What I’ve been working on. . . .

I’ve been very busy putting together the final art for Set 2 for Germaine Choe’s Language Together series. Here’s a sneak peek from one of the books–Rosie the diva feline is one of my favorite characters to draw—she puts a whole new spin on “cat in a hat”  The greytone conveniently works with this week’s #Colour_Collective “ash”

Happy Friday!

Illustration Friday: Yarn

For those who hate an itchy sweater–a character study I drew a while ago–a perfect fit for this week’s Illustration Friday! (click to enlarge).



Illustration Friday: Trouble / Inktober Oct 20

Hard to resist a scraggly witch with a scratchy wet cat this time of year! Loving Inktober–sketching in ink forces me to loosen up (which is fun!).  Still loving this Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen.


Inktober Oct 8

A surly cat to follow up yesterday’s sweet one–
part 2 to the Mr. Bubble sketch from Oct. 6.




Illustration Friday: Silence

Double-dipping today–my Inktober of the day is also my Illustration Friday post. More messing around with my Pitt brush pen–I just ordered a few Tombow Fudenosuke brush pens from JetPens but they are still on a delivery truck somewhere. If you have found a great brush pen, please let me know!inktober-10-7

Inktober Oct 6

Quick sketch and shameless product placement (but who doesn’t love Mr. Bubble?).inktober-10-6


Illustration Friday: Robot

IF-Robot“Robodog” had 8,850,000 results on Google; “Robocat” had 9,990,000. Why would anyone want a robot with a superiority complex??? So here’s one more for canine lovers. . . .

Illustration Friday: Edge


Better late than never. If you have a cat (or ever had one), you know how much they love to be on the edge of just about anything.

A very funny little video about cats vs. dogs (PG13 complements of a brief but impolite hand gesture): http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/24/cat-friend-vs-dog-friend-video_n_2185287.html

Illustration Friday: Identical

My cousin’s other cousins had a very big family with eleven kids. I don’t remember many specifics, but I do remember they had an enormous house filled with lots of redheads with freckles. And, like most big Catholic families back in those days, one kid became a priest and one became a nun.
