Well, where do I begin. I have been so overwhelmed these past few weeks that I literally felt like I couldnt breathe. We are in the process of trying to find a new home and we have put our home on the market. We received two offers and they didnt make it pass attorney review. We found a home and had our bid declined when the second offer went south. In the midst of all of that I had the opportunity to work on a great illustration project that had me doing five caricatures of the Desperate Housewives characters. I'll give you a sneak preview of one of the characters but, I promise to post the details of this in a few weeks when it gets closer for the issue to be published.

Lynette Scavo played by Felicity Huffman -Desperate Housewives

Needless to say - I have missed Illustration Friday so very much so I decided to take some time out to breathe this week and check out what my fellow IF illustrators are up to. Let see I missed a contribution for Feet, Monster and this week Spring. So how do you blend all three of those words together. Easy! For all the gals who love a good bargain and who love to shoe shop this one is for you. I myself am not that big of a shopper in general but, it always cracks me up when you find a woman who means business when it comes to finding the right pair of pumps! Well You go girl!!!

Wilnara I am so excited for you and how far you have come. So am I correct you are going to be published?
Your combination of all three IF's in one is awesome.
I have been wondering about you lately and was thinking of emailing you. So sorry to hear about the house troubles. I know all will work out in the end.
Please keep in touch and looking forward to your project.

Ha-you combined this very well. I am not a big shopper as well-especially when it is crowded. Good luck with the house hunting.

You're back! Love the Desperate Housewives illustration but the IF one is just ingenious. The expression on the shop clerk's face is perfect!

Hi Wilnara, two parts here.

First of all, thanks for the comments over at my blog. Well, actually, the image I has displayed isn't my design. I forgot to mention that someone else did that one. I didn't put up any of mine yet because I don't know if I will get the job, which I did. The client didn't show me any sample while I was doing the job. In fact I only got that picture after my submission. Turned out that I did something similar to that one. Will post again when it's done.

Secondly, I like your caricature and illo. Great work. And hope you come back to IF soon. I know the kind of exhaustion and emotional drain about the house. I hate house hunting (I had some nasty landlords). Anyway, hope you find something ideal real soon.

Keep us updated.
Cheers!

Ps: thanks for your prayers.

Wow! I love your caricature! Lynette looks so cute in the bathtub, yeah she needs a break from her notorious kids! And you are really smart with your Feet,Monster,Spring 3-in-1 Illustration. I love it so much because I'm a shoe freak and I freak when i see illustrations with shoes :) Please do not forget to update us on the other desperate housewives ok? I'm looking forward already!

Wow...what a unique eye catching style you have. I like it. It looks like you have fun drawing.

Great idea combining all three themes! You did it well and with a flare that is all yours! Clever!

PS House buying/selling is the worst. Good luck and hopefully the rest will go smoothly.

Way to combine those three topics. Great illustration that incorporates all wonderfully. Worked in a large department store during college, selling women's and children's shoes. A tough job that taught me patience, dealing with the types you've drawn here.
I wish you the best on your real estate dealings. Very tough thing... buying/selling at the same time.
