Illustration Friday - "Fierce"

©Kathleen Rietz
I thought I'd roll out an oldie but a goody. This was one of the very first illustrations I drew for Illustration Friday when the theme was "hide". But, you know, this little girl is mighty fierce. At least her monsters think so!

  12. I'll tell you an unfortunate secret... when there are a million comments on a post I usually don't comment because I think "well... they've said it already." But seriously Kate, this is so delightful. I love love love the humor, and your craft is always brilliant.

  19. She looks like the kind of girl that would make monsters run if she snapped her fingers! I've always loved this drawing! Hmmm, I wonder what it would look like in color (hint!) *wink*
