Yay for Vikings!

I did this little illustration when I worked at Novell. I don't think it was used but it made me laugh. Crazy little viking!

Yep- a random drawing from my files

I figured this would be a good image for the top of a grocery list. Heh heh.

#4 and Happy Monday!

This little sketch is called "Boy at Fence".
I think he is waving to someone with his hat. That is what I picture. Just a sweet image of a little boy in the summer time.
And happy Monday! I was not excited to get up this morning nor to drive into work. I wanted to sleep in. Probably because I didn't accomplish everything I wanted to this weekend. But I did accomplish some things. So all is not lost. ; ) And who knows what I can accomplish this week!

#3 and 5 years

Drawing #3 in three days! I am on a roll!Also I have been at my work for 5 years today! Wow! Didn't know if I would make it through the first year. It was just so not an industry I had been involved in. But all I had to do was draw and design and I always have done that. So I finally got my feet wet in the crafty industry and kind of have a handle on it now. Phew!

#2 sketch...Yep, I am doing good so far.

I figured I might as well add this little girl since she goes with the boy from yesterday. Ta da!
(I am taking images that I have already created so it isn't like I am suddenly creating these images each night. But it will get to that point after a while.)

My New Goal...

Hopefully, maybe not possible, but really have a goal for myself... to post an illustration image a day. Yah right! Well maybe every few days. It is good practice for me but I just warn you that some of the images maybe not be the most exciting... but it is a start.
So here is the first one...
So this is my first of a lot of images to post. This will make me work harder at what I love to do. Create illustrations. I like this wonky style. Yes that is a made-up word. Welcome to me and my wonkiness! So I love how the text sits in his shirt and the line style. And how the color just is splotchy (yes, that is a word!). So there you go. The first of many.

Just Sweet.

So little 3 year old nephew Wy was in the back of my sister Karen's car about a week ago. They were on their way running an errand. Wyatt just burst into laughter and was giggling in the back of the car. Finally Karen asked what was so funny. And Wy said, "Jason so funny. Jason so funny, mom!"
So who knows what that means but I know Wy talks to him. The innocence of little children. Too bad they don't remember these amazing experiences when they are older.
And just today Karen asked Wy what Jason is doing and Wy said, "Jason on planet." Again, who knows what this all means but I really do believe that Jason made Wy laugh the other day while he sat in his carseat in the back of their car.

Standing up for my Sister

So my cute sister Karen was driving around her town looking for a Kinkos. She and her family have only lived there for a little over a year. She had no reason to look for Kinkos till today. So she is driving around in the area it is supposed to be... and she comes upon a Sherwin Williams paint store. She pulls in there so that she can turn around and keep going to her destination. Just before she pulls in, a Sherwin Willams truck pulls in. So Karen follows him in to the parkinglot. All of a sudden- WITHOUT HIM LOOKING BACK AT ALL- he starts to back up so that he can back into his parking space. Hello! I am mad for her even though she was pretty upset about it. So luckily SHE WAS PAYING ATTENTION so she could slow and back away from him. Of course her poor heart was pumping hard and she got out of the car and waited for him to get out of his truck. He finally had seen her and I think he was embarrassed because he pretended to ignore her. Finally he got out and my sister explained that she was sorry to have been in his way but that it would have been nice if he had looked back. He put it all on her shoulders and just laughed in her face and said something about "women drivers'. Karen kind of blew it off and was just frustrated with the guy. Not only because he wouldn't apologize but that he made it into a joke against her. But as she was getting back in her car, another Sherwin Williams employee was coming out of the store- a guy. And he looked over at her and laughed. The dorky guy who almost hit my sister's car probably can't even get it through his thick skull that he could have hit my sister's car and then it would have been his fault. Anyway it bugs me that some guys, not my guy friends of course, are so thick-headed and also cause a lot of accidents on the road because they are such "amazing" drivers and everyone else is stupid. And that women drivers apparently should not be on the road. Yeah- we don't want to be when there are dumb men drivers taking dumb risks and need Driver's Ed 101 as a monthly class! Anyway- I told my sister that we are boycotting Sherwyn Williams Paint store from now on. I mean, talk about very inappropriate of that guy.
I am proud to rant about this today for the main reason that this guy was in the wrong and put it on her and made her feel badly. How dare he!

Ah, Saturday!

Nothing like the weekend! Though I am happiest when I accomplish something worthwhile... So, here's to hopefully doing that.
Happy weekend to everyone!

wanted to make a comment. I am SO grateful for my family. They are my best friends. My friends of course- that aren't related- are pretty sweet too. I am just VERY blessed. WOW. I am amazed at how many blessings I have. That's all for now.
