Rambunctious - Illustration Friday topic

Rambunctious! what a word! I definitely had to look up the meaning this week! Well I had weddings on my mind as i went to one last weekend, but it wasn't quite as rambunctious as this! It was at an aquarium, very nice venue. 
I have been pretty busy lately, but good busy, I have over 140 illustrations to get working on for school workbooks, so today i have cheerfully being working on fruits and vegies, next week I will move onto insects and so on. It feels like a dream to be getting this sort of work and I am so grateful. I bought myself some gouache today which I am enjoying using. It is nice having a break from the computer sometimes.

Balloon-Illusration Friday topic

This is the 1st time I have ever used an older illustration for Illustration Friday, but this fits the theme so why not? This was an original design done earlier this year for a baby clothes company I was doing freelance work for. Lovely people to work for but the industry is very different than what I had expected. Not doing this work anymore (out of my own choice) and for my own artistic integrity!
