Illustration Friday - SPACE, TWISTED2 & A Really Bad Picture!

I finally feel like an Illustration Friday veteran! Because when I saw this week's challenge word was SPACE, I immediately said to myself, "Hey! We already did space!!" Granted, it WAS 2 years ago, but aren't there enough words in the dictionary to not have duplicates after only 2 years? OK. So maybe I'm just being persnickety. (read: cranky) I mean, there IS more than one meaning to the word SPACE, afterall. But the second I saw it, my mind instantly went to this guy, who was a favorite of mine during my first year at Ill Friday. I LOVE this little ET hot-rodder! So I'm posting him again, like it or not. :)

BUT, just so you don't think I'm a total slacker, I did another TWISTED from last week's prompt. I think I like TWISTED2 better. Pretty much anyone who has ever had a dog tied up in their yard has experienced something like this, right?

And finally, there's THIS....not exactly a flattering picture (understatement!!), but I felt obligated to buy a copy anyway. (But just one!) I don't even think it's worthy of bumping one of my friends' kids drawings off my fridge!!! But hey, I'm famous.........sort of...........  :)  To see more (read: BETTER) photos from the book launch party for the most recent children's book I illustrated, Sunny the Sneaker, please check out last week's post. 

As always I appreciate you stopping by, as well as any comments you might feel incline to leave! And DO consider subscribing to this blog and/or visiting my super-cool Facebook page! All the links are in the right column! :)


  1. Yeah, he's a good one, even if it is 2 years old. His spaceship looks like it's driven by balloon power. I wonder, does it make that sound that balloons make when you let them go?

  2. Lovely my friend! love your customized book for kids!

  3. These are fabulous and congrats on finding time to participate in Illustration Friday for so long! I tend to get sidetracked. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog as well.

  4. I'm feeling like a veteran too. I think there might be something wrong with the world if we can only look at a piece of art once. If I liked it the first time, odds are I'll like it again. Cute puppy too. Congrats on your fame!

  5. Hehehe! I feel like these two drawings should be linked. LIke the little alien is making a fast getaway after pranking the pooch. Love his expression!

    And wooohooooo! You made the papers! That is so exciting! Yay!

  6. I've always loved hooking up with IF. But I don't get any traffic from it. I'm starting to lose interest. I'll probably still link up now and then though. But you've been doing a great job with the themes. Even the repeats!

  7. I'm Loving Your Little Space Man/Woman! :0)
    Great Illustration!
