A "Late" Illustration Friday

[21 Oct 2008 | By | 0 Comment(s) | 3,876 views ]

Appropriate topic at IF, as it is Tuesday, not last Friday. At the request of those who asked for a happier version of the marionette dancer.. She’s late too, but she doesn’t care, she’s found a frog!


I think I actually like here ‘sadder’ better though. Or at least the looseness of this drawing.

    I’ve always thought of puppets and marionettes as sad. They’re sort of haunting! Lovely line work.

    I love both version, the sad and the happy one.
    As you know dot, we all have emotion.
    So it’s not bad to have a bad day,
    think positively, tomorrow will always be so much better!
    By the way, you have a good pencil technique here.
    I better practise on mine.

  • Bella Sinclair [] :

    Oh, cool! This little marionette who’s broken free is really charming. I love both versions, but this week’s version has a dramatic contrast that’s just awesome.

    So much Halloween fun on your blog!
