Happy Birthday!

I actually have an illo for last week's prompt, but the colors aren't quite what I want them to be, so I'll post that one later this week. THIS illo is one I did when I first started getting serious about illustrating. It was fun to do. I feel like I've improved since then, however (isn't that a nice feeling?).

Yup this is so cheery and full of life and energy! I love what you did with the lettering and color! Very festive and fun! If this was a birthday card for sale in a gift shop I would run to purchase. Great work.

it does. sometimes i look back to my very first posts (works) on my blog and compare them with my current works. they are so different. it's nice when you know that your confidence is getting better and better. it showed on your strokes! anyway your piece is very lovely!

I love your use of colour in this design (something I always struggle with). Just beautiful!

I love how so much is going on in this picture - and I've completely fallen in love with the shaggy blue dog:-) Really lovely illustration.
