When I have an art block I visit Illustration Friday. Every Friday a new topic is posted and artist have one week to submit their art to Illustration Friday’s online gallery and see what everyone else is sharing too.

Talk is this week’s suggested theme. I had a few ideas come to mind to illustrate this week’s topic. One idea was to draw a map of the Earth and illustrate world peace. A few weeks ago I had worked with a bunch of deaf students, and thought about illustrating the word “Talk” in American Sign Language.

The final direction is what you see now of these two creatures. I’ve made artwork of these little creatures before, and I really like how simple and expressive they are. They allow me to play with and spotlight texture.
