Illustration Friday ~ Wide



By the time Sissy was twenty-one, she had traveled the globe far and WIDE. However, she was still searching for the perfect martini.

As she travels I am sure she leaves an impression wherever she roams. Wonderful! I love the textures and design in this. Neat use of text as well. Don't you just love her eyes...they say so much about Sissy.

Sissy and I should share a peach martini- it's the **perfect** martini- but then again...so is a watermelon martini...but come to think of it, an appletini is pretty good too! so many martinis, so little time...

Nice choice. I traveled far and wide by 21. :) I think the longest I ever lived anywhere is 4 years....It is time to move again! LOL

Great work. I really like the little stories you give behind your images, this is truely what illustration is about, where both the pictures and words bring something.
