Illustration Friday - "Flying" #3


Another image created for IF*

This time P L Travers formidable nanny Mary Poppins, flying through the sky on the East Wind.

I read the books as a kid and loved them - much better and madder and somehow darker than the Disney adaptation. Check them out. And check out the lady who wrote them - an amazing lady who lead an incredible life.

The image was created using an edding 1800 profipen 0.3 and brush and ink, coloured up and composited in PS.

Click on her dress to see her in all her glory!
