Illustration Friday: Glamour

My 4 year old daughter's favorite pastime is dressing up, and rarely a day goes by that she doesn't ask her daddy to marry her. I just take her by the hand, dance with her a little, and we're married. ;) Her next favorite thing to dress up as is a vagabond.
And here is her version of my illustration. I love the little thought clouds with hearts in them. My heart just melted.
My 7 yr. old son wanted to get into the glamour action as well and drew this very rich house made of gold and diamonds, with colored glass windows.

Illustration Friday: Cat

I truly think that cats have ulterior motives. Maybe not quite as sadistic as this one, but their thought processes are a little too human if you ask me.

Illustration for Play Therapy

Here's a little illustration I did for the Association for Play Therapy, Utah Chapter. I was thrilled to be able to do this for them.

Illustration Friday: Flavor

This is my first foray into Adobe Illustrator. I've been a Freehand man for 10 years, and because Adobe bought Macromedia, I'm sore afraid that Freehand is going the way of the Dodo. So, I thought I'd better learn this program and learn to love it. Since it's my first, it took me 3 times as long to illustrate it than it would have otherwise.

Vanilla is still my favorite.

My 7 year old son and 4 year old daughter got into the spirit of Illustration Friday this week along side me. They just love their daddy.

This is my son's. It says "The Funnest Place in the World is Candy Land." Everything here is made of candy. Chocolate sticks holding up the sign, which is made of a chocolate bar. The rollercoaster is made of two candycanes, and has a gummy worm for the car. The seats are made of straight candycanes. The wheels are Life Savers. There is a trampoline made from a cake, and a gingerbread man is standing next to it. The clouds are made of frosting, and the sky is water. The grass is green Jolly Ranchers, and the dirt is chocolate ice cream.

This is my daughter's. She says that it's a princess giving a prince a brain M&M because, apparently, his brain is asleep. Those are M&Ms lining the bottom in a pattern as well.
