Illustration Friday: Savour

Clarence didn't feel bad about helping himself to a little turkey. He knew how to savour his meals unlike the rest of the family.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


I have another realistic pen and ink drawing for you today. This little guy reminds me of my childhood. One particularly wet summer my brothers and I caught several spotted salamanders at my grandma's house. When she called us in for lunch we left the little critters in a bucket in her entry way. When we finished and looked back in the bucket all but one of the salamanders were missing. We looked high and low and found a few of them. Two or three of them never reappeared. I'm not sure my grandma ever found out we had inadvertently released salamanders into her house. She'd probably laugh about it now.

Mr. Bear

Mr. Bear is my son's favorite stuffed toy. He squeals happily every time he sees him. We love you Mr. Bear!

"Yes," thought Margret. "This is the act. This is the act that makes us famous."

They call me "Puffy"

I had a cavity filled last week Tuesday and my face has finally returned to it's original size. The dentist isn't sure why but after I had the cavity filled my face puffed up and became very painful. They first thought it was an abscess but they couldn't find one. Then they thought it was a hematoma but I didn't have the characteristic bruise. It took two dentists to decide that I either had a reaction to the anesthetic or I have a needle track infection. Either way I am once again a statistical outlier.

I did my first art sale this week. It went well and I learned a LOT. People really seemed to love my hand made cards and little paintings on canvas. This cute little cow is still available. I call her Francesca.

No Sleep

No sleep and no coffee makes Christy a, well... let's just say a not nice girl.
