My first Illustration Friday submission! This week’s theme was “parade” and I interpreted it thusly:
It’s been a long time since I made a silhouette and I now I just wanna keep on keepin’ on. Coincidentally, I’ll be hearing Kara Walker speak tomorrow at the University of Chicago. Quite excited. Should be good inspiration. And speaking of which, here’s a cool Kara Walker link, with a neat slideshow of her at work: click click. I love that she references paperdolls. I’ve got two paperdoll books on my “instructional” book shelf not but four feet behind me. This may also be a good time to tell you how much I love organizing books. I love it. I’d rent out my services if I thought anyone would take me up on it.
