Illustration Friday-"Homage"


















This is my first time to participate in Illustration Friday, a weekly art challenge for artists of all shapes and sizes.

The topic for this week was "Homage". My illustration is meant to pay homage to the great Kevin Henkes character, Owen, who inspired me to write and illustrate picture books. The penguin is my own character, Patrick, and he doffs his plunger to the esteemed Owen.

I love the watercolor on this, I have a real affection for that muted and lightly textured look. I'll check back on Fridays. I'd do the Friday thing myself, if I wasn't in the middle of a personal challenge to post a new piece every single day for the year.

Cute picture. You know you've done well when every penguin you pass tips his plunger to you.

Your penguin is so sweet!

Heather said...

Beautiful and perfect. Your little penguin is so adorable!

We LOVE Owen around here (my daughter identifies with him still.) A much better homage than mine ended up being--I wanted to do a homage to one of my favorite illustrators but I didn't have time and didn't waant to forget this week.
