Here is my entry for the Popovy Sisters contest. You know that I have a weak spot for art dolls. Last year I discovered these Russian artists, whose production is very interesting and captivating. This year they launched an illustration contest I thought to give it a try. 

This has been inspired from their latest line, called Royals, which is based on the game of chess. Here is victorious white queen, regal and ferocious, beautiful and deadly. You can also look at it as the price of power or the horrors of war...I know, it's unusually gruesome for me, but every once in a while it's fun to change tone.

Back to my regular children works, now.

Another Ritratto di Bambino

Little Giac is now almost 10 month old. Time to make a new portrait to add to Bella's room. Drawing in ready...I am leasurely working on the inks.


It's strange to think that after this I will make just one more portrait, for little baby L., and then the series will be completed.
There will be other kids-themed drawings though...Bella now has her own requests (she wants a drawing of baby Pluto) and I have to start thinking about decorating the new nursery!
