Illustration Friday---Entangle

Thanksgiving is over, so I guess it's time to think about the Christmas decorations. Not quite ready for the tree yet, hopefully next weekend we can make the trek to the Christmas tree farm and cut down the perfect (or near perfect) one.

This week's Illustration Friday is "music," so for today I'm putting up an illustration of a card I created a few years ago based on my friend's cats.

Visited the Rose Gallery at Brandeis U. on Sat. where some of the best pieces from their permanent collection are on display. Some big names from the world of contemporary art such as Picasso, Cezanne, Chagall, Magritte, Lichtenstein, Warhol, Nevelson, DeWitt, Chicago, Motherwell, and de Kooning, as well as others. It's a small museum and free to the public. There had been several articles in the Globe recently about their financial woes and the threat to sell off some of the works to raise funds. It is worth visiting---this show goes through May.

Illustration Friday---Unbalanced

When baking, there is nothing more frustrating than finding a part of the cake still stuck to the pan. Then having to try to reassemble the pieces and hide them under the frosting.

Studies of kids for my art room story.

Illustration Friday---"Blur"

Getting some work done on my "A is for Art Room" picture book idea. I set up the text for each page of a storyboard and am trying to create a cast of characters to inhabit the art room. Feel like there should be other ongoing stories happening to various kids throughout the pages, as well as the alphabet vocabulary and descriptions.

Illustration Friday----"Skinny"   Thanks to my daughter Emily, as she gave me the idea. I couldn't think of anything original for this theme.
