|Horse Costume 2013 j. c. phillipps|
As the season progresses, I have to start thinking about Open Studio Hartford in November. It's been a watercolor heavy year for me, but I know that my kids' room collages always sell well so I've been thinking for awhile about what I wanted to do this year.
The short answer is: Kids in Costume.
The long answer has to do with a variety of illustrators and picture books and this illo from Sophie Blackall's Missed Connections.
Inspired by the man in a bear costume and a young friend who loves horses, my first in this series is a boy in a horse costume. It also happened to fit in nicely with this week's theme for Illustration Friday, which is HYBRID.
