The hole in my thinking

ugly dogs attack willie's book !

Why ugly dogs? I say, why not! I don't know, I found some images accidentally while looking for some online reference material for another dog drawing of a different nature. I saw these "ugly dog" photos and had to draw me some. The speech bubbles were definitely an after-thought - the drawings could have stood alone, but it seemed like the pages needed more. Anyhow, I'm not sure if Willie's book is the last I have to work on in this first round. I think it just might be. Whatever the case, it's off to Ammon today! In the meantime, can anyone tell me who has my book? I'd greatly appreciate it. :)

#2 Lino Turtle

LIno Take One!

My daughter Katie and I spent a couple of hours at this afternoon - after the zoo. We created our first of many linos! I love it!

My 6 year old's Lino

BB, Sleepy and Superquick

Milo has been sending me sketches and pretty paper on my envelopes and packages with each mole shipment, so this morning, getting ready to send Jessie's Mole off (which I probably can't do today because the post office is probably closed [?], but I can get it ready anyway), I made a super quick sketch of BB who had just gotten up--less than two minutes--it took more than three times as long to scan it as to draw it. LOL! Aiee!

Fallen Moon, Last in Jessie's

Fallen Moon, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. This is from a dream a few
nights ago. It's the last one in Jessie's, which I'll be packaging up
and sending off to Jessie as soon as I can--maybe not today but soon.
Gouache and colored pencil.
