Angry Bunny

I don't know what that bear did to aggravate the bunnies, but he's going to be hearing about it, at length :D

This Petty Pace

I got This Petty Pace, a book of Mary Petty drawings, and thought I'd share a few images from it. According to the James Thurber foreword, 'She never studied art, but taught herself, with the same slow patience and great care with which she makes each of her drawings, sitting in what she insists is a dark corner, surrounded by a ring of eraser crumbs. It takes her three weeks to finish a drawing, and at the end of that time she protests that she hates the drawing and herself. Everybody else, of course, loves it and her.'
I think her cartoons have a great idiosyncratic charm, and I'd love to have that sort of feel in my work.

Illustration Friday- Adrift

This week's theme was adrift, which made me think of NC Wyeth & Howard Pyle's pirate paintings, particularly Pyle's 'Marooned' below. The tattoo is my favorite part.

Happy Birthday, Vickie & Lizzie

This year's annual Savanella Bday portrait, done in photoshop.

Their friend Heather had a birthday party with them, so I made a snooki of jersey shore bday card for her.
