I fear that the time between someone placing an order and me getting it done is getting a bit longer. It took me longer than I like to get to Cherokee's request for an illustration of her, her husband Michael, and their pets. When she first made the request, I down loaded the photos from her MySpace page and put them in a file. By the time I got back to her name on my list I had forgotten that she wanted me to include their dogs and cats as well. I didn't realize my mistake until after I had gotten this illustration inked in.
That was the night that I decided to put the pencil away and lay out my drawings on my living room floor. (Check out my "A Growing Portfolio"post on January 31st.)
So, My mistake is their gain. I ended up sending them TWO illustrations. The black and white one above, and then the full color one which does include the entire zoo - they've got a lot of pets!!!
Check out the photos on Cherokee's World Photography Blog.
Also: While Aileen was musing over at her blog she sent me a "You Make My Day Award."
I've seen a number of these "awards" being passed around from blog to blog. This is the first time I've had one bestowed upon me. I am honored, Aileen, that you would choose me, and thrilled that ANYONE would say that I make their day. I can barely make toast - much less someone's day!!!
Like being tagged, I fear that I am not very good at these things, and so I'm not passing it forward. But, I will say that if you want to read something "unusal" try reading Kelly Jean's February 8th post. It's a... umm... "classic".
