Nice, I like the all pink palette.

Mônica said...

So cute, I like to see how her feet are already up in the air. I like the monochrome, very sweet and simple.

Eric, what a different style for this week IF entry!
The icon in IF sites looks so much like those "Golden Book" characters.
and the full illustration just Simple marvelous, man!
Keep drawing!

Thanks Eli, Mónica, PuPu and Zime!

May, your comments always make me smile!

Jennifer, my oldest (who loves horses) is starting to get into Bella Sara. Can't wait to see what you've been up to.

Bella, you're right... this is definitely my youngest. She's not really big on 'sharing.'

Roberta, the hamster dance was awesome!

i really love the extremely limited palette. I have some of my parents 1950's children's books, and your style has a bit of a throwback to that. I love it!

Ellen Byrne said...

Oh, this is the sweetest image! I just love it!

Edrian Thomidis said...

Eric, Thanks for taking my poll. I think you are right, I don't have to choose a style.

I plan to focus on painting until I am more comfortable with that process, then I plan on practicing with photoshop/illustrator so that I can have both as options. Thanks for your feedback.

Also, I have added you to my side bar and my google reader so that I can keep up with your posts. You have a great blog!

I am tickled pink with your illustration. Love how she's just off the ground!

Bobo Cat said...

I can see how much she love her balloon, she's not let go any of them even she's lifting!

Eric Barclay said...

Thanks, Candace! I love those old children's books and advertising illustrations from the late 50's to the early 70's.

Thanks for stopping by, Froggie... and for the weekly laugh!

Thank you Diana!

Thank you Sheree... sounds like this is familiar territory... :-)

Hi Krisztina-- can't wait to see what you've been up to.

Thanks Ellen!

Thanks so much Edrian! I really enjoy your blog as well.

Thank you Julia!

Eric Orchard said...

The kind of hoard my 4 year old self could relate to! Love the style choice here.

The Green Telephone said...

All the blog names I could think of were already taken, so at the end I just sat staring out the window trying to think of something original, and there, in the window, I have my old green telephone - eureka! :-)

Eric Barclay said...

Thanks, Eric!

Thanks for the insight on the name, GT! We used to have an avocado green phone in our kitchen back when I was growing up... it matched the appliances. :-)

Lisa M Griffin said...

Awww this is so sweet. Even more creative and charming in the monochromatic palette. Lovely piece!
