This is an illustration I did really quick for Monday Artday's topic "Flight". I thought of birds and wanted to add another element. Why not a flying pig? Thanks for any comments!

IF- Rescue

When I read the IF topic for this week, this little girl popped into my head. A scene of pure joy for both dog and child at finding one another... Thanks for stopping by and for any comments!

This is the front of my postcard I am sending to children's book and magazine publishers. I'm hoping to send it in early this week to the printers ( I'd appreciate any comments/tips/feedback if you have the time!

postcard back

Here is the back of my postcard. I'm wondering if I need to add my address? On seeing other's examples, I figured I'd leave off my address and just have contact information. Any thoughts on this? I appreciate any comments and sharing of experience :o) Thanks!

I had lots of fun with this one. I also included a willow tree in memory of all the willow trees that where cut down around our local lake, to extend the BART train tracks. So sad, but I guess that's "progress" for ya... Thanks for any comments and for stopping by!!

In the closet or under the bed? I started one with a monster under the bed but this image came more to the forefront of my mind. Little girl= brave, Mini Dachshund= not. I guess her monster isn't too scary looking though... Thanks for any comments!

This is my post for Illustration Friday's topic "perspective". It was late in the evening and I was in bed when I got this idea. I had to get out of bed and do a thumbnail sketch. The little pig with the bricks dreaming about everyone getting along. I'm trying a new technique, combining the 2 styles I've been working in. Let me know what you think. Comments and following always appreciated! Thanks!
