Breakfast of Champions

When I was a kid I was obsessed with drawing pigs and I have always been obsessed with pancakes. It looks like there is bacon on one of the plates, tho, so I don't think I thought this one all the way through when I drew it so many years ago... Best wishes to you for a happy new year filled with all of your favorite things!

Field Trip

I'm including this as a sketch because I drew it rather quickly for a recent storytelling & bookmaking field trip at The Mid-Continent Oceanographic Institute. This was my 20th time volunteering as a field trip illustrator! The kids come up with the silliest stories, it is the most fun!

This is a photo from the 18th of October, just over the half-way mark for the month of inktober.

Still having fun with inktober. Today's prompt was "deep" and so an alligator seemed about right.

Hand Lettering

I really enjoy hand lettering things and would like to do more of it. This is from a piece from The Frog Prince that I just finished painting last night, back when I was first transferring the sketch to my watercolor paper. I used my favorite font, Georgia, for the text in my illustration.

I think I prefer the fragrance of real berries over Sharpie berries.

Listening Friends

"I don't know. Maybe I need to go take a nap again."

(They take turns listening throughout the day.  They found it works best that way.)

Thank You, Tracing Paper

Here are an assortment of sketches from the music books I am working on currently. Tracing paper really saves the day when you need to move things around, flip things around, keep things symmetrical, and when you're old school like me. Happy Friday!

Happy Thursday!

Secondary Characters

I'm working on sketches for another book idea. This pooch is just one character. I always start with characters before anything. To me it's of course the funnest part!

Have a great weekend!

Drawing hands is not easy. I drew this, erased it, re-drew it, and so on for quite a long time before I got it the way I liked it. Bicycles are also very hard to draw. Luckily, this was not a picture of a hand pointing to a bicycle. That would have been horrible.

I sure love her enthusiasm.  I should tell her to start with the story that wants to be told first.

Happy Thursday!

sometimes you need to jot an idea down real fast so you don't forget it!

Sad Doxie

I was recently at a vet tech convention to get CE credits so I can keep up my certification. One of the lectures I attended was peppered with photos of cute dogs that were up on screen ever so briefly. This forlorn dachshund was the most gorgeous copper color.

Summery Thoughts

Long way to summer days, but one doesn't soon forget the fresh, breezy salty air in one's hair.
And those waves.  And the warm sunshine. Ahhh.
Happy Thursday!
