Illustration Friday : Flavor

Meet Clementine. Please note her stylishly coiffed hair
and pink sash. Clementine is not vanilla. As the three
cherries appeared on her screen, the only thought
she had was holding her glass full of apple martini straight.

Wishing you all the luck of Clementine for the New Year!

Cheers!























Additional Notes
1: Clementine was painted in watercolor on
calling card size 'carta a mano di amalfi' cotton rag paper,
2.75"x3.75". Each page is very special as it is handmade
in Amalfi, Italy at 'one of the oldest and most presitgious
papermaking centers in Europe.' Some more history.

2: I updated Clementine. Some more 'flavoring' was needed.
If you want to see the original for comparison, here you go!:

She's great! I love the idea of a gal named Clementine drinking an appletini in Vegas. She could have her own show!

Your characters are great!
You've made a fruit machine look cute - I think it's the flower. I like your mix media work on your blog too.
