Granny and her dog

On the way to my hair appointment the other day, I caught a glimpse of an elderly lady standing outside of the bank talking to a security guard. Her hair was silver and she had a little black terrier in her arms. The image stuck in my mind and I knew I had to illustrate it. I loved what she was wearing and her little dog all relaxed resting his head in the crook of her elbow. I had fun illustrating an elderly person.

Safari Zoo

Talking to my son about our summer visit to the San Diego safari zoo made me think about some of the animal illustrations I was playing around with. This is the pick of the day.

An octopus' love

I became quite consumed about Octopus after hearing about the 400 new hatchlings at our local aquarium. However, it saddened me when I learned about the octopus' life cycle where the mother dies shortly after the little ones hatch. As a mother, it breaks my heart to think that I won't be able to watch my children grow up, but I guess in the animal kingdom, it is what it is. So I drew this one to express my feelings.

the girl and her ducks

This is a little story I have been working on about a girl and her pet ducks. Instead of figuring about the words, I think I should focus more on the illustrations for now.

In the beginning of summer, I wanted to create a blog that is dedicated to my illustrations. I was eager to start but wanted to wait until September, when school starts, to launch it. The waiting was a bit nerve wrecking but it was good to have the time to think, reflect and plan it out. There is a few more days until school actually starts but I just couldn't wait any longer so I created the blog banner and posted it. I did it in one night, but I figure I can update it with new ones along the way. The idea came from one of my daily walks with my dog and the boys, the cat was included because he is part of the gang, he doesn't come for walks with us.
