Asleep }{ Illustration Friday

This week's Illustration Friday prompt was "asleep."

Since this week has often found me contemplating my many moves and dislocations, I also wanted to include places where I've spent some time in this week's drawings. I would love to play a guessing game with you all - where did I find inspiration for the three drawings below? The answers are at the end.

1) A landmark asleep
markers, watercolor, and gesso

2) A volcano asleep

3) A city asleep
colored pencil

Did you guess all of them?

Drawing A: France (do I have to say what this is? So easy!)
Drawing B: Japan (Mt Fuji, harder)
Drawing C: San Francisco (hardest in my opinion - the hills and the colorful houses are supposed to represent that city)


  1. I love all of these! Especially number one! It's a really fun take on the Eiffel tower.

  2. This is cool! I only guessed the first one, but I love all the drawings, especially the watercolor. I've tried to watercolor SO many times and it ends up looking like a brown puddle. :)

  3. Bom Dia Querida!
    ´Tá na cara os 2 primeiros,a já terceiro nem sonhei!Mas adoro seus desenhos até de lápis de cor, acho o maximo.
    bjos Carinhosos.
    Semaninha Perfeitinha!

  4. I got two out of three. Wasn't sure about SFO. :)

    You should start an Etsy shop for your sketches! :)
