It is raining today, so we are cleaning and organizing inside. I finally got to scanning these photos of my grandparents that my mother gave me. One photo is of my grandfather on his pony, and the other is of my grandmother(in the middle) and her siblings. I love them because they are of my grandparents, of course, but also they are such beautiful old photographs.

I did this piece for a mailer announcing my updated website (not quite done yet) The image came from a sketch I did for the illustration Friday topic "multiples".

Hooray!! I just finished my work for a book of nursery rhymes. The book is British, and it is interesting to see how their nursery rhymes differ from ours. Two of the rhymes I had to illustrate are about children trying to harm animals. Hmmm. Not what I think of when I am trying to read something soothing to a young child.
Here's a spread from the book. It looks a bit piecemeal, but when the text is in there I think it will pass.
