Illustration Friday - Immovable

I love going on a hike and seeing an enormous boulder jutting out of the ground, and wondering "How did this ever get here?" It looks so out of place and I try to imagine if it was a glacial melt, or an earthquake...what amazing act of nature moved this seemingly immovable rock to this spot? And what will move it along next?

It reminds you that nothing is as permanent as it seems.

(Scientists call these out-of-place rocks "Erratic Boulders.")


  1. Love the shapes and colours in this one. Lovely!

  2. I really love this! So simple and stylish! Great feel to it...really nice work :)

  3. Super cute. LI love that simple and stilish trees.

  4. Hello Vivian, Very beautiful your artwork stripped of everything that might distract from the main subject.
    I love them.
    Thanks for your comment!

  5. So cute and really bold colours and composition. Thinking about that stuff freaks me out, but its fascinating too!

  6. Great idea. I love your artistic style, too! So bright and cheerful. Love what you did with the IF promt, atmposhere, too.
    hope your little one did ok today in Kindergarten!

  8. Dear Vivian,
    I've noticed your profile mostly through illustration friday and your kind comments on my blog (Thanks for them).
    I'm a final year design student in Bangalore, India and i wanted to request your help on my final year project.
    If you have the time could you please help me a little? I'm looking for people to make an illustration for me on 'language and identity'. It can be your own interpretation of the subject and it can be even a simple illustration depending on the time and enthusiasm you have for it.
    I would be very very grateful for your help and i will obviously give you due credit for your work in any place i use it.
    You can check out an example i made on
    It needn't be anything like this though. It is your own interpretation and style that i would need. It could even be an experience you have had resulting from conflict with language such as miscommunication.
    If you are unable to help but know of someone else who might be interested please do pass the word!
    I can be contacted at
    Thank you!
    (sorry to have to put this on a random post! Didn't know how else to contact you!)
