety about going through the birthing process again (I had a unmedicated birth with my first son). So this piece hopefully shows my feelings about the inevitability of child birth. I feel like the time is coming too quickly. (made in Illustrator)


So here is one I finished in Illustrator last week. The colors are more brilliant in the original, I'll have to figure out why they changed. We were given a fortune cookie for the assignment. the instructor asked us to illustrate our fortune. Mine read: "You will do well to expand your horizons." My husband helped me come up with the initial idea and I took off with it. The baby is trying to expand his space and of course the woman is expanding both physically and she is expanding to a new stage in her life. The style is supposed to be loosely based on the painting style used on Russian black lacquer boxes (palekh) and byzantine iconic paintings.
