Chair - Illustration Friday


Better late than never (it has been a rough week around here!)!

When my daughter was young, we used to go to garage sales and resale shops for furniture, toys and clothing. I remember this small, child's chair made with different bright-colored fabrics and patterns. We didn't purchase the chair that day...but, it left a memorable impression with me. This was my inspiration for this week's Illustration Friday, "Chair."

Adorable! Your graphic style is beautifully simple - this makes me think of the art in "Blue's Clues" with the cut-out effect. I also love the anecdotal memory about garage saleing - my boys love going to garage sales :)

Very cool style here. This little guy reminds me of a baby Charlie Brown...perhaps it's the curl?

This is oh so cute! Love the style you used here with the different "fabrics". And your sweet baby is perfect!What a neat approach to the topic, and a nice memory to share.

And many thanks for your support and prayers for me - it's greatly appreciated!

aww... that's adorable. I remember those days when my kids were little and having to buy everything second hand. We got some good stuff though!
Thanks for visiting my site.

Wonnerful li'l cherub... Yes, I like not only the curl, but the blush on the cheeks, as well. I remember the days of kid-sized desks and Li'l Tykes breakfast tables... sticky days, if I remember correctly. Nice art.

I have that too, sometimes, that I see a piece of furniture or clothes that I like yet never buy - but in the end I am playing with it in my head. This came out as a very sweet and visibly happy memory of that day!
