Illustration Friday - SKULL

This week's illustration challenge word was SKULL. An odd choice for August....but then, where I live, the temperatures already feel like fall, so I guess this theme would be consistent with that! :) 
 I always like to try to do something a little different for these challenges, but there's not much room for interpretation with a word like SKULL. So instead, I drew 2 separate illustrations, & then decided to combine them to tell a short story of sorts....hope you like it!!

Illustration Friday - JOURNEY

Hank had a terrible sense of direction, so he relied heavily on the rest of the flock....

This week's Illustration Friday word is JOURNEY. I would guess nobody
knows more about journeys than migrating birds!
 This was another quick doodle done during our weekly Tuesday meeting at work! 
(I swear I really DO pay attention....)
As always, I appreciate your comments! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Illustration Friday - KING

King Leo enjoyed his "creature comforts...."

Was feeling a little silly this week.....obviously.....
When I saw this week's Illustration Friday challenge word was KING, this is what popped into my head. I really can't explain it beyond that..........  *grin!*

What do you think? 
Did he make you smile?

Illustration Friday - PEACE

Click to enlarge
 This week's Illustration Friday challenge word is PEACE.  I chose to go in what I think is a slightly unexpected direction on this one. It reminds me of when I was a kid, and my Mom would say my brother & I "fight like cats and dogs!"  Hoping you animal lovers appreciate it!

It's been a month since I've had time to post to my blog. But I have a good excuse! The July Doodle Day theme was my favorite subject: ANIMALS! And I took a much needed vacation to beautiful Vancouver British Columbia, and the surrounding area. Several people questioned my choice of vacation destinations, 
    but I think this 21-second video  ** CLICK HERE! **  that I took 
at the top of Whistler-Blackcomb  pretty much sums it up!

 Will be sharing some of the Doodle Day animals & more from my trip in my next post, so stay tuned, or better yet, join this site by clicking the blue box under the Facebook block on the right hand side of this page! As always, I appreciate any comments, and thank you for stopping by!!!
