I HATE showing mine because I am always trying stuff for the first time (like this one) -- I don't know how to paint, draw OR illustrate but if I don't try??? not trying is worse than only doing the things I'm good at, but it is still EXCRUCIATING to post these very very badly done pieces! Thank you for the comment ... now my little Velveteen Rabbit won't feel so lonely! (or ugly! smile)

Thanks for visiting!

Chalupacabra's bite can usually be soothed with Rolaids or Tums...

Don't worry about posting pieces that you think are "bad". I have plenty of those, but yet learned from each. Best wishes!

This is very charming.

I think the piece is successful.. I know it's a rabbit. It has an expression. The drawing has a mood.

Good for you for being brave enough to show your work! No one said art was easy.

Wow. I just remembered reading Velveteen Rabbit to my older boy when he was 3 and bawling my eyes out.

Hope your computer monitor didn't sustain too much damage in that coffee incident. You can always count on a gorilla for a laugh.

Love your 10 minute illustration!
