Illustration Friday

I recently signed up to Facebook, not really knowing why. It's turned out to be really interesting as a way of making contact with an endless collection of other children's illustrators and authors around the world, as well as right here in Sheffield (what is the collective noun I wonder...).

So I've been avoiding doing any work this morning, by 'researching' on Facebook. I justify this, by calling it inspirational, which it is, but I see I can easily lose hours this way, so I'd better take myself in hand.

One thing I have found that I would like to share with you, is Illustration Friday: a lovely idea created by illustrator Penelope Dullaghan. Each week, a one word subject is emailed out to hundreds of illustrators. If they have time and feel inspired, they produce an image on the theme. I found it through Mike Boldt and these are a couple of illustrations he has done for it recently. One is 'grow' the other 'visitor'. Great eh?

That's what I thought. I cheated a bit this time as I remembered a perfect illustration I already had!
