Well here is an example of my "clumsy" attempt to use pen and ink, my first loved medium. Typically I would get about 3/4 done with an illustration and then make a mistake, smear it or the pen would drip, etc. You can see I was also trying to get as much texture in as I could and thus over working it! I love fabric collage for the shear fact I can rip someones head off and try again and again! And all the textures I can put in are yummy too~ !


  1. It's a lovely illustration.

  2. This is wonderful! What great action!!!

    I really do love this illustration Julia! I love the colors and such. Isn't there a way to correct. I don't know much about traditional medium. But I do like this!
