Illustration Friday: Remedy

This drawing was also my entry for Jillian Tamaki’s “Summer Myths” contest, which I only found out about on Monday – the day it closed. It is pen and ink and – for once! – the original is slightly larger than what you see here. The remedy connection is to do with sunburn.

The drawing didn’t make the shortlist for the contest, but some stunning pieces did. You can see them on Jillian Tamaki’s blog here: Results! My favourite is Roman Muradov‘s picture of the “ancient Poldevian tradition of burning post-it drawings of curious creatures accumulated through dull summer jobs. Usually performed on August 28th (29th if you’re left-handed).

In other news, here is one of several figures I illustrated for Nicole Murphy’s semi-secret project. The others were coloured, but this one was surplus to requirements and only got a touch of shading.
