Camille and Winston

Here is are my little characters Camille and Winston. I must tell you that I love
creating characters. They live in my head until they are expressed through pen
and ink and watercolor onto paper. Creating characters gives us a chance to express ourselves
as well. Maybe relive your childhood through a character. Or create that person that you would like to be or someone that you remember from the past.
It gives us the ability to play and dream! I encourage ALL of
our WAWE members to really try to do this prompt. You never know what magic
YOU will create that could possibly be the beginnings of a great story book, animation short,
greeting card line, or even toy! And you don't know who or how you will inspire other members. he he he he! Happy creating!!

I totally agree! This is a great prompt and you've done a fantastic job once again! I love all the characters that float around, and it's always so much fun to get them down on paper.

Your characters are always so charming, and I love them! Well done V!!

Camille and Winston are really great, and Winston is such a cute bunny! They look like they need a story. Can't wait to see what they do next week!
