Illustration Friday: Talisman

Watercolor, colored pencils and pen on green paper.

If you've ever been to Turkey, you must have seen many of
these blue eyes!
These are called "nazar" and are protection against the evil
eye. My bamboo queen is using one of those to rest in peace!
You can read about Nazar
here in Wikipedia.
I also have one little eye (Nazar) pendant!
I bought that in Iran when I was a teenager.
In Iran we use some special glazed pottery bead as talisman.
You can see it in the photo
(The big blue bead, hanging from that wall art)
This wall art is a gift from my lovely sister :)
Thank you Azadeh! I love it!

Illustration Friday: Poise

Have you ever had a curious cat that would gaze at you
when you try to concentrate? When we were kids we had a cat
and he really liked to interrupt us whenever he felt that he
was being ignored!

I've done this illustration with pen and watercolor on paper.
The poise is from a pretty photo in Shutterstock.
