Some women are so clingy!!
Another quick one this week for Illustration Friday! This week's word was TWISTED, and while I had LOTS of ideas, and several that I sketched out, this was the only one I managed to finish. *Sigh!*
Just been an unbelievably hectic week, with a deadline looming on a project I've been working night and day on before & after my day job, but I DID want to share some photos from the book launch party held on Monday for the most recent book I illustrated, Sunny the Sneaker. A big crowd showed up at the South Shore Pottery Shop in snowy Abington, MA to kick off school vacation week. The author read aloud to the kids and signed books. Ceramic plates with the likeness of "Sunny" were available to paint for those interested, and I taught some young artists how to draw the quirky little footwear. I also took open drawing requests from the kids (LOTS of open drawing requests!) and signed countless copies of the book! I had a line for over 2 and a half HOURS, but the kids were so fun & appreciative, it didn't seem like it! Overall it was a fantastic event, and I was happy to get to be a part of it!

(who has been supporting my art for more years than I can count!!) It was great to spend the day with them!
OK. Enough with the mushy stuff! I've got that deadline still looming, so it's back to drawing lions, lions, and MORE LIONS!!! Stay tuned to see what that is all about!!! As always, I appreciate you stopping by & love reading any comments you might be inclined to make!!
