Illustration Friday - JUNGLE


I've been into patterns lately, and what more unique and fun patterns are there than those of jungle animals?!

Colored pencil and black Micron pens.

Great one with your "trademark" style!

I love it! Beautiful patterns and I like the lettering too. You got such rich colors--not easy with colored pencils.

Ellen said...

Very nice! I am particularly fond of the "N!"

carla said...

These are wonderful! This is a fine showcase for your great work with line and pattern. Funny...this reminds me of the wallpaper that was on the walls of our house when we moved in...there was a different jungle pattern in every room. Yikes! I like much better on the animals and here. Beautiful work, Amy:>

What a great idea and no animals were harmed in the making of these letters! I love it, the N is so clever!!!

Great idea for jungle! You captured the vibrant colors of each animal and their texture, something not so easy to do. Good Job! it's a lot of fun to look at too.

TXArtcGal said...

FABULOUS!!! Love all of the textures!

Chickengirl said...

beautiful Patterns! Thats hand-done? Yikes you got skills!

Trevor Pitt said...

Very cool idear' Amy. I'm doing something similar for my as-of-yet unborn nephew's nursery. I'm breaking down his name and doing each letter as a rainforest animal. My fave is the "L"...but that's because I like Tigers...Bengals to be precise. :) All the letters are cool...you are the Letter-Man, er, Letter-Woman.
