21 Day Creative Challenge- Day 1 of 21

I'm joining in with a bunch of illustrators who are doing a creative challenge that started with the talented illustrator Gina Perry. Here is what she had to say:

"During Laurie Halse Anderson's keynote at the 2008 NESCBWI conference last weekend, she gave us a challenge. Think you don't have time? She does. At least 15 minutes. Pick a time of day and mark it in your dayplanner or calender. She mentioned that it takes 21 days to form a new habit. Also, pick a buddy or two to help you stay focused and on track. I challenge all of you who read this to join me."

And thanks to Alicia Padron for posting about it too and getting me to join in the fun! For more info about the challenge, please go here and here.

The challenge I picked for myself is to draw people....something I still feel not 100% comfortable with. Its probably why you don't see many people here on this blog. But this is a challenge! And here is one!

On a side note, THANK YOU so much for all the well wishes on my engagement :-)

Re-ment toys are the way to my heart. Especially when a ring was hidden inside this box. Yikes, I am engaged!

I love you, Math Boy Kun. (Now everybody knows.)

Its been like Christmas in April:
BIG thank you to Dan Goodsell for sending an incredible box full of Mr. Toast stuff....I love everything! Check out the Mr. Toast & Friends Art show I participated in here.

Thank you, Princess Tomato for sending some chicken goodness. Its always appreciated around here. I especially love the little plushie which I now named "Chick Fruit."

Also, an awesome postcard exchange with Loulou & Tummie from the Netherlands...they are a cool illustrator duo. I love the postcards. Three cheers for vector goodness!

And...there is also some really happy personal news that I would like to share with all of you soon :-)

Another attempt at going through my fabric stash: fabric collage on watercolor paper greeting card.

Oh how funny with all the comments on the coupon! Everyone is taking up on the free chicken leg offer, I better stock up :-) I think I will do a real promo with it. It will be fun to see who actually redeems the coupon.

Illustration Friday-Save

With the recession and all, its good to give your customers a little incentive. :-)

I've always loved doing funny ads/coupons and the like. This was naturally what I came up with when I saw this week's Illustration Friday topic was "Save."

And thanks for all the lovely comments on my new banner! Just needed to freshen up the blog here. I finally updated the new blogger template. The new version is so easy to use! I don't know why it took me so long.
