Make ahhh........cow!

This is another thing I've been wanting to do on my blog for over a year now. The woog (in case there are any new readers out there, this is my 3 year old, daughter's nickname) has gotten to the age where she has a huge imagination and likes to help me "work." So, I'm declaring Wednesdays as "Woogie Wednesday" in the studio. Today she happened to not take a nap so I took advantage of the time. I hope to post one every Wednesday - cooperation permitting :)

Here's how it works:

I pick out several random objects:

I then ask her what we should make.
"Ahhhh, ummmm......a COW!" she says.
"OK. What color cow should it be?"
"wed" (aka "red")
And then we go from there with her choosing colors, painting and coloring and then I take what she's done and put it all together to where it's a cow.

Not bad for our first go at it. She giggled at the balloon :) Oh, and notice there's no blue button like in the first picture? Yeah, "we" lost it during our creative chaos. I wanted to sit down with her and look over the before and after to see if she could pick everything out but she's already onto Dora and snacks, so maybe later.

Save Your Fortune

Finally a chance to participate in Illustration Friday again! This is done in my found object style.

Since it's been almost 2 years since I made the jump to full time illustrator, I've been toying with the idea for months about starting a site/blog dedicated to the marketing of illustrators. I think I might just do it! More later....

More Stamps

I recently finished up another postage stamp issue for a client. Above are a couple of my favorites. I don't know why, but I love making crabs. Not sure why but I do.

Oh, and at some point I'd like to try what Jelene has with my cameras!

I'm 3!

Well, I decided not to go the route I posted earlier for the invitation. It just wasn't doing anything for me so I went with one of my first ideas. It's a princess party so I think it's appropriate!
