I have to post something today, it's my birthday! :-D All I have to show are some images I gathered for my Moo cards. Moo cards are half the size of regular business cards and you can have several different images on one order.
While working with the images in Photoshop I found that I really like the way some of the cropping came out. I think they are kind of fun and that I'm going to enjoy handing them out.

I downloaded Jane LaFazio's wonderful workshop, From Art Journaling to Art. The idea is to work in your sketchbook, drawing and watercolor painting and to then use those images in your art. Wonderful techniques and lots of inspiration! I haven't quite gotten to use the techniques that incorporate my sketches into other pieces yet, but I'm looking forward to trying them out.

Finally getting to upload some images for my donkey project. I've done some block carving for a possible illustration for the SYALER Donkey & Mule Show brochure and flyer. The image on the right is a proof to check the carving and to see if I need to fine tune the image (or to start over completely...). I like this one so far and I added some color with colored pencils to the image on the left. I may remove some of the lines from the background, although I like the way they make it look like an old woodblock print. I'll wait a day or two before I make that decision.
I have another drawing of a mother donkey and her adorable baby that I'd like to make into a printing block. It's a little larger and slightly more complex, but I think it might make a wonderful illustration.
