Hi all I hope you are having a good week so far. I finally finished my website and hope you would take a peek at it. :)
Finally that is done and now I can try to move forward and get a postcard made! I am going to really try to get an agent! Anyone have any ideas on who might be interested in my work?
I guess it does not hurt to ask. :)
Anyway, thanks for checking in and looking at the blog post. If you just pop in do say I so I can see what you are up to. okay :)

Talent! It takes alot to do what they do with a smile night after night. My husband, our two girls and I went to see Le Cirque in New York at the Radio City Music Hall last summer. I was amazed at how quirky and lovely they all seemed to be. Also held my breath off and on with all the acrobatics they performed so perfectly. We all really enjoyed the show.
I never really felt that going to a circus was a good thing to take my kids to see. Due to possible animal cruelty and all the reports of it going on just sickens me in my stomach. So this was an amazing alternative. Let the people carry the show and do not put animals through any abuse to make a dollar.
Also seeing the movie Water for Elephants recently with Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson (who are beautiful in the movie by the way) really made me want to draw something positive and show interest without animals.
Above is a black and white sketch that at some point in the future plan to color in a bit. Thought I might use it as a promotional piece. Maybe. But I hope it does see a glimpse of all the talent I tried to show they have.

Had a long time with this. It seems I did not want to let it go and say I was done. Like a book you so wished you did not read thru so quickly. You are turning the last page and say"oh great!" now what.
So hopefully this will bring someone else a smile when they see it. I could watch this movie over and over. Each time I do catch something that I did not see before.
Well, I am still adding to my portfolio so I could get my website up. So slow going! At some point I will let you guys know when. :)
Have a great weekend everyone.

Here is the final. :)
Okay so it all started with this sketch below. Where is was my inspiration. Well my girls had off for winter break recently. After my husband beat the dreaded flu bug we went on a few mini trips since our vacation time was limited. But we managed to make the most of every day we could before it was time for them to return to school.
We went to The Museum of Discovery and Science. We all fell in love with the otters they had there. They were so playful and sweet.
It was a great place and we all had a great time exploring. Another favorite was the rock/mineral collection.
After that a few our next trip was to Miami Seaquarium. Luckily it was not a hot day and it turned out really nice. Even after experiencing the long line to get in.
Anyway, after all this exposure to fish and those playful otters. Who will eventually show up in a illustration in the future. I saw this word of the week as a sign. To do IF again since I have been a bit absent lately.
Thinking if I should make this into a postcard. Any thoughts?
Here is my sketch......

Well...when life is a bit hectic and you are feeling a bit down. I look forward to times like Halloween to lift my spirits. It is my favorite holiday and love that people could just be down to earth and have fun. I did not get a chance to post this and felt I worked really hard why not just do it. Post it! and hopefully it will make someone smile. I could only hope that when my girls grow up they will look back and remember Halloween as a fun time to remember and share their great memories with others.

Put together my own scene and took the two that are usually not the leaders. I have been and just finished reading Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan. It is a great book. Yes, I read it. I will admit it.
It is really worth it.
This illustration that I have done is of Frank (who is a demigod) changed his form into an eagle to help rescue Jason and Piper from the Giant.
I have put it up on IF because it had water which is the word for this week. It is pretty late and not sure
if anyone will see it but decided to do it anyway.
Have a great night and hope you like it. :)

Getting that chill? Halloween is almost here! and in that mood I have done a witch to celebrate it with me. hee hee hee. I just love Halloween. Oh, but not the completely scary kind. This illustration I think is about as dark as I go. Believe it or not it is my first time doing a witch and am very happy with the results. Happy trick or treating! Have a great time and enjoy the kids candy parents for one night!!! I will not tell! shhhhh :D

Yes! this has been done about a million times before by many many illustrators. But, I have never done it and thought I would try it out. I found it to be the happiest of stories out there. This is my version and I hope you like it.
I am currently trying to get some more work done to put up on my site. To make it new and fresh looking. I do think it needs it! So this will be a new addition. :D
If any one has any suggestions on something they would like to see me tackle let me know.
Have a great day! Thanks for checking in.... :)

Hi everyone- Been away on vacation for a while and trying to come back to myself. Working on my website and really trying to get it done so that I can show how much I have grown.
Here in this illustration I used inks and had fun with just taking the shapes and making it into something. Thought of posting it for freeze because the water did freeze and you could still see all the funny looking fish thru it. :)
Looking forward to seeing what others come up with. Looking for new projects! If anyone has any leads please let me know!!! :)
