Illustration Friday - "Signs"

Okay, you know I'm a science fiction writer, right? So "Signs" automatically made me think of crop circles (strangely, I've never seen the movie by the same name). Crop circles are rather close to my heart as one of my early published stories centered around them. Even if they're all hoaxes, they're cool to look at. And if they're not all hoaxes...

Anyway, this is based on a crop circle that appeared in Wisconsin. It's ACEO size, Prismacolors on Somerset Velvet Newsprint Grey.


  • Very cool, I wonder what it means?

  • My personal theory is that they are a form of graffiti by adolescent aliens! Pretty artistic guys, these aliens. Cool illo.

  • Great picture. You have some skills with those colored pencils. I like your pictures of Neptune and Uranus. The one of the grapes is spectacular, but my favorite is definately the picture of the Earth. You have a great blog and I enjoyed looking thru your archives, there are a ton of great pictures in there.

  • Hey Sherry great job with those crop circles. I love your work with the colored pencils, but I think I told you that already. Hey last week I was tagged so if you don't mind...TAG your it. You have to post 7 things about yourself and then tag 7 more people. Hope you don't mind. Oh and thanks for the nice comment on my blog.

  • Great illo.
    Last weekend when I was trying to come up with something for this week's topic, I came across the movie 'Signs' playing on TV. I almost took it as a 'sign'. But, I didn't.
    I do recall seeing a program that showed some young people armed with rope and boards making the crop circles.

  • I thought of alien signs like crop circles, too! (But I didn't do them.) I think that no matter how they are created (teenagers and rope!) they are BEAUTIFUL designs and take lots of time. I'm impressed with them. Great job depicting the "signs." :)
