(I finished this yesterday. I’ve had lots of drawing to do for a real-life assignment, that’s taken priority and kind of pushed my blog to the back-burner. But I won’t give this up! It’s been too good for me!!!)
This is sort of a combo deadline finisher - it works for my pikaland assignment #2 (combining what I know with what I love) and my maurice sendak illustration. I wanted to depict someone reading Where the Wild Things Are, and being cozy and happy and content. (Well, really my first idea was a girl crying and reading and eating the book, but I thought that is only borderline appropriate.) I also wanted lots of detail, as that’s been my goal for a while, and added patterns as much as I could. I’m fairly happy with the outcome - good not great. Some texture would be nice. As would a few shadows. Ooh, and a pattern on the chair. Whoo!
