just thought i'd share these 2 pieces that i made as christmas gifts for some very important ladies in my life. i sure hope they're not tired of putting up my art on their walls. =) they both love to run and they both love Georgetown Cupcakes (but who doesn't?!) so i had some good themes to choose from. drew these on 11x17 smooth bristol with my copic drawing pens and copic markers. threw some brown ink wash on one of them to see how that would turn out. and i really wanted to make em "widescreen" but i wanted to make sure they could easily get frames for em. so i used black gouache to paint solid black bars on the top and the bottom.
