Here is my post for the Illustration Friday theme, Sweater. This is a young Lana Turner in her 1937 screen debut. She is known as one of the first Sweater Girls; a type of actress particularly popular in the 1950's. She is wearing a short-sleeved sweater in this image.

Illustration Friday theme: Reverse

Here is my entry for Illustration Friday theme, Reverse. This depicts the Reverse Prayer yoga position. This posture is supposed to promote health benefits such as the release of tension in your shoulders and overall body. The pressure from your hands promotes a straightening of the spine. It also opens your shoulder joints.

Illustration Friday theme: Chicken

This is an illustration of King's Parade Park in NSW, Australia. I envisioned a scenario whereupon an urban park visitor would happen upon the unusual sight of a rooster strutting his way up a tree branch. I enjoy "fish out of water" sights and scenarios, and thought to make the rooster more prominent by making him stand out against a background of delicate tracery.
