This is my illustration for this week's IF topic, "Double". Originally I had a different idea, but then just had a picture of one of these frogs in my mind. I figured I'd put the little guy in an illustration and just make 2 of them to fit the topic. I really should be doing some work, but wanted to do something with this frog and get him out of my mind, plus I wanted to participate in Illustration Friday!
Thanks for any comments and have a great week!

This week on The Sketchables we are featuring Kelly's wonderful cause, the ripple blog! Each of us from the group is creating a card to be given when you donate to one of the three organizations that are working so hard to save the wildlife in the Gulf of Mexico. They are The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies, The Sea Turtle Conservancy and The International Bird Rescue Research Center. Well, this one is mine. It might not be posted up there yet, but keep an eye out. Tell some friends! Go check out some fabulous art on ripple and better yet, donate and own a piece yourself! Thanks for stopping by!

I just got my 2 copies of the July issue of Highlights in the mail on Friday. That's my illustration there on page 43, inside back cover! The Picture Puzzler! It was great working with the Art Director, Cindy Smith. She was really nice, professional and easy to work with. A great experience that I'd like to have many more times ;o)
I've always liked Highlights Magazine for all of the illustrators they work with. It's a fun and educational publication that I remember from when I was a kid. So doing this illustration was pretty cool and nostalgic as well. Right after I got the assignment I actually had a dentist appointment and of course had to look through ALL of the copies they had there in the office.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to post more soon! I did a Click magazine assignment recently, but can't post that until after the issue is published. I'll do that for sure in November!
