Fast Little Butterfly/Art From The Unknown


This is partly inspired by this weeks Illustration Friday topic of "fast", partly by having just reread Life of Pi, and partly for a 2010 (year of the tiger) desktop calendar I'm working on as a promotional piece. I think it will also work nicely as an art print.

Speaking of art prints, I had a really good time at Art From The Unknown, sold a few prints, and also exchanged prints with Karen Bishop who's super nice, has a cool accent, and does some really awesome watercolours. Exchanging artwork is great because I'm a bit of a collector, but have limited funds. I'm wondering if there should be some sort of collective site where pieces could be offered up for trade. I think that would be sweet - somebody do that and let me know.

Below is a revision to the calendar based on some feedback that I got from the folks over at the HOW forum, and Illustration Mundo Forum.
