Little Alphabet

Monday, March 9, 2009

Here is a very little alphabet I painted in between projects, in a slice of time before going to bed. The paintings were barely an inch wide before scanning them! I am very happy with how crabby monsieur chat turned out to be, especially in the letter "A". I also discovered the beautiful lacy voice of Montreal-based "Coeur De Pirate" (BĂ©atrice Martin) around the time I was painting these. Another note: I forgot all about daylight savings time! Spring ahead! I am now an hour behind :P

Eric, thanks and I have always loved Dulac's work, but I don't think I've ever scene his alphabet! ...Oh gosh, just found his "A" (for amazing?!)...must find the rest!

I found a nice new copy for pretty cheap on Amazon. It's a tiny book: only 26 pages...
