Illustration Friday

This piece is for 'Illustration Friday' the brief was 'Intricate' so I thought of a spiders web.

All my pieces will have a childrens' theme to them, as instead of creating work that wont be seen again in a sketchbook or sold off at a market, I am going to sew all the pieces together and the end result will be a quilt cover for my little baby Ruby. The history of quilts always tell a story and mine will be my journey of reawakening.

At least this way I will see my artwork all the time and hopefully it will inspire me to create more and develop my skills.


  1. it's really cute! And I like what you are going to do with it, very sweet!

  2. Brilliant!!! You definitly have your own style, I love how his eyes look a little bit cross eyed, very quirky and a great take on 'Illustration Friday'!!! I love the whole idea of it becoming a quilt, Ruby is very lucky!!

    Look out for my 'Daily Artstop Challenge Wednesday', I'll have to wait til tonight to put it up as Rick has the scanner in the car.

    Well done Clarey, keep up the great work!!!

  3. What an original image! The Spider's face is expressing a wonderful playfulness. Well done!

  4. Heehee, this is great! Love the quilt cover idea too.
