Illustration Friday - "Voices" #2

© Kathleen Rietz
Sometimes it's hard to get the voices out of your head when you find yourself engrossed in a scary story!

During the 21 Day Challenge I participated in with other blogger artists last March, I created a page of sketches based on Millie and her loyal little Chihuahua, Bobo. I then created this illustration (available as a print in my shop). And tonite I took some time to work on the second illustration from my page of sketches, and decided it fit the theme for Illustration Friday.

  35. Awwww, I think this may be my favorite yet. I love her little tiny mouth. She reminds me of myself as a wee girl, loving the horror stories and scaring myself silly, although I didn't have such an adorable pup to share it with, hee hee!

    Have a wonderful, warm cozy and cake filled holiday! See you in 2009!
