Illustration Friday: Stir

Thinking of Stir, I immediately thought of how excited my boys get when I say we're going to bake!  They love to stir the mixture. I used my dip pen for a looser, quicker style. I need to practise getting better control from my dip pen and try not to spill ink and make blotches. I love the effect of it, more spontaneous than other pens I use.


  1. this is sweet - i like the expressions of your characters - my kids like to help too!
    ps - i love your blog header

  2. Congrats on your new blog! I love using a dip pen too :) Your drawing is delightful!

  3. wonderful illustration.
    Cozy and inviting:)
    you made me remember my childhood.
    I loved to do anything baking-related. I still do, but licking pans was always my favourite sport :)

  4. So sweet. My kids love it when I bake and they get to help.

  5. Great illustration! It feels so warm and sweet. Your line work is so expressive. And, I also love your header!
