illustration friday - 'pretend'


Sometimes I pretend that I am an artist, trying to make a living as an illustrator.

Wow, I really love this piece. The lines are so elegant, the figure so fluid and evocative, the composition gives it such depth, and the color work is very emotional. Great illustration . . . I really enjoyed it!

I feel like we are all pretending that. Our day will come. Keep up the good work!

Digital monoprint or monoprint? Lovely in any case, beautiful composition and palette.

Lovely!

Though, I don't see the difference in being an artist and an illustrator. The business end of it is really the only distinguisher.

Illustrators ARE artists. One may not be considered "fine art" but both are respectable art venues. This has been a long standing argument among art snobs. You, my dear are an artist :)
