Kids and Pups

I have always felt like children and pups are sort of made for one another, especially little boys. There is something about their rambunctious energy that ties them together. Kindred spirits - no doubt.

Ripple Blog Update

Within 12 hours of "A Mother's Love" being posted on the Ripple Blog, it was sold!! A special thank you to Josephine Noah of Albany, CA for helping clean up the Gulf. According the the IBRRC in Florida, it takes 3 bottles of Dawn Dishwashing Detergent to clean each bird. The $10 covers just the amount of those three bottles. I feel very proud that Josephine and I helped to heal at least one sea bird in trouble. Thanks to everyone for their support on this... As long as the spill is happening, Kelly plans on continuing the blog. So check back often and throw a stone of your own!

The Ripple Blog - Help the Wildlife in the Gulf Oil Spill

On Illustration Friday a few weeks ago the concept of RIPPLE was given, inspired by the Ripple Blog . This concept is the brainchild of established illustrator, Kelly Light, and is an incredible venue for illustrators and artists -- professional, student, and "hobbiest", of all ages, to create original artwork in order to help give relief to the disaster. Due to my big move to the Peninsula, and the sprained ankle that came with it... I wasn't able to make the IF deadline, but Kelly still featured my piece as #660 - A Mother's Love . It is for sale for pennies - the $10 donation. Also, I plan on including some extra goodies for whomever intends on purchasing this piece. Here is the concept in Kelly Light's words: "It's hard to make ripples in oil soaked water. But throw enough stones and you will! It's not about the politics or the corporation. It's about the animals. It's about not feeling helpless in the face of an overwhelming disaste
