“What do you think, Mr. Toad?”

I am currently preparing for the upcoming IlluxCon convention which means I have to create some traditional pieces. It’s a challenge as I am so used to working digitally but I am learning a lot from it.

Here is one of the more successful pieces I have completed. It is colored pencil on gray carson’s pastel paper and measures 8″ x 10″. It’s been matted to fit a 11″x14″ frame.

The matted piece. Marble and black, bevel cut double mat.

    How beautiful! I’m a lover of frogs as well as faeries! You can’t have a fantasy imagination without a frog or two! I’m sure this piece will sell fast at the convention!
