My kid Monday

Here's a funny little drawing my youngest, Ailis, did. Unfortunately I scanned it in grey scale so the title "Pink Babies" is a little lost.
On occassion I warm up by drawing circles(thanks Charlie) and I'm assuming my daughter picked up on this.

Bill Peet

A long time ago I posted a link to the site of the amazing Bill Peet.
Well I was at the site yesterday and was looking at all of his wonderful sketches when I realized people might not know where to look(on the site) to see them. Not terribly easy to get to.
So hears a direct link to his book list.
Be sure to check out each and every book as there are visual treasures in all of them.

It's my blogs birthday

Wow!!! One year ago today I hopped on the blog bandwagon and never looked back. Over 45000 views (40000 are probably mine). Looking back it would appear that starting this blog was one of the best things I've done for my own creativity.

As I've told anyone who will listen having an artistic blog is an ass kicker. You're putting it out there baby and you better keep putting it out there.

I'd like to thank all those who have supported me with their generous comments and to those who have felt I deserved to be linked on their own sites.
Cartoon Brew, Red Dot blog, Filboid Studge, Frederator, Blammo, Kauffman etc... and all those who've stopped by (from all over the world) and had a peek.

I hope this year will be as good if not better than the last.

My kid Monday's

Well here's a little experiment. My kid Monday's where I 'll post a drawing from one of my kids. Hopefully you'll find them slightly more interesting than watching home movies. I have three great children. Breandan 7, Teleri 6, and Ailis(Alish) 4.I'll start off with this drawing from Teleri.

test below

Below is a temporary test I've done in trying to upload video to blogger. Not crazy about the advertisement on the movie player. I will keep looking for other sites. Google video isn't working for me at the moment.

New Year, New posts

Well, I've finally gotten around to posting some new sketches. I've been on holidays for the last little while and have done lots of things besides drawing. One of which was to buy a new computer. I didn't have alot to spend so hopefully I got the biggest bang for my buck. That's what they told me in the store anyways. Should be able to do all the things I need and more.

I hope everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable Christmas and had some time to relax and recharge. I know I have.

This year I'm planning on adding a few different things to my blog. Inspired by Ward Jenkins I'm going to pick a day of the week to show some of the truly wonderful artwork of one of my 3 kids. Hopefully it will be interesting to someone besides Mom and Dad.

Also now that I have Video editing capabilities I'm hoping to add some video clips of some of the work I've done over the years. I've seen this on a few blogs and it looks promising.

And finaly I'm going to try to join in on one of those Illustration Friday's thing. We'll see how long that lasts.

Oh yeah and actually finish one of the 800 children's books I've started. We'll see...
