Alive Beehive

I imagine, like me, a few other artists will most likey draw bees for this week's Illustration Friday word, "swarm". This swarm of bees might have the wrong beehive. But I think it makes this hairdo come alive!

UPDATE: "Alive Beehive" is now available at my online shop for digital download to use on your personal scrapbooking projects. Click HERE to visit The Digi Street or click on the images below to take you directly to that product!


  1. jahaha great idea like it a lot :D

  2. This is so cute! Great idea! I love the details, like the hair shadows. And vectorizing job too!

  3. Thank you all SO much. I really appreciate it.

  4. Thanks for your comment! This is a very clever solution...love that beehive hair...and aren't those called bee-stung lips?

  5. Love the bee hive hair-do! Very clever!!
    I really like how she's looking up at what's going on in her 'do, as well!
    Very cute!!

  6. Thanks for including the sketches (and your comments). Yes, it certainly does bring the hairdo to life. I checked out your animation and it is impressive. I am trying to teach myself some techniques to animate some characters I created. I may need to ask you a few questions some time if this is okay. Great illo!

  7. I love this! Great expression and how the hair becomes the hive. Wonderfully creative :)

  8. @Sarah - Yes, I do believe they are called "bee sting lips". How funny. Wish I had thought of that.

    @Jo - Thank so much for the sweet comment.

    @Cindy - Thanks for checking out my animations. I appreciate that. I'd be happy to help you learn to bring your characters to life.

    @Danaye - Thank you SO much!
