Clip Art – reading outside

clip art reading outside

Who doesn’t love reading outside? Especially with the huge storm coming our way today that will threaten to keep us indoors? Actually reading inside by a roaring fire sounds pretty good too.

This image is recycled from another project. The original is much larger and has another girl in it as well. I cropped the image of the girl reading  to use on a poster to promote Free Reading Fridays. This is a slightly modified version where I worked out all the stuff I didn’t like in the first one. Of course, this only made some other rough spots evident, but most of the time I’m the only one that notices that.

I’m also trying to be more deliberate in my color choices now. The first thing I’m doing is working with a limited color palate – in this case, red and green. Everything here is a variation of those two colors. I’m still not pleased with how the greens work together, so I still have some work to do.

    Nice cartoon. Very cute, but very simple but original. (So tired of stick people with round heads and rosy perfectly round cheeks.

    Oh and if you let me use it I will, of course give you a credit and prominent link to your work.
