Line Art

I thought I would show you what I have been up to lately.  I have a friend that is having a wedding shower for someone. She wanted to have a theme of trains, everyone getting aboard to wish this couple well on their journey.  She wanted some fun line drawings to put up in the big center where the shower was to be so she asked me to make some line drawings, cartoon like.  I thought I would post a few. Noone that is going to the shower will see them here so... This will be in the hallway greeting people.
This is one that will cover a big banner in the hall. The couples initials.
This one will go above the serving table.
I offered to do more detail etc. She didn't want any. As you know the customer is always right. Ha.  I
have to make several more. One is 11'long. Several are 4'x8'. I have had to tape the paper to my dining room wall.  I have never done anything like this. It is fun.  Now you have to remember I am not a perfectionist. Don't any of you professional artists faint when you look at these.  It is all for fun.

I will be gone a few days visiting family. I hope you all have a great weekend.

These are fun. It reminded me of a sign I did for a friend, years ago, that worked in a wells fargo bank and needed a big drawing on brown paper to put on their wall for some promtion going on. I didnt know what I was doing but it came out pretty good. Served its purpose. Wow.. I havent thought of that in years. :) Do take some pix of them on the walls.
