Mosquitoes are the worst! Luckily this girl prepared a remedy!
I've been working a lot with micron pen, so it felt good to loosen up with some pencils for this week's Illustration Friday. Unfortunately, I'm not so good at photographing pencil, so I included a few close up photos. I think I definitely had more fun drawing this one than you'll have looking at it... especially the garlic! The girl looks like she's having some sort of mosquito seance... definitely weird!
Garlic really is a great home-remedy if you have a mosquito problem. My dad makes a garlic spray for his entire lawn... my mom says it makes their house smell like caesar dressing, but it works! If you live in the eastern United States be prepared for a super buggy summer; we have fewer bats to eat them.
