Year 3 of the 52-Week Illustration Challenge, bonus round


Bonus Challenge: #AUSILLO

Sketch in black fineline Sharpie on watercolour paper, and coloured with watercolour pencils. (I did use an HB pencil first, before inking, which I haven't done in quite a while.) I decided to surround the girl with a few Australian inventions and icons. Based on two different photos of children, one from a Google search, another from my own collection.
