You have a great style! I really like the different facial expressions you capture in your drawings. I like the line texture on this... looks like Photoshop "posterize edges"; is that even close?? Nice shading and coloring. :)

Happy weekend, Vanessa!

ArtSparker said...

Very nice, close enough to the advice I recall in teen fashion magazines where they desperately tried to come up with something new every week. Also seems related to the high hairstyles of the French revolution...another time when thee was a lot of chaos going around.

PotatoMamma said...

Ohhh Vanessa, this is so beautiful - and sweet and funny - and gave me such a big smile, like your art and words always very much do.

Thank you so much too for your beautiful words of comfort - they soothed and rocked me - and I send winter hugs across the seas to you in a flying balloon...

I'm so sorry too for the loss of your dear friend - and send my love and warmest thoughts and wishes and a little song about autumn and winter and friendships and the wonder of life.

Take very good and big care of yourself - with love and dancing feathers, linda xx

Anthony VanArsdale said...

You have such wonderful work, Vanessa... and this piece is particularly funny LOL

Great illustrations!!!

Peter Breese said...

My goodness, I should set that up for my daughters hair! She would love that... for probably 5 minutes and then her 2 year old instincts would take over!

I am impressed that you posted an IF on the day of the IF! Bravo. I just posted... guess I'm going to continue to be days behind the mighty Ooh La La production machine :). Wonderful stuff as always my friend.

Amy C said...

utterly adorable - my hair could do with some help like this today!

Lisa M Griffin said...

Again, such a priceless expression... and what a thoughtful sister. =)
