Illustration Friday: Cocoon

Sweet Peas (again!)

Deja vu! I feel like I've seen this before! And I have. Originally, this piece was done for baby invitations back in 2007. However, it resurfaced recently when I was pulling together pieces for the Juried Art Portfolio Exhibit for the SCBWI conference. While I was touching up the image, I noticed the babies didn't have ears! Did I do this intentionally? I don't remember now, but it seemed like they each needed a pair.

In addition to the ears, I lengthened the sweet pea stem, added detail to the baby clothing, and made adjustments to facial features and shadows.

It's brand new again, and now, they can hear me when I say, "I love you."
