Just great...you have such a unique and recognizable style. Looks like she needs a Nimbus 2000.

Debbie Egizio said...

Great piece! Her hat seems to have the blues as well.

Now, here is this poor witch in a lonesome alley with a broken broom and I get all these smart remarks- your supposed to be crying your eyes out! This is deep! This is pathos! ( I really enjoyed laughing at the remarks!)Studio lolo... shame on you! "those broken broom bluuuuuues..." indeed!

"Reparo!"
(sorry, I couldn't resist;o)
Nice one!

Yep, it's deep. And sad, and Blue, and so well done!
I think it's going to be a blue week, however, unless she gets a new broom. Even with those cheery lanterns hung high, she seems too depressed to notice. Maybe if you draw a mouse for the cat to chase, it will chase away the blues too.

Poor witch, hope she manages to fix her broom or else she'll be stuck at home feeling blue! Great work JRY!

I guess she'll have to hitch a ride! Great drawing!

Mary said...

Aw that's a gorgous illustration, so sad, great use of tone and colour. I hope you can draw her again with a fixed broom, she looks as if she might be missing a party.
It really is a good illustration if i've looked into it that much and imagined the rest of the stroy for myself, that's what illustrations should allow you to do.
Keep up the amazing work.
