Karen contacted me for a very special Father’s Day commission for a trio of lovely individuals: her husband, son, and their beagle. Her son adores his daddy, and loves the romping outdoorsy aspect of summer. I think we have a farmer on our hands with his love for daddy’s ‘tractor’ (Lawnmower) and barns! I produced 3 roughs for Karen to choose from, below.

She went with one of the more fantastical ones, much to my delight!
Here are a few close-ups:
Thank you, Karen! What a wonderful family you have!
This story was for Rabid Rabbit 10, “Kitty, Kitty”. I was reading a book of Russian fairy tales at the time and it was a tie between this one and one where a 9 year old drunkard kills an entire army and seduces the Tzar’s daughter. Incidentally, most of those tales ended in, “It was all true, I was there, I drank at their wedding but all of it ran down into my beard and I didn’t get a drop.”
Another great MoCCA Artfest, I walked around on Sunday to touch base with friends I haven’t seen in a awhile and get a feel for the new and exciting. One of the things I loved the most was the fact that I saw many familiar faces from Drink and Draw Like A Lady–another reason why that party is the best! Tags and links to follow, as always if you see yourself and want me to tag you or otherwise recognize you, feel free to shout out.

Ladies, I do have a few of your business cards so I will be linking to you on your photos. However–do you see yourself in a photo and you’d like to have a twitter, facebook, or webpage shoutout? Let me know!
One of the things I love about this party is how it is before MoCCA Artfest, so therefore I get to see all of the great people I’ve met At the actual show, and I have context for talking to them. Live long, Drink and Draw Like A Lady! (and, with your help, they can!)
