Barb is Back

Previously Barb asked me to do an illustration for her blog. She came back to me with a request for doodling something for her web page: Barb's Create a Book. This is the design I drew without the text that she asked me to add. I had quite a time getting that part just right for her.

I had an evern more difficult time getting the designed e-mailed to her. Part of my problem, I think, was that I added the text in another program that I am comfortable using, and some how that program turned the whole design into a file that was too large to send by the usual methods.

You need to go to her web page to see the completed illustration. For some reason, when I tried to post that version here it appeared as a negative, reversing the colors. I tried it three different times with the same results. I don't understand why.

So, Barb, the "demons" in this drawing are still there. I can't explain it. It's the drawing that has fought us all the way.

Rick, that is a fantastic illustration! I think it's my favorite of everything you've done so far. I'm so sorry you had such trouble, but it was definitely worth the effort.

Anyway-just thought I'd say g'day!
Don't be a stranger!

I love your work too. Someday when I get some extra cash I want you to do an illustration for my blog. Someday. sigh. I love Dawn's picture, and this one is really good, too. Once again, sigh. Oh, I enjoyed the poop story. I have often wondered how in the world my 2-year-old and 4-year-old have so much poop in them when they don't actually eat anything.

To Janet: Your might be surprized at how cheaply I can be bought.

love this one and super excited that I found eggy. I still can't find him on the dragon sketch though and it's really eating at me, I become obsessed with these things, I'm off to try again :)
