Squirrel Alert in color!


Hurray! Finally a post in color!

I love picture books, and reading illustrator's blogs. So when I saw Alicia's book give-away, which called for an illustration depicting the importance of a tree, I decided yesterday's sketch fit the bill. If you're a squirrel being chased by a dog on a daily basis, trees are very important indeed! Dogs like trees for other reasons, of course.

Thanks everyone. I had a lot of fun with this one. I could draw crazy dogs all day!

Alicia & her children were so sweet. I really enjoyed listening to their presentation. It was priceless. And I'm thrilled they enjoyed my illustration. This cyberspace stuff totally rocks!

This is fantastic! Because I was on a blog-break I totally missed your 21 day exercise - I'm very impressed. You draw such cute children and animals - really fun stuff!!! I have to give you a nod over on my blog soon because I was trying to list all the 21 day'ers along the way.
