Adel Leaves A Hero Behind

Adel saw the kids chatting on the nearby hill, and clumsily loosened grip on her childhood companion. He fell to the ground with a thump, as she skipped off hastily in the direction of her peers to hear of the latest gossip.

This latest drawing is for Illustration Friday's new topic, "Clumsy". We've all been there! As for Adel, her clumsiness had some intentional undertones ...

Bremman and His Bewilderment

This week's Illustration Friday topic is "Wilderness". Bremman the Bear has wandered far from his cozy cottage into a seemingly endless forest. It's completely wild, and he is beginning to wonder if it's normal to feel heart racing fear and childlike curiosity at the same time ... just as he is starting to wander too far, a strange bird calls down to him telling him it's best to return home.

Belle is confined only ten minutes more!

Belle the bear is confined in her chair
She is not free until the plate is clean!
Poor Belle, Poor Belle
What shall she do?
It looks like she must eat up her food!

This week's Illustration Friday topic is "Confined". I thought about being a child again, and all the ways they are confined in order to achieve a level of safety and security. Cribs, car seats, even diapers ... Poor Belle wishes she could eat at the big table with the rest of the family. Only in time ...

Sunday Snack Nap

Ahhh...Sunday. A time to be with the cabinets full of wonderful snacks. Snack Nap is an illustration I made while considering snacks and their needs. Snack's need to have time to relax so I pay tribute to all they do for us in this drawing.

Illustration Friday - A Time for Renewal

Illustration Friday's topic this week is "Renewal". A most appropriate time to reflect on this past year, and renew our bodies and minds to start fresh in the new one. My drawing is for Peace and the renewal of the spirit of compassion within us all.
