I’ll pause here while you heave a collective sigh of
exasperation relief. Heh.
This week’s topic was ‘swept’ and since I’m not feeling all wordy right now (was that another sigh of relief I just heard?), I’ll just get started.
- Swept by Elizabeth Rose Stanton : Love the colors. Love the movement. Especially love the little people getting blown every which way.
- Swept by Julia Marshall : Another piece with great movement, and the added bonus of a frightening shark looming just below the surface.
- Swept (away) by Angela Pascale : The passenger in this boat seems to be taking a much more peaceful ride. I’m guessing there are no sharks in this water.
- Swept by Catherine Swenson : I loved all the images of sweeping bodies of water this week. This one has such a tranquil color palette. I love how the fish are hopping out of the water in such a leisurely fashion.
- Swept by Nicky Linzey : Another water-themed illustration. Fantastic color palette and I love the reference photos too.
- Swept by Valeriane Leblond : Gorgeous rich colors and wind-swept mists – just beautiful.
- Swept Away by Gumnut : Simple and quiet, yet there is much going on.
- Aurora by Oliver Flores : This piece is a great example of how spending a little extra time to get things just right can really pay off. Beautiful work.
- Swept by Jillian Ailsa : I love all of the textures and patterns used in this piece. And the expressions on the raccoons faces are pretty entertaining too. (Psst…go give this IF newcomer some love!)
- (wind)swept by Koesje Koene : I just can’t resist and adorable dog (that’s how I ended up with my three monsters – heh).
- Swept by Linda J. Calverly : Such a sweet illustration. I wish my backyard was this attractive.
- Spider 2 by Alexander Ten Berge : Typically, spiders send me into fits of uncontrollable girlish screaming. Not this guy though. Must be the hat.
- Swept by Rod MacGregor : I love the explanation of how this idea came about and the fact that it was drawn with one continuous line.
- Swept by Zari : This time rock covers paper. Sweet.
- Swept by Niki Maritz : This illustration was quite literally ‘swept’…right onto the pavement. Very cool.
