Illustration Friday - Worn



I've been wanting to join 'Illustration Friday' for a while now, and finally did. The word for this week is 'worn' and this is my interpretation. It is a small mixed media drawing in my art journal.

The first idea that came to my mind for this weeks topic was a young woman worn out by life. It was only after I finished, that I noticed what the collage paper used on her dress said. Very appropriate :--D

Awesome! I have yet to participate in Illustration Friday yet. It's on my list but I always seem to find something else to do.

Yes, me too. I have yet to participate as well. Just too much on my plate I guess.

I love yours though, Pink. It is just right.

I've always had intentions of participating but never get around to it. This fits the word perfectly! She looks so sad...

The Illustration Friday site looks great. Such a great way of sharing art and idea's.
Your latest painting looks very goth/emo, would do well selling this type of art. I have 3 my children into these kind of fashion/art.
Well they are not children now, although? Sometimes? He, he, he!
Have a great day!
