Illustration Friday - SAFE


I always thought that Joeys had a neat way to travel...and a safe place to hang out.

Watercolor pencils, colored pencils and Micron pens.

I always wondered how (or, hope, if) Kangaroos toilet trained their young before letting them ride!

melba said...

I am looking at blogs with my 2 year old on my lap and she really liked your Kangaroo (me too!)

jordan said...

Great idea. I had the same sort of thing in mind, only with people instead of kangaroos. Nice work.

String said...

Definately got the concept right there! Lovely illo.

Rrramone said...

Twisselman said...

Great choice for the theme. Don't think it can be topped for getting across the idea. Wonderful.

Bron Smith said...

Another well rendered drawing and a unique solution to the word. I like your watercolor pansies too.

Geninne said...

Kim Carney said...

I love it! You can't get any safer than that ;)

Jana Bouc said...

This is so perfect in concept and execution. I LOVE kangaroos--used to have a dog named Kangaroo. It made me happy to see your illo. Beautiful!

Katrine K said...

always wondered what it would feel like jumping thru the outback at 40 mph in a pouch. joeys are great wonderful illo of mum her wee one

carla said...

This is so sweet, Amy! It's really perfect for the topic, and it's so wonderfully done. I've been inundated with work since school started last week, so i never got around to looking at blogs. I missed your gorgeous painting of the pansies...wow! I love pansies, and you really brought them to life.

tiffinix said...

Perfect idea for the topic! And such a nice piece as well. I love the coloring and their cute little expressions!

Roz Foster said...

You know, sometimes when my boyfriend and I are walking errands downtown, I wish my boyfriend had a little pouch like that that I could ride in.

creative kismet said...

What a safe and snuggley idea! Beautiful!

Colorsonmymind said...

This is perfect for the prompt.

steve said...

fantastic--would have never thought of this!

Christy Beckwith said...

Oh very sweet. I wish I had a pouch to keep my nephew safe and out of trouble when I babysit :)

marisa said...

ah sweet. Great blog too! I like the way you mix up digital and traditional media

Gabrielle said...

Your colours are lovely!

ValGalArt said...

that pouch is the epitome of safe! Sweet and Loving, Amy!!!

Suzanne said...

Great idea! Your kangaroos look so sweet and peaceful. Lovely illo.

albina said...

Really ingenious: Both the marsupial anatomy and you illo of this safe heaven! Brilliant!

constanthing said...

Mommy's pauch is certainly a great place to 'hang out' :) Great work!

flossy-p said...

true, though I always thought it would be such an uncomfortable bumpy ride, makes me queezy just thinking about it.

great illo idea!

Pickledog said...

Joeys do have a pretty sweet deal. I wonder if any of kangaroo parents have problems with Joeys not wanting to leave home. Sleeping in the pouch 'til noon, having friends over to the pouch. Playing video games, eating snacks, and eventually setting up basement apartments in the pouch (rent free.)

Anywhoo.. very cute little roos Amy : )

annax said...

WOnderful kangaroo!! I love it!

kg said...

adorable! it doesn't get much safer than that. after all, so many baby "snugli"-type products try to simulate that very closeness b/t parent and child...

Ginger*:)* said...

Perfectly safe and a lovely thought.
A Mother's side or 'pocket' is always a safe place to be.

Tonje said...

Nice illustration. Very cute.

aynaku said...

thanx for your comment about "carabao"...yes it's a formidable bovine and a healthy milk producer..
;)
look forward to see more art from you!
