Postcard Art - Back To School!

Here is my "Back To School" postcard art! On the way home from school, two friends try to catch swirling, gusty wind-blown leaves! It definitely makes me feel the "fall"-y, and almost makes me want to hop aboard a yellow school bus, too!


Here is the sketch insiration for the final art. I enjoyed doing the back, as well. (Look at the cute little backpacks and tails on these guys!) Hope you enjoy!

These are so cute! And you are so talented with your illustration. I'm a big fan of CB's and have shelves of them just because I love them.
