Phoebe's Wish - IF

There was something in the air, a murky unsettling feeling... Ah Choo! Was it dust? Phoebe had no idea what was going on but it stunk. Everything had been shaken up, turned on its head and inside out - it was completely out of her control. All she could do was hang on tight so she held her breath, made a wish and waited for the dust to settle.
Phoebe's Wish - Phoebe was hand sketched in pencil, then scanned onto Mac, redrawn and coloured using Illustrator. The tree has been recycled from a previous Phoebe illo. The background is one of my painted canvases collaged into the illo using Photoshop. The swirl pattern was originally hand drawn, then scanned and manipulated in Photoshop. It often appears as a subtle background effect in Phoebe illos. I really like collaging different textures, media and techniques to create a digital illo that has a layered, textured feel. 
This Phoebe illo is dedicated to one of her biggest fans who's world was recently turned upside down. They say that when one door closes, another one opens, so hang in there... you'll find your feet again soon.
PS. Phoebe wishes you all the best for the big bright sunny future you deserve...  xo
