Hooray for Friday

I have been drawing houses all week, this one would scare off the big bad wolf for sure! I have a mile-long list of what I need to work on, it is just a matter of finding the time... Can't wait to start painting gifts for little Lucas and baby Kate, hope to start on them this weekend! Have a nice weekend, everyone!

Sunday Evening Post

I determined this week that sketching a nearly-thirteen-year-old sleeping spaniel isn't that difficult. The three-year-old child is rarely in one place long enough to speak to, yet alone get on paper. The cat fell somewhere in between, and these were my favorite sketches.

Storyteller Idol

Storyteller Idol is going to be a feature at the Minnesota SCBWI fall conference in October 2008.
I was asked to come up with something for the MNSCBWI website, and I like how it turned out (despite the fact that I did not have a single wiener dog or rabbit to model for me!). Also, I received my first official rejection letter today.... special thanks to Christina for her encouragement! Onward and upward, and back to the drawing board....

Happy Monday!

Working on a little something new.... I'll paint tomorrow. I attended another CBIG meeting on Saturday- what a great bunch of people! I feel lucky to be part of the group. Not much else new to report, except that I can't believe that it was snowing again today. Oh, here's a big cheer for my friend, Jen, and her new minivan!!! It is way cool to be a mom!

These are some squirrel drawings that I did as an audition of sorts for a project with the Cartoon Network. I found out that although they weren't chosen, I was encouraged to submit art again for future projects, so that was pretty cool. I like how this little guy turned out! Looking forward to another warm day today!

The Tooth Ferry

I am not exactly sure where this one came from... but it was fun to try to put a different spin on some of the old classics (wonder if it makes Mary Mary more contrary?). I sent some artwork off today to be a part of the CBIG website, so that is pretty exciting! Happy Daylight Savings Time, everyone!

Hooray for March, my favorite month! Got some more cat food last night, that's about it...
