Illustration Friday #24 "Brigade"

A Brigade of Boys Bearing Gifts. My mind is on the Holidays, so when the word of the week came up brigade I thought "Toy Soldiers". These guys are similar to the close-pin solders I illustrated in my book "The Twelve Days Of Christmas" for the page, 12 drummers drumming.

Illustration Friday #23 "Round"

Round is my favorite shape. With Christmas just weeks away, my studio is hung with ornaments in various stages of completion. "Round" is an ornament for me this week.

Illustration Friday #22 "Vanity"

"Mirror mirror on the wall"...vanity is what gets all these fairytale queens and fairies in trouble. No good will come of it.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Illustration Friday #22 "Silence"

Fox sleeps silently while the snow falls.

Illustration Friday #21 "Stripes"

 I see them all day long... I see them in my sleep. "stripes!" This new kitty is stuck to me like glue. She sits on my shoulder while I work on the computer. Her gold eyes stare at me when I close mine at night... and when I open them in the morning.
