'Cos we are living in a material world...

Here is something a little bit different. This is a character, Mary-Kay I created a couple of years ago. She started out just as a marker illustration, but I thought that was just a little too boring. So instead I created this collage from pieces of material.

I would like to say that I cut each piece of material out myself - but I can't. I tried, but it was too hard and too boring. Instead, I cheated and scanned in the original sketch of Mary-Kay, and various pieces of material. I then imported them all into Photoshop and used the sketch as a template to 'cut' or 'punch' through the material. And there you have it - Mary-Kay, material girl.

Wow! you make fantastic illustrations. I like the portraits. I still have no clue how these digital images are created. I love your characters, Alice and Mary-Kay. I too have created an artistic character in pen and ink, Isabella, who lives in a moleskine notebook. She has big feet and loves shoes. Her tales are on my daily blog and she has written a post, sort of :-). Thank you for visiting my blog.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
