Illustration Friday: Talisman


The first thing that comes to mind when I think of talisman is religious iconography. Instead of just recreating existing iconography I decided to make it a bit more personal and do a self portrait of my self as a saint. I don't personally attend a church that worships saints or displays icons but I've always love the images and have gone to churches just to spend time looking at their icons. I gave myself a pink bunny. If I believed in luck or lucky objects it would be a pink bunny.

Christy - I am OBSESSED with your stamps! I just looked on MFT and there are a whole bunch of new ones I don't have! Why don't you just send me a set every time a new one is made! :) Here is what I am looking for next - some good hippo stamps. I LOVE that flying hippo picture! Again you have amazing skills! I am so blessed to be able to use them!
