A Pretty Cool Milestone!

Click to enlarge
My studio Facebook page just hit a pretty cool milestone this week - 900 likes!!! Wow!!! I work hard to keep things interesting over there, so it has been very gratifying (not to mention fun!!) to see more & more people stopping by to see my work, & enjoying what they see enough to click 'like'!!! It's funny. I just don't seem to be able to grow the readership here as easily, despite my efforts! But the friends I HAVE made through IF and this blog are truly invaluable to me, so you guys are stuck with me for awhile, anyway! *wink!*

Illustration Friday - WORN

This guy is worn out....which is pretty much how I feel, trying to get everything done in preparation for a road trip today of fair importance. (feel free to visit my FB page to learn about the model horse national championship in Harrisburg, PA I'm traveling to for the first time.) Combine that with staying up FAR too late, only to watch the Boston Bruins LOSE game 4 in the Stanley Cup Finals last night, and yeah, I could use my pillow about now!!! Have a great weekend, everyone!

Illustration Friday - CHILDREN

Click to enlarge....really, you need to see this one BIG!
Here is a serious BLAST FROM THE PAST! I completed this one for my senior portfolio review at Syracuse University.... 20 years ago!! *gulp!* (I considered lying about that, but you can see the year next to my signature!) When I saw this week's challenge word was CHILDREN, this piece instantly came to mind, & I knew nothing I could come up with now would be more appropriate! This is a scan of a color copy of the original piece, so the color is wonky, & it is slightly cut off on the left side. And of course, there are a great many things I could do better now. But I think the original charm holds true. Just a piece that I created in hopes of giving the viewer something really FUN to look at! Are you smiling?

Illustration Friday - SWEET

I managed to finish on time this week!!! Sweet!!! I actually did 3 different sketches for "SWEET" but this guy begged to go first. A print is available in my Society6 store. (link on the right) Not sure I'll get to the other 2, although I really like one of them, so you just may see him pop up in a later post! As always, I appreciate your comments!
