Illustration Friday - WOOL


click to enlarge
 When I saw the challenge word was 'wool' I immediately thought 'sheep', as I'm sure many people did. Not exactly original, and anyone who has visited this blog before knows I strive for originality! But the sheep I thought of are the ones that appear in the children's book I illustrated, 'The Quilt Book' . I had a lot of fun with these particular sheep & selected some of my favorite scenes to share with you. I admit, I feel a little guilty, not drawing something new for this week's prompt, but the truth is, I've got a paying project I really *should* be working on, & ultimately, any new sheep would kind of look like these guys anyway! So, in an effort to be professional, stay on the straight & narrow, meet my deadlines, & not get distracted by visions of fabulous new sheep....... "old" sheep, and therefore, "old wool" it is!!! As always, I appreciate you stopping by! And if, by chance, anyone is interested, the book is still available to order! Just click on the link! :)

  1. I love these illustrations! I think it's great that you had work available to use for IF this week. I wish it would happen to me! I think there's only been once where I could use something I had done for another purpose. These illos are so cute; I'm glad you posted them!

  7. Glad somebody else didn't post new 'Wool' art. As you know, I failed at that.

    This book looks like a solid read, but I like the art the most. Very cool to see your artwork in print. Bravo.
    Does your powerful Vette plow through the powdery snow? hah, sounds like a tongue twister. Those cars are fast.

  8. Can I change my comment font? I prefer something a little more masculine, and san-serif. :)
