Which One Did She Choose?

Some have asked to be informed as to which illustration "Stimey," over at stimeyland , chose for her prize. Her choice was "Barnyard Boogie," an illustration that I posted clear back in January 8, of '07. This is one of two illustrations that I drew for a contest that the local county fair was having to illustrate that year's theme. (More details at that post.)

Stimey made an interesting choice in that this particular drawing is larger than I normally draw my cartoons. It is an 11x14, rather than the usual 8x10. So, she got the most bang for her buck - or non-buck as the case may be. Thanks again Jean, oops! sorry, Stimey, for particapating in the give-away.

(That's the first time that I did the strike through thingy. I learned it over in the comments on Dawn's blog.)

Here's something that I drew a couple of years ago. I live where fishing is king and at the time I was trying to drawing a few cartoons that people might like to purchase. I have a few fishing toons that I've drawn. This is one of them.


If you're interested in purchasing a print for yourself you might be surprised how cheaply I price them. I find that most artist over price their work. While I prefer to actually sell my stuff - rather than let it sit in a box somewhere.

You contact me at the e-mail address given in the column to the right.

I Saw that one and liked it too. That's when I was looking through trying to decide which one I would have if I won. How many others did that?

Stimey said...

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one. I've looked all over that Barnyard Boogie and can't find the eggman. I'm going to have to spend some quality time with it once it gets here. :)

LOL - so did you use < s > or < del >? Just weirdly curious. The fish one is really funny. That may be one reason I don't fish! You are very talented. I wish I had known about you sooner. I will have to see about getting one done for my hubby for his birtday or Christmas this year. Either way it's a ways off - his b'day is a week before Christmas!

I know how to do all the things like this and this, but I never learned to cross things out. You will have to give instructions for when I start blogging again.

ok went back searched again... found him in the fish drawing hiding in the weeds ... on the barn yard one i think hes really small online but i think hes in the grass to the left of the barn doing a little dance!
Martha and i agreed we would have chosen the tree holding the lumberjack if we had won as we both love it!
and so far my favorite eggman is on corys drawing hes just too cool diving into the stream!
ohhh rick you will be pleased to know martha is driving much better but we realized she has a height issue and will need to sit on a pillow to see properly to judge distance LOL... poor kid!
have a great day!

To Peach (again): You're making it too easy for everyone else.

Xtreme English said...

Julie said...

I would have picked the lumberjack/tree picture too - for my husband, who cut down about 50 trees in our yard between Christmas and New Year's day last year!!!

peach said...
