Illustration Friday 'Sweater' and Sunday Sketch

'May-belle, just LOVED to knit, she didn't really know why she loved it so much because she wasn't particularly good at it, but she enjoyed the challenge of wearing those baggy sweaters!!!' :0)

'May-belle' is a character that I sketched up a few weeks ago for Sunday sketches and I decided to give her a bit more of a personality, perhaps I should take her different places each Illustration Friday and see where it takes me. I like working on this character as it is completely different to the other things I've been working on lately so it's a nice change!

Cute character. Perhaps she'd like to knit ME a jumper! Love it when you go in a different direction and what a great idea to have her share Illustration Friday with you on a regular basis! xxx

Heather said...

How fun! I love big comfy sweaters! I love her ears, too!

How spooky, I was going to draw a mouse in a sweater for IF too.... great minds think alike! I haven't done mine yet. Perhaps I'll pick some other critter instead, or maybe a bird might like some knitwear? Love the perplexed look on mousie's face - "but I followed the pattern perfectly... how come it doesn't fit???"

This is so cute! And I love that you have a story connected to it.

May-belle looks so incredibly cozy in that striped sweater! Adore. I like your idea of doing something with her on each IF. I've been trying to do that with my new character, too, as it's teaching me to refine her bit by bit. :)

Happy SS!
