Sister's Housewarming Card

Happy Housewarming to my sister today, moving into the "real world" into her first apartment with roomates! Quick small card done with pen and ink just wanted to have something simple and cute. I love the ink because of its brightness and radiance-but too bad it does not reproduce too well. A famous illustrator once told me that Higgins was ok, so I will try those, these were Dr. Martins which are not a good idea for professional work, but fun for little projects like these. Happy House, Sis!

King Bath

 Quick Series I just came up with for new portfolio pieces. THIS is what I love to do! The action, animal characters, silly details....eep! I just must do MORE! My husband told me this looks like what pets do when their owner is not home, I like that idea for a book someday. It's probably been done, but still a fun idea I want to explore in the future. This is a lion cub posing a king in the bathroom, with mice subjects... but there was one rebel... duh duh duh.. and then an unexpected turn of events! Watch out, those creatures in the toilets sure can be surprising!

Library Mural Design Submission

This is a quick sketch that I created for submission for a mural design in a library children's room in the Palos Verdes area. This is my vision for it. It sounds like the mural would be two walls opposite of eachother. It incorporates the feel of the community and kids having fun reading the books that are growing from the trees.
