The store is going to be a blend of all kinds of fun things...mostly paper crafting materials
(decorative papers, stamps, supplies to make cards and scrapbook pages) and also cool vintage finds. I thought a birdcage would be a good symbol for such a store and Michelle agreed with me, so off I went from there and this is the final product. The store will also use the design on bags and things like that as well.
If you live in San Diego, you'll have to go check it out...after it opens on May 1, of course!

I don't expect to win, but it would be cool if I did because the prize is 500.00 donated to the charity of your choice. How cool is that! I'd pick Autism Speaks, because they are doing such great things to raise awareness of autism and to raise money for much needed research.

"Whiskers was heavy and didn't like being picked up too much, but Chloe didn't care, she carried him around whenever she got the chance."
My entry for this week's Illustration Friday with the theme of "heavy". The little girl and cat are based on a photo of my daughter when she was about 4, carrying our old cat around. That poor cat was drug all over the place - she put up with though, maybe she liked it more than she let on! The text in the background is a page from Alice in Wonderland where Alice is having a conversation with the Cheshire Cat. I wanted a subtle background that had to do with cats, but was also related to children, so I thought it was a fun choice.

Of course, I did an illo about Leap year, when I saw the theme for this week over at Illustration Friday. It was, after all, Feb 29 when the theme was posted. I always have felt sorry for people that have birthdays on that day, so I hope you all had a GREAT one this year.
I'm really working hard at developing my children's illustration style and I think I'm getting close to the way I want to create images for those publications. It's painterly with some collage elements and colors that are fun, but not too bright. I'd love to hear your comments, especially those of you who work in the children's market.
Well, it's back to tax prep. Ugh! I'd rather be illustrating!
