Lookee what I made...

I made pictures yesterday. Since the refrigerator is already crowded with important things like other people’s report cards and recipes and cards and pictures of cute children, I’m sticking them up here. Also, I don’t want T. to see them before Christmas, since they are illustrations for his Christmas book.

Here they are:



This one goes with the story about the pipe cleaner men trying to take over the world.



This one is for the story about the authors who jump out of their dust-jacket pictures and have a conversation and adventure.

I am not, obviously, the world’s greatest artist. I have decided that I don’t care. I like making pictures. I have always liked making pictures. And now, since I am the one who cleans the house, I can make as much mess with art as I want without getting in trouble. Sometimes it is good that I can pass as a grownup.

I love them! Does the rabbit grab an epee and fight back?

Nah... He's nonviolent
The text is all about the authors and how annoying Brian Jacques is to the rest of them. It's a silly story, of course. I am working on something much longer for T. but it's going to have to be for some other year. I just dashed off three quick stories to have something to give him this time around.

The third picture, which is intended to be in the style of a comic book cover, has exceeded my skill to color. I called in reinforcements, at first for advice, but now for collaboration. T. will get a picture drawn by Mom and colored by Dad in this Christmas book. I'm happy I asked Rick for the help because he's super pleased to have been asked and to have something to contribute. I'll post that one after he colors it and sends it back.

How so? Because every time they try to do anything he's too busy preparing an elaborate feast?

I'll email you the story. It's short. :)
