How do you do this??? This is so perfect. I am in love with this illo! Shirley, it is seriously SO GOOD.
Ridiculously perfect as always!!!!Just how do you get soo.ooo many mousies looking so awesome.. love your talent , Cheers , Helen
I like how you treated the blur of activity. Very nice!
Gorgeous work Shirley! I love the way you used color to single out Monsieur Olivet from the blur of activity. And all of the little details are wonderful. Cest magnifique!
Sweet, sweet drawing for this week's post!!!
Very cool and sketchy...Monsieur Olivet strikes me as someone adventurous and refined...and this illo shows both sides!!I have a question though, rather seek your advice: how do you get illos to look so naturally done? How do you add that extra zing (perhaps it is the depthI'm talking about) to ALL your illos?!!!You're awesome!!
Wonderful. Sweet and expressive.
great blur technique, shirley!
Love it! Great use of colour
Hi Shirley! What a fun illo -- love the busy "blur" of the uncolored mice. Great job!
Your style is beautiful to see, like your dash, the colors, everything, you have a huge talent ... I'm following you with praise;) ... hehehe congratulations
I love the sketchiness of the background "goings-on" and then your use of just a spot of color to bring the main characters out!Very nice!
This is definitely nice, Shirley! I love it!! ^^* Love the sketch~
Wonderful, I like the way the color radiates out like a candle light.
Shirley, you just make my heart leap each time I view one of your illustration. I call you the EVOKER! You know how to create a mood in a scene and it's amazing and awesome all at the same time!! I really love Mr. Mouse. He is the character indeed. I really, really love these two pieces. They are stellar!!!
everything's a blur when we concentrate on something, especially if it is our favorite meal. :D lovely!
such a sweet illo, I love the fact that only he has color and the other mice do not
Wonderful pencil line, I love this scene, is simply perfect and the colours... and the idea, all! Well done!^_^
kawaiii..your work is so cute!! n_n
What a lovely scene! You can just feel the liveliness of the busy cafe. Well done!
this is so blurrily beautiful, it's just fantastic and so very sweet, the restaurant atmosphere is perfect.
I have checked all your blog's illustrations: YOU are GREAT!I have just adopted one of your bookmark from ETSY! I can't wait until I get it!I love the way you use watercolour, your brilliant ideas, and the stile of your sketches: you are my hero! ^-^ I hope to be able to improve and become as good as you are.Hugs,Eva
Fantastic illo! the ambiance is so beautiful that i could feel myself moving about among the busy mousies...The Monsieur definitely knows how to pamper himself by being fully engrossed in his favourite Soupe.
Fantastic illustration - I'd love to be chilling like Monsieur Olivet!
wow that is amazing! you've illustrated the busy scene perfectly!
That's what I call service! Nice contrast in color between Monsieur and the ones at work.
Lovely colors and perfect for the theme!
so very nice!!
Such a brilliant idea for this weeks prompt! I love how he's in colour, this illustrates the movement and hustle and bustle perfectly, you are so clever!!! I love your little character too! It's so nice to see him in these different scenarios. Lovely work Shirley!!! :0)
Shirley, You really captured the blur of activity around M. Olivet!
:Dthats ok Shirley! i know that you're busssssy too with Monsieur Olivet ;)is Monsieur Olivet real? i want to carry him in my pocket, hehe...
I just love your Monsieur Olivet character!
Beautiful Work, I really enjoy your style and the feel your images give off.Kudos!
excellent sketch (and I love the Soupe à l'oignon français too :))
Your work inspires Shirley!!!! It really does!
This many comments don't lie. Great illo once again.
your style is very vibrant and strong. stunning! monsieur olivet is delightful.
As usual, a wonderful piece that brings you in and tells a story. Your talent just oozes onto the page! Love it!
Gorgeous Shirley. A lovely narrative piece with so much detail - you're so good at those! Thank you for your kind comment on my piece too. It's nice to hear from you! Have a great weekend!
thank you shirley! your illustration is so sweet!kisses
Nice pencil lines. And the setting is very French indeed.
Thank you for the comment,don't know how I missed you in Illustration friday.Your watercolours are amazing as the concepts:)
Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a lovely comment :)...I absolutely love all your adorable illos!
Nice line work, love the colors...Thx for your nice words :)
Your character, Olivet has the right idea. The weather is a lot colder, so a hot bowl of soup sounds good :)
Seeing what you do with watercolor and pencil makes me want to try using them even though watercolor has spurned me so many times...
The blur you used really helps Monsieur Olivet stand out from the crowd. Looking forward to more of your illustrations :) Thanks for visiting my blog also!
Ah! So THIS is where Monsieur Olivet was headed. He looks absolutely content to be lost in his soup. Oh, Shirley, what a delightful character! So very adorable. And I do love the blur of the restaurant. You've captured the hustle and bustle very well.
Hi Shirley ! Was just passing by after you left a comment on my blog and who do I see but Monsieur Olivet who by coincidence has this morning arrived here in Malaysia!! Thank you so much for the super ATCs, I am thrilled with them and will be doing a post about these and the other lovely Art Exchange pieces that are droping in my mail box this week!! Oh, and in my excitement I almost forgot to say this is such a charming illustration for blur!
