illustration friday: lost


This weeks ill friday was inspired by a conversation with my fiance Jenn. Basically, a picture popped up in my head of her as a little girl wandering off from her parents with Gunther. Something I'd always do as a kid. Anyhoo, random thought here, random thought there. Illustration finished. I'd be lost without her.

Very nice. Great job at portraying the "lost" mood. I really like the expression in your line work and coloring.

I love your illustration. Your style is very bold- I definately felt the loneliness of the character.

I love this...it shows the tender side of the esteemed sick one! I love how you've centered Jenn amongst the legs of the big people rushing here and there, and I love how seems to be so patiently waiting to be found as she hugs Gunther. How lovely too that you've translated this childhood story into a metaphor for your life together. Awww.....:>>>

She looks very sad and lost, her dolly Gunther looks shocked! Very touching :)

Love the contrast between bg and first plane!.
Cute character and she is really lost!
Great work!
One question: Do you really live in "Chula Vista"?
I'm from Madrid, what a great spanish name (it's like Cool sight)
