Robots

Posted in Art, paintings with tags on March 31, 2010 by billifrench

These two are also apart of my smaller sized paintings collection. When I visited Chattanooga, TN in January, I went into this little book/local artist store. I saw a few very small paintings of these robots in front of comic strips and thought they were really cool, so I wanted to try out the robots for myself. Here are two robots, one lady and one man. Sorry for the poor images, I need a better camera. 😦

Star Wars

Posted in Art, paintings with tags on March 30, 2010 by billifrench

I have a collection growing of smaller sized paintings. This one is one of the first I have done and it focuses around my collection of Star Wars mugs. I am a huuuugee Star Wars fan, so I thought that using them as the subject matter for a painting was only appropriate to show off my nerdiness. This is an acrylic on 8 x 10in. canvas. It is available to purchase, so if you are interested in buying this painting please email me: Billifrench@gmail.com.

Relay for life

Posted in Art, Illustrations, Relay for Life with tags on March 26, 2010 by billifrench

My boyfriend’s mom is a volunteer for Relay For Life charity event that is taking place in Olney, MD on June 12, 2010. It is a big Fundraiser that The American Cancer Society holds all over the US to raise awareness and celebrate lives lost as well as those who have survived cancer. This is my second time helping out for this event. This year I have created two illustrations that I plan to sell copies of and the proceeds can be donated to the cause. Both illustrations focus around the lavender colored cancer ribbon for cancer awareness.

Please let me know if you are interested in either illustrations and I can print them out for you, or you can attend the Relay For Life event.

To find out more information about Relay For Life please visit their website. http://www.relayforlife.org/relay/.

I will also be auctioning off a painting at the event which I will post photos of soon.

Big ball of yarn

Posted in Art, Illustrations, Women with tags on March 25, 2010 by billifrench

I don’t think I am finished with this one either, I don’t know if I like it too much. I think I need to add some more detail to the background and maybe change the colors around too. But I really like the enormous ball of yarn!

The Little old man who lived in the Timberland

I did this a few days ago, and I am not really sure if I am finished yet. I am debating on adding more color or not because I kind of like just having the boot being the center of attention, but I looooveee color! So if any of you have some opinions or ideas about it let me know!

Grandpa gets a haircut

What if there were mischievous little redheads running around cutting off grandpas unusually long nose hairs……

My very first!

Hello everyone! I have finally started a blog and now I can share all my artwork with other people besides the little group of friends and family that I see everyday. Here is my very first blog entry and illustration!

I have started to get back into pen and ink drawings, so basically this is my re-introduction to pen. I added color through photoshop.
