The *simple* act of blowing on a dandelion head. I had to work to keep from overworking this. :) It can be a challenge to "keep it simple." For IllustrationFriday.

I love the idea and how it turned out! Actually the first post on Illustration Friday, which really caught the "simple"-topic in my opinion. Thanks for the inspiring picture. :)

This illustration is very beautiful! I think you did a great job on your shadows on the woman and yet maintained such simplicity in the overall concept of the illustration- I love the detail in the firefly!

I am not used to comment blogs, mainly because my english is not very good.
But when I saw your illustration i had to say something!
Concept, drawing, colours,... What a beautiful illustration! I love it!

PD. Did you made the sevillian chair? ;-)

Thank you very much! And yes, I did try to make the chair--but it didn't turn out very well. ;)
