New Year, New Moon Illustration

Remember the alien sketches from a few months ago? They were for an assignment for the Jan/Feb issue of New Moon Magazine. The entire issue is available to read online, as a preview for interested subscribers. It's really a lovely magazine for girls, and I enjoyed not only creating the assignment but in reading through a lot of the back issues for research. I worked on this just after I completed Dirty Gertie - having just worked on a 'page a day' painting schedule I really had fun taking 3-4 days to leisurely paint this one. It's also the beginning of a slightly different style where *gasp* all my kids have eyeballs AND pupils.
