illustration friday - blanket

click to see large

first posting to illustration friday
(sorry for the double post on I.F., just now figuring this out).

This weeks theme....
blanket.

This is a illustration I did for
"the remembering stone"
farrar, straus, giroux.

Always loved this image, the delight
of the slow descent of the blanket, and the little momentary
cave it makes.

thanks all, for the kind words.

happy to have found this site, I love to see what people come up with, and really great to see a lot of illustration. (and hopefully, it will help push me to do more work, and start putting my illustration shingle out again)

oh I love pyjamas. And blankets and beds, for the matter. But your illustration has such a pyjama-y feeling to it.
