Mary in Aya's: half collab for Gretchen and pocket item

Sakura pens
Benny and the Xenotarsosaurus, Benny and the hyenas,
Benny and the Skunk, Benny and the Crocodile.
3 in acrylic andone Artrage digital painting.
For Aya's packet,
because all my main 4 pix for her are from (for) this book.

Okay, this completes my visit with the lovely Aya and her lovely Moleskine and I will be mailing it to Gretchen as soon as I can.

Are these drawings to be used in a book? I am wondering what the story line is... book, book, book!
Very nice, fun, and adventurous. Things to do before you die - wrestle with a silver back gorilla, ride on a giant stingray (sorry Steve Irwin - miss you!, stroke a Cheetah (not Tiger Woods -had to go there). Really enjoyed these!

Thanks so much, Mike! All of these are the one in the Mole itself are for the book I am working on, Brave Benny's Animal Alphabet. It;s for my grandson, Frankie, and my other grandkids, too, and in particular, as well, for the Brooklyn Art Library Project. If I can get them to be good enough, I plan also to submit them for publication as a book.

Meanwhile, I have also taken some of them and developed them into separate stories (possible future books.)

I have one I did called Benny's favorite color, which I have published through shutter fly and it came out great--I was really pleased. WHile the grandkids are all little, writing books for them and illustrating them is really fun.

That half face would be very fun to finish, Mary.

Thanks so much, Andrea.

I've just started yet another kids; book. But I don't want to leave half a kids' book illo for the next person.
