This is an A3 size pic I drew based on "there was an old woman who lived in a shoe..."
I wanted to do something a little bit different with it - so I flipped the shoe upside down and then crammed it with enough mischeivious looking critters that would flip out any old woman. Mostly, I try to make my pictures fun and colourful and a little bit crazy - which is what I remember loving to look at when I was a kid.
It's super miniture here - sorry :(
Some features my students have loved: I put number 27 on the mailbox and there's 27 critters.
Also, on the blocks on the front path I put all the letters from my family's first names (and coloured the blocks to match each person's fave colour)
My Sam-boy loves the guy on the pogo stick the best & the fish in the fish bowl. The pogo stick guy is also featured in some other pics of mine (and now that I think about it, I often have fish randomly in my pictures too). I try to give each little critter their own vibe and personality.
I don't do perspective well b/c I've never learnt stuff like that - but once my art teacher told me that my naivety is part of my magic. I'll take that philosophy and use it to do whatever I like, yeah? Haha - love my art teacher who was so cool to me...
I draw for fun and get into it for seasons and then don't draw at all for months. But I am working on a new project at the moment. OooOooh...

Sorry for the poor quality. I didn't scan it - just took a photo and it's a little grainy...
Hope you're all having a grand week. The sun is brilliant here and the beach is sparkling.
