Sorry folks... all one of you. School is back in session and productivity is whirling (that is not to say I did not do anything this summer, I embroidered a very nice portrait of Our Lady which I hope to get photographed and show to you)
Anyway, school! Assignment! We were instructed to pick a story from our childhood and illustrate the Beginning, Middle and End. Enter Lucy Clifford's "New Mother" (which is just as creepy as anything for anybody who hasn't read it, go! Go read!)
So. These are colored pencil, soaked in coffee with some terra cotta acrylic accents. They took like... 10 hours a piece, each, EASILY and most of those hours were put in back-to-back. Not gonna be doing that again anytime soon.
