Forest Animals

I'm all about bringing nature in.  Especially this time of year when I can see it all slowly disappearing.  I'm also into symmetry but, more of an imperfect kind.  There's so much pressure in the "perfect" & the end result is well what you expect= perfect.  Which if you ask me can be dry & leave little space for the imagination.

Little Red

She was joyously making her way along the wooded trail.
Little did so know trouble wasn't far behind.

Big tops, big dreams


I've been watching American Experience, The Circus on PBS.
It's a four hour history of the circus.
I've found it spectacular, exploitive, sad, ambitious, limiting & limitless.
(all sorts of contradictions)
My dad took use to take us to the circus in the fall so for me it conjures up 
good memories of a big afternoon out.  It's nice learn more about the long,
rich, history of the greatest show on Earth.

Wish...


The morning glories are fading & the dandelions are gone.
A morning chill has set in.

And... the rain continued.

We've had days & days of rain.
I'm imaging the outside while I stay cozy and dry inside.
The colors slowly change.

Character Art





Here are some sweet characters I made for a South Korean publisher.
The book is about the different activities we do everyday.

Halloween Card



This is a silly, sweet corn maze card I made for Papyrus.  A fun interactive way for toddlers to travel the maze & make some discoveries along the way.  Who knows, maybe they'll even get a few costume ideas.
