Illustration Friday - Superstition


I went with the superstition of a ladybug on you is a sign of good luck and my love of black cats. I know that whenever a ladybug lands on me or anything near me it makes me smile. I was insanely infatuated with ladybugs as a child and still think they are the sweetest bug.

This site was a great source to read up on the many random superstitions out there. I'm not too superstitious, but there are some I abide by, simply because I figure why taunt the voodoo!

Side tangent: Once I saw this topic I immediately thought of a recent episode of the office when Michael Scott says "I'm not super stitious, but I'm a little stitious". Ha! What a great show, those writers definitely deserve a raise! :)

Have a great week! :)

I like this post, but I think my favorite part is the grass underneath the cat. The texture and the shading are great. Looks like you tried something new and it REALLY worked out well. NICE JOB!

Curt - Yes, I did the grass in watercolour and scanned it in. I really like it too.
