Vincent and Gossiping Magpies by IreneShpak Vincent and Gossiping Magpies by IreneShpak
Hello, darlings :wave:

I thought I'd post this illustration. Done this a while ago as a test illustration for a book I was planning. I'm very happy with it but... I'm not happy with the story and I just couldn't get excited enough to do the whole book. Maybe one day...

Acrylics on watercolour paper

Oh yeah, Cheburashka is very sweet but he's somebody else's creation, isn't he? ;)

I have ambitions to do illustration like this too, so I fully understand the challenges you went through. The characters and creatures look professionally drawn and painted. You will be very successful in this area - hopefully the ideas and enthusiasm will come back. :meow:

Love it IreneShpak. Really delicate feel to it, despite the lovely, positive colouring. You have a deft touch.
