I Like Shoes

I really do enjoy shoes.  Not as much as books but still, I like a good shoe.  I just wish the ones I wanted were not so darn expensive.  I'm not talking about those shoes with the 12 inch heels. Can't afford them and if I ever got into a pair of those 12 inch babies I would probably fall and hurt myself badly.  So, I won't go there.  But, I know, because I've seen them myself that their are wonderful comfy shoes out there that are calling to me.  Anyone else like shoes?  I guess that may be a silly question. Have a good one everyone.

The Book Store

Like most of you, I love a book store.  I really do.  I can spend hours looking at books and I also spend a good deal of money on books.  I can't help it.  At least that's what I tell my husband.  Anyway this is a little illustration I did (very fast) of a local bookstore. Hope everyone is well and happy. Take care.

Just Fooling Around

Well, I've been sketching and fooling around with Photoshop.  These are some of the drawings I came up with.  Keep in mind that these were drawn very fast, mostly because I can't wait to finish something and also because I kind of like that spontaneous  feeling in a drawing.  Hope everyone has a nice weekend.  It's raining like cats and dogs here so I'll be indoors all weekend.  Oh, can you tell I live with a little corgi dog?  Lois thinks she is an excellent model. I tend to agree.

Book Cover Idea

I did this a little while ago but thought I would go ahead and share it with you.  I was trying to design a book jacket cover for my portfolio.  The author shown on the cover is my cousin.  She writes wonderful stories and is not yet published, only because she has not sent any manuscripts off the publishers.  She will do it some day.  Then there is me.  I send artwork off all the time.  I'm almost blind from addressing promotional postcards that I'm sending off today.  Like I said I send stuff all the time and yet nothing happens.  Well, sometimes I get a note or a letter from an art director.  But, I have not illustrated a children's book yet.  Now, the strange thing is, I feel like I will someday. Gosh, somebody's got to notice me someday.  I sure hope so. Take care everyone!
