It’s Friday again and I am unsure how exactly we got here. This past week has been kind of a blur. I’m still in a bit of a haze, so please forgive any clumsy grammar or general nonsensical-ness in this week’s Friday Favorites.
It is spring now (at least, it’s supposed to be. It was snowing here yesterday when I dropped Sir off at school. Ugh.), and that conjures images of warmth and growth. Appropriately, this week’s topic was ‘cultivate’, which often brings to mind the same.
Again, I had a very difficult time narrowing my favorites down to a mere fifteen. There’s just too much freaking talent out there.
Here’s what I loved this week…
- Cultivate by Ginger Nielson : I love the way that both the agricultural and the relationship aspects of the word ‘cultivate’ are represented in this piece. Check out the pattern used in the sheep’s wool – very nice.
- Cultivate by Rita Balixa : This is just an adorable illustration all the way around. I especially love the chicken’s expression.
- Was Once a Gardener by Keszeg Agnes Rajzai : A brilliant series of illustrations. The detail in the tree people is fantastic.
- Cultivate by Lilly Blue : Beautiful and whimsical. Love.
- Cultivate by Robert Dunn : The detail in this piece is wonderful. And the color – perfection.
- Cultivate Your Dreams by Isabelle Cardinal : I love the concept and I especially love the execution. I have a similar dream of illustrating a book and I hope my dandelion will fly sooner rather than later.
- Cultivate by Jessica M. Lopez : Tiny bulbs cultivate their dreams of becoming tulips. Aww.
- Cultivate by Michelle Tessier : So fun – I especially love the trees and the water droplets.
- Cultivate by Roshini Pochont : I am a closet Totoro fan (shhh!), so this illustration makes me all kinds of happy!
- Cultivate by Angela Rozelaar : This little girl is just too adorable.
- Cultivate by Roberta Baird : This is such a sweet illustration and the use of color is just great.
- Cultivate by Dani Torrent : The composition and perspective in this piece are so interesting.
- The Dragon by Maria Bogade : This piece really is flawless. I can totally relate to this dragon’s victim. I have felt very much chewed up and spit out this week.
- Cultivate by Dave Palmer : Heh. Heh.
- Cultivate by Ryan Hernandez : A totally fun homage to ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ – the look on Seymour’s face is excellent!
