It's been a rough day,
so it's time for a few smiles, kay?
I did these computer illustrations a while ago.
Proper translation: Happy Birthday, you old frog.
My translation: Happy Birthday, Twinkle Toes.
(it just sounds funnier to me...)
poor little lonely cow...
This was a small painting on canvas,
but Mr. Moose wanted to show his pearly whites,
so i thought i'd include him too.
we've all seen this guilty face at one time or another, right?
ain't love grand? ;-)
Whoa... sudden change of mood... ;-)
This watercolour was done for my book.
Beginnings are so exciting, aren't they?
I've been writing little stories...
memories of years passed.
I'm amazed at how quickly they come to me.
Funny how we remember certain things
as if they happened yesterday.
Still playing with mediums...
the first is watercolour,
this one (greenish with the vertical lines) is acrylic.
I think i prefer the watercolour...
how about you?
And here it is in an actual page layout.
This is what my book could look like.
This is the kind of book I want to do.
Painting on the left, writing on the right.
The painting on the left may not be "boxed" either...
i may just have watercolour, undefined edges.
I just need to make sure i'm not exposing anyone
by sharing these stories.
Including myself. ;-)
And now, let's return to smiling, shall we?
Thank you all for the support you've shown me.
I've even received a few emails personally encouraging me
to carry on with the book.
It warms my heart.
We are all perfect strangers, and yet...
You all restore my faith in humanity.
