Illustration Friday – "Poise"

[27 Mar 2009 | By | 18 Comment(s) | 12,167 views ]

A little break from the robots, today. I finished Series 1 of the Robot World, which are going to be on loan to the Museum of Science in Boston for a bit. Not sure of exactly when they’ll be on display, but I’ll let you guys know the details when I do, so if any of you are in the Boston area you can go visit them! So a little break before I start Series 2.

This doll dancer was a creation from a while back–she was a character in a book I was collaborating on–so I decided to reinterpret her in watercolor. I think she shows great poise!
