Tales & Legends - Illustration Friday

The tale of cupid's elephants...a pair of love-struck elephants who pass their magic to unsuspecting humans on Valentine's Day! Are you ready to be tapped on the shoulder by their magical trunks?!

Web Page Updates!

I just realized I haven't updated my website in over a month!!! Gotta add new stuff! Keep checking :)

Digital Painter News...

I don't know how she does it, but she does it well and we all appreciate it! Dani Jones has a blog called Dani Draws that is just LOADED with all kinds of goodies for illustrators. Now she has created a new blog for digital painters and tech geeks (like myself) called Digital Painter News. There is so much to read, learn and do on her blog sites that I try to set aside a little time each day to absorb something new!

Dani, thank you soooo very much!

You Make My Day Award :)

I was SOOOO SURPRISED to receive the "You Make My Day" award from the wonderful artist Ursula Shaw. It really made my day to get it!

Here’s how the “You Make My Day” award works!
1. Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make me think and/or make my day. 2. Acknowledge the post of the award giver. 3. Display the "You Make my Day Award" logo with a link to the post that I wrote. (Optional) 4. Tell the award winners that they have won by commenting on their blogs with the news.
Here are just a few of the blogs that make my day...EVERY DAY... and so if they haven't already received it, I am passing this award on to them:

Sherry Rogers
Dani Jones

Thank you again, Ursula!

Monkeys! draft sketches :)

Image
Today it's monkeys...for some reason I'm drawing monkeys! Actually, it's for a project but it took me 3 days to come up with a monkey I liked. Now I can't stop! More to come!

Plain 'Ol Fun!

Busy with Little Things...

Image
I've been working...here are a few snippets of different projects. I'm also working on new portfolio illustrations - finally!

It Snowed :)

Image
Danville got about an inch of snow overnight...we might get TWO inches by the end of the day! Coming from Northern Virginia, where we usually got decent snowfalls, living in South-Central Virginia can be disappointing if you want to see some snow! This is Lexi's first snow...she loved it!

Back to work after the Holidays :)

My daughter spent the last part of her Christmas vacation with us last week. We had a really good time :) She's a junior at James Madison University getting her BFA in Graphic Design and Printmaking. When she was a freshman we attended a craft show and she saw a purse made from men's ties. The $ tag was too high at the time so I decided to make her one...and a tradition was born! This past weekend I made her 3rd tie purse using ties from my husband's late Uncle Jack. The strap for the purse was made from the tie she bought her brother (he didn't really like it) but it makes an awesome strap! I'm going to make one for myself this week after the deadlines are over. I like to match like patterns or colors - like paisleys or stripes - but Kellie likes the mix.

She also wanted a picture with Lexi for her facebook page. As you can see, she posterized it in Photoshop :)

Can't wait to finish my assignments and sew again!
