Happy Valentine’s Day (soon)

Too early? Eh. Here’s an illo I did for Highlights again. I was wracking my brain trying to think of a pink animal that could have a V-Day dance, and ultimately my wife came up with Flamingos (not sure why I didn’t just Google “pink animals” because that’s pretty much the first hit. Laziness?)

Flamingos are already a clumsy animal to draw, not to mention while dancing. So that was challenging. But all of their weird angles left a lot of great opportunities for creative hiding spaces. Enjoy!vday_flamingo_WEB

Happy Halloween!

Hey now! I did this Word Search Illustration for Highlights mag. They asked for some of the lesser used creatures of Halloween, which was fun, because how many times do we need to see Frankenstein and Dracula and the like? (Stay tuned for my Frankenstein and Dracula Crossword Puzzle coming next year! Seriously.)monster_word_search_for_web
