The above images are spots I did for a magazine put out by a local Children's Hospital here in town.

I'm still going full steam ahead with my big project and plan to wrap it up this weekend. It will feel so good to finish it.

Here's a short list of things I can't wait to do when I finish up with this big project:

Swaps - that's a biggie!! Thanks to everyone for being so patient!
Experiment with painting as another medium
Be more involved with my PBJ'ers
Make my Christmas Cards (got the idea, now I just need to roll with it)
Do some clay work for my portfolio
Redo my website
Send out promos and an email newsletter

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Chirp Assignment

This month you can see my illustrations in Chirp Magazine. I illustrated 2 spreads for a little story about a tractor named Tracy. I'm still waiting on getting a printed copy to see how it all turned out. Above is a snippet of one spread.

The List
I've really enjoyed reading people's "20 things" so I decided to take Janee up on her offer and post mine.

1. Holli is not my legal name. It's just a nickname (short for my middle name).

2. When I was in 3rd grade I cracked the bone in my left pinky and had a cast on my arm. I've worn my watch on my right arm ever since.

3. I don't like writing in blue ink.

4. I have to eat before I shop for clothes or I get really grumpy during the process.

5. I've lived in our house four and a half years and I'm on my 4th kitchen floor (this time it's staying!)

6. I have a "theater" in my house with a projector, screen and theater seats.

7. I will tackle any home improvement project except plumbing. The house rule is to call a plumber.

8. I don't like change but am getting better with it.

9. I still remember the line I had to say in my 2nd grade school program. "R is for right instead of might and many rights have we. The right to sing and work and play and even worship as we please."

10. When I was 3 years old President Reagan waved at me and I still remember it.

11. I let my daughter run around in her new footy pj's all day because I thought she looked cute in them.

12. I don't have a favorite color.

13. I'm a major introvert.

14. I love deviled eggs.

15. I will never move away from my family.

16. I've had gray hairs since I was 12 years old.

17. I've never had a drink or smoked.

18. Since my daughter was born, I now tear up or cry at anything touching or sad.

19. I'm decaffeinated (as my husband says). I haven't had caffeine in over 4 years.

20. I can still remember the first time I had a sugary cereal. It was Fruit Loops and I was around 6 years old.

I'm working on some head samples for a client. It's amazing how little touches can "age" a character.

Be sure to check out Jenny's contest. I could spend hours dressing little Zoe, and the prize would be just as fun!
