This week’s topic at Illustration Friday is “focused”, and it immediately made me think about my 7-month-old daughter Olivia, and how she sometimes examines an object with an intense gaze that tells me she’s thinking deeply about whatever she’s looking at. I know that at this age, everything is a new adventure, an exploration.
So, in order to set up a shot to photograph, I handed her something that I knew would interest her and stood ready with the video camera. Once I captured what I was looking for, I snagged a still image from the video and got to work on the drawing, which I then colored digitally in photoshop.
Special thanks to Oly for being so photogenic.
