Illustration Thursday: Ruckus


Ruckus By Erin Nowal

In a way, “ruckus” is the perfect word for me to illustrate this week. One goal for my work lately is to make it less “precious.” I can stand to be looser, and more free with my drawing and painting. I’m intrigued by the idea of making my work more appealing to children, by being more just a bit more childlike in my process. Here is my interpretation of a ruckas. I managed to experiment with a character I am developing at the same time, which was fun. She is not based on me, or anyone I know for that matter…(wink, wink).
