CAKE and Inspire Me Thursday ~ Word Art

When I saw "Cake" as this week's topic, I thought about just how many different types of cakes there are, and felt drawing just one kind wouldn't be too exciting. So I tried to come up with a way to incorporate multiple cakes, and wound up not drawing even one (unless you count the one being made).

Thanks to Carla at Anonyrrie for giving me the idea to use this illustration for both "Cake" and Inspire Me Thursday's "Word Art" challenge. More often than not, I incorporate typography/lettering into my designs, and it seemed appropriate that I participate.

Illustration Friday - Angels & Devils

Micron pens, watercolor pencils and colored pencils.

The Letter B

I am fascinated with textile patterns, particularly those of Navajo blankets. I love the three-dimensional quality of the graphics, so I decided to have some fun with this "B."

The Letter A

I had a couple of requests for an "A" (plus it rounds out my own initials), so here it is...

Illustration Friday - UNDER THE SEA

This drawing evolved from a sketch I did about two years ago. Originally, this was the "Aloha Dance." For this week's Illustration Friday theme, I blatantly ripped off the name of the dance in "Back to the Future." I couldn't resist!

Unfortunately, since the original is 17" wide, the scan is showing up really small when I post it (even when I click for a larger version), so I'm including some detail shots. If anyone knows how to get larger (or wider) posts to come out close to the real size on Blogger, I'm interested to know how it's done.
