Diary - Illustration Friday

Well here is a possible take on this week's Illustration Friday topic, DIARY. The first thing I thought of was the Adrian Mole books 'The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4 ' by Sue Townsend.
I didn't want to be so obvious as to take the literal version so I did a sketch of the real Adrian the mole and his not so secret diary! Haven't had much time this week so as yet not colour has been played with to adorn him and his furry and feathered friends. Although sometimes I think it's good to see images in their early stages..... just to see how they are transformed into their final states...... am I waffling?!..... er probably...... anyway.... below is another take on the DIARY theme. A young man seems intent on spilling his thoughts out to his diary.... I guess he looks a little like the young Harry Potter so maybe this could be Tom Riddles Diary from the Chamber of Secrets book? (although Harry's room looks a little too normal to be Hogworts.... mmm could maybe change the background a little?......
Anyway folks have to scoot.
Have a fantastic week! Jen
