Slither

Hi! This weeks IF topic was a challenge for me, but I made myself do it. I thought the word was a bit too confining and just plain, well... icky. I thought it would be fun to show a couple of kids excited about a snake, not afraid. Just to give it a little twist.

I updated my website recently, so click over there on the right. That graphic that links to my website, and check it out if you can.

Thanks for stopping by here and I love hearing from you, so feel free to leave a comment!

Great pic. Looks like you have a Mary Blair influence in your work, which is super hard to pull off, but you do a superb job here.

I can't believe you made a snake cute! You do know they bite and stuff, right?

Your new websites look great. Way to tie them all together.

This is beautiful Joy! I especially love the expression and pose of the little girl! It's just so right you know, the boys looking at those hings like snakes and the girls kind of irritated.

Had a look on your website the other day but didn't have a chance to tell you that it turned out great! I don't mind the landing page, even though everyone always suggests not to have one. The only thing I found a little disappointing was the fact you had no prints or postcards of you illustrations of your blog up on your etsy store. I would love to have a postcard collection of them!!!

Sweet slithery snake and kids!

Amanda said...

Adorable as always! I love snakes myself, so I'm a little biased. I also love the retro-ish color palette - it looks like an illustration from a 50s/60s era children's book.

Nice, This looks just how a kid would view it. Unless of course a parent was near by.

Sean Ingvard Ashby said...

Awww! So SWEET! Love the little girl in the back. Her pose and face truly convey excitement. Fantastic! That is a very friendly and harmless snake. Right?
