Illustration Friday: Shoe

Happy Friday! Here’s an oldie but goodie for #Colour_Collective lava red and Illustration Friday “Shoe.”

Illustration Friday: Tornado

Even when the skies are clear, the best days of summer often end with a maelstrom of hair woes.IF-tornado

Illustration Friday: Nostalgia


I’m double-dipping this week as this illustration is also for Penny Neville-Lee’s Colour Collective (Light Yellow Glaze). The color inspired the memory, as all I could think of was watered-down lemonade. My sister and I won a lemonade stand from a drawing contest sponsored by Pillsbury’s Funny Face drink mix (ok, I’m really showing my age here!). We did not get rained out, but a gust of wind pretty much decimated the storefront and put an end to our entrepreneurial efforts.

Here’s the Funny Face line up, if this triggers anyone else’s nostalgia. Our kitchen floor was always sticky with sugar!

Illustration Friday: Hat

Had a day of writer’s block but ended up with this little pup. I guess the little cloud is his thinking cap. Thinking-Hat

Illustration Friday: Mystery

I found “Evil Olive” on a list of palindromes and was inspired. She’s sure to have a mystery or two in her past . . . .


Illustration Friday: Unicorn



I was drawing a blank for “unicorn” until I thought about the disgruntled birthday party guest wondering, “Why does everybody else always get a sparkly unicorn?”

Illustration Friday: Whimsical

“Whimsical” reminded me of the pink poodle in Go Dog Go with the fancy hat. I started googling Kentucky Derby hats, and got a little carried away. . . .but these pups aren’t waiting for a horse race, they are waiting for the arrival of my great-niece, due any day now!IF-whimsical

Colour Collective—Cobalt Turquoise Light

For Penny Neville-Lee’s Colour Collective—This week is Cobalt Turquoise Light–the lovely color of the lid for Vicks VapoRub. I was a shameless Vicks addict as a kid; my older sister, who had to share a room with me, was not a fan. Wouldn’t this make a great scratch ’n sniff?
