Ring Bear

Quickie sketch tonight for a friend of mine who, only a month away from marriage, realized that it's called a 'ring bearer' and not a 'ring bear'.

Polly and the Pirates

Stopped by Floating World Comics in downtown Portland today and found volume 2 of 'Polly and the Pirates' by Ted Naifeh there. I've had volume 1 for years without even knowing the second was out so I picked it up. Cute story and beautiful art, check it out if you're into that sort o' thing. Here's a drawing of Polly about to get all stabby.

Birthday Fairy

Forgot to post this from a while ago, I've been transferring files from my old computer onto my new super awesome, gigantic, complete overkill, art/gaming computer! Hopefully won't have to upgrade now for a very very long time. This is another sketch/paint collaboration from me and the dad of the mermaid girl for his other daughter, Ruth, whose birthday was in July.

My sketch:

His colors:

Coffee time!

Illustrations for some friends with an espresso theme....very fun project. And I actually did the colors this time (with some outside consultation, of course).

Happy Anniversary, Joe!

This bit of silliness started off as a joke, but then suddenly became Joe's anniversary card. (click for a larger image) Lucky guy!  Happy 10 years to my husband! Here's to many decades more!

Valentine for Joe

Joe and I usually don't do anything for Valentine's day. We never really felt the need to. But after almost 10 years of marriage we are turning a new leaf!  So tomorrow we're gonna make a great dinner at home and spend some time together. Here's what I made him tonight as a present.

Happy Birthday Grandma!

The coolest grandma in the universe turns 82 today!  All she ever wants for her birthday is to go watch her team, the Pittsburgh Penguins play.  Watching her enjoy the game is almost as good as watching the game itself. Happy Birthday, Gram!

Birthday Mermaid

A friend of mine asked me to do a drawing for his daughter's birthday, which is today.  I like to sketch, but painting frustrates me. He likes to paint, but not sketch.  So we collaborated, and here's what we came up with. Happy birthday Leah!

Here's my sketch:

And here's his colors:
