Sketchbook Project page 12 the Mont in Color

The Mont Saint Michel, finished with watercolor. I am resonably satisfied with the result... I tend to "color" rather than "paint" per se, being more of a cartoonist and illustrator than painter, so I'd say I did pretty good.

Illustration Friday theme: Scary.
Don't know about you, but I think this might have been a somewhat scary place to live in during medieval times, what with the weather, the sea, the cold and humidity, and the constant potential for assault by various factions.
I'm very glad to visit the place today though, and would love to stay the night at least once, preferably during high tide, to get the full effect of being surrounded by the sea.

Sketchbook Project page 10 map

The transition map page going from St. Malo to the Mont Saint Michel.

This also fits this week's Illustration Friday theme: Fuel.
My parents had a 2 CV (2 Chevaux; i.e. 2 horses) for a while, and it was the most fun car to drive ever. It was also very fuel efficient. At the time it would take $5 to fill up the tank, and that seemed to last forever.

The 2 CV Citroen

The 2CV Citroen is like no other in the history of the car, and if you've ever had the chance to drive one, you'll remember it for the rest of your life.

This will become part of a collage map page for my Sketchbook Project 2012.

Sketchbook Project 2012 Mont Saint Michel

As this section of my Sketchbook Project is now all about the Mont Saint Michel, a complete view of this marvel is due before setting foot inside.

This is my pencil drawing, finished just moments ago.

Sketchbook Project 2012 page 11 Finished

Finished page 11 of the Sketchbook Project: that's the Mont Saint Michel in the backdrop, where we're headed next.
This is a somewhat less "serious" illustration compared to the previous two and more in the vain of fun comic book type, which is fine, as it does provide a variety of style and approaches for this little book.

I'll most likely be working on page 10 next, the map page, and choosing my next pictures as we get closer to the Mont Saint Michel.

Sketchbook Project 2012 page 11 Sketch

Skipping page 10 to work on page 11... and moving from St. Malo, Brittany to the Mont Saint Michel in Normandy, right next door.
Here's the page layout, to be finished with a fine marker.
