IF: Poise

Deze week is de opdracht in IF: poise. Dit woord moest ik opzoeken in het woordenboek en betekent iets als "evenwicht", "balans" etc. Ik wilde deze keer echter een "quote" uitbeelden waarin dit woord voorkomt en lang leve Google, kun je die wel vinden.

This week's topic is poise and also this word I had to check in the dictionary. For some inspiration I googled the word and found a quote which I used for my illustration:

"Lone eagles, soaring in the clouds, fly with silent, peaceful poise,
while turkeys, in their earth-bound crowds, fill the atmosphere with noise."
 William Arthur Ward (American dedicated scholar, author, editor, pastor and teacher)

  1. Fun interpretation. Love the style of your illustrations

  2. Nice angle. Love your eagle. Great soft style.
    Why be a turkey when you can fly like an eagle? :)

  3. it's very sweet. i often think the turkey should be america's national bird, not the eagle.

  4. i love the quote, the illustration sure does suit it .... awesome!

  5. Great quote, Brigitte, and a perfectly illustrated. I like both your eagle and turkey, very nicely done. And I also like the composition, the wide, open white space, very elegant...

  6. Great drawing - I really like how your bird in flight came out, and the textures on the birds are terrific.

  7. lovely illustration for the poem. :)

  8. Ik heb jouw illustratie gemist vorige week. Geweldig gedaan met de arend en de kalkoen. Zoveel details en mooie kleuren. Echt geweldig. Ik hoop je vaker te zien op IF.

  9. he, the characters and the little poem:)))!!
    Happy Easter!!
