Are We There Yet???

And who else could have won the Augustpalooza Giveaway but

from “Are We There Yet?” Join me in congratulating Janet and even better, go check out that blog of hers. Janet, you know the drill by now, I bet. Please send me your addy at canwiggins@gmail.com.

This next little piece is entitled “Birds of a Feather”. Sort of a tip of the hat to the Pet/Owner Syndrome… you know how some married couples look alike? Some pets and owners do too, from some photos I’ve seen. I also wanted to show Miss Mimi Hollace Green that I really am managing more than heads in my "body of work" … lol! Coloured pencils are good at making fun little "popped into my head" drawings.


Below is a very rough pencil sketch of Oberon’s Court from Midsummer Night’s Dream – I know it’s tough to see. That’s Oberon with the leaf crown and cape and Puck is sneaking a peek up at His Nibs. Yes, those are faerie princesses gathered around, always hoping Titania and her ass won’t show back up so they can have a chance at The King o’ the Wood himself. (Listen to how I talk here! It’s the call of the wild!)

And this here boyo is Lysander from That Same Play. A coloured pencil sketch of a character that I always thought of as an overripe peach, personally. A tad soft and near spoiled… but that’s just me. Of course, you knew he’d be (almost) a redhead!
Someone asked why I am so quiet lately on the blogs, etc.


Yep. All the livelong day and weekends till August 22… supposedly. The extra OT moula this week will come in handy for next weekend when I am hopping in the car for -- yes indeed, another roadtrip! This one with a definite artistic slant in mind, too, as I trek down I85 to the North Atlanta Trade Center for FolkFest 2009.
Stay tuned and as always -- Get More of What You Love.
