Illustration Friday ~ GHOST

"O Death, rock me asleep, Bring me to quiet rest, Let pass my weary guiltless ghost Out of my careful breast."

Once I found this Anne Boleyn quote for "Ghost," the rest sort of fell into place. Anne was notorious not only for being Queen Consort of King Henry VIII (and mother of Queen Elizabeth I), but also for her beheading on charges of adultery and treason on 19 May 1536. Once I nailed down this concept for my "Ghost" entry, it all felt creepy and very Halloween-appropriate.

Anne's ghost was created with Micron pens and colored pencils.

Illustration Friday - SMITTEN

From Berlitz Publishing's "Hide This Spanish/French/Italian Book" series. The only one not smitten is the girlfriend at the table. I think she's quite annoyed.
