Cecilia the Pangolin Charmer by jenniferhom Cecilia the Pangolin Charmer by jenniferhom
i wanted to do something with hand-painted type so i thought a circus poster would be interesting...unfortunately type is difficult to paint at a small scale :P anyway, pangolins are fun!

you can view my process for this piece on my blog: here

Pangolins. If only there'd be a traveling show of pangolins...but they'd be short people in costume, of course.

Just saw this over on your website, actually! I really, -really- like this one. I know like is a tragically unsubstantial word, but, -shrug-. :P I really like the layered color effect in the center part, and the little floating pangolins. Cute artichoke creatures.

But I have to say that your hand-painted text came out really neat, though your blog indicates that it was rough. I envy your patience to do hand-painted things. *_*

Awww, don't let that digital push you around. If it protests, just kick it to the curb. >( But seriously, I always enjoy your traditional paintings.

And thank ye. :) I actually feel like I'm in a bit of a rut as of late, but people tell me it's normal to have highs'n lows with this art thing. @_@ Hrmmm.
