IF: FLYING + FREE COLORING PAGE


This is a sketch I created in the airplane while flying to Greece. I liked the idea, but never had the time to refine it and take it to color. I thought it was appropriate for Illustration Friday.




This is a coloring page I created for my daughter's class. You may click on it and print it. I'll be visiting her class for career day and speaking to the kids about the world of graphic design and illustration. How fun!

Hi Edrian. Nice work. Looks like we have the same idea with coloring pages - lol I love the accompanying sketches. That's a nice touch. I came up with the coloring pages the same way too... Went to my daughters class to read them a book and thought it would be fun to bring along coloring pages. What a big hit - so I decided to post them on my blog too. Your blog is fantastic. Thanks for the comment on mine.

The little bird in the sketch is adorable. And I like how businesslike the bird on the books is. Have fun at your daughter's class.

Your line work is AWESOME! What a great use of thick and thin and your gift of making something that is really difficult look easy. I hope you go ahead with the color on your flying piece that you created on the plane. The illustration is just so charming.... what a joy to be the little one flying off for the first time!.
I remember that feeling!

I love your sketch. Your'e a better woman than I, sketching on the plane. All I could do on my last trip was zone out watching a movie, hee hee. Also love your coloring page. Good luck and have fun on career day!
