IF's Focused

Prof. Finklestein and his staff of excellent scientist were completely and utterly
blown away at Abby's focused and concentration. Before they knew anything
Abby was levitating above them and playing around with Einstein's theory!!
She was very focused.
Have a wonderful weekend.

All you had to do was post a picture of yourself, since you are one of the most focused artist, I've come to know. Girl, you rock! Have a wonderful weekend, it's gonna be a chilly one!

Mark Harmon said...

Your work is SUPER AWESOME! What medium do you use. Great characters, great textures. Really good stuff you have here. It's sort of a "Nostalgic Modernism."
I'm totally jealous of your work. Keep it up. Is that enough butt kissing? ;)

happychinchilla said...

Lovely illustration, the expressions are great.

Bella Sinclair said...

HAHAHAHAHA! Whizzzz Bangggg POP! You've got that THING that never STOPS! How do you DO that, capture so much fun and energy with your lines and colors! Dang, V! If I concentrate really hard and start to levitate, it's probably because I ate too much cabbage. Watch out now!

Always fantastic Vanessa!

Janine said...

Aww, thats wonderful and reminds me of one of my favourite songs called "Einstein on the beach" by the "counting crows":
........
And Albert's vision is blooming uncontrolled
All his wings are slowly sinking
The world begins to disappear
The worst things come from inside here
All the king's men reappear
For an eggman, on and off the wall
Who'll never be together again...

Have a great week
Hugs
Janine

Okay sister, talk about Focused, you are! These illustrations remind me of the books I grew up with as a child. There is something soothing about them.

Andrew Finnie said...

Wow, I thought I commented on this one! The dynamics of you work are very pleasing. Wonderful how you arrange the page elements into such a design.

Megan Coyle said...

Thank you for such an incredibly nice comment! I'm actually thinking about working on a children's book sometime soon - once my hectic schedule of exhibitions rolls by. Your work is definitely pretty inspirational - makes me want to get started on illustrating a narrative soon. And while looking over your work again, I'm a little curious about your tools - do you work digitally to make these fabulous images?
