I recently re-started a personal project of mine -- a daily story/illustration blog. Admittedly, so far I've managed about three stories and pictures a week, but I'm pretty happy with my production so far. You can read the stories and see the illustrations in their natural habitat here: http://highflyingpoultry.wordpress.com
Don't worry, I'm still working on my Boston piece. These are fun pieces to work on and take only 2-4 hours apiece, instead of 20-30.
Have to read the stories for context, of course.
So far most of the illustrations have been in ink and watercolor, because that's easiest for me, but I've also done a couple oils.
This one was GREAT fun.
Still learning how to paint skin with oils. Looking forward to getting a better photograph of this one.
