Sunday Sketches - Jolly Jake & Pirates!

Happy Sunday Sketches!  It's another wonderful week of planning, creating new illustrations and lots of studying as the Fall semester begins to wind down.  As the days fly by, I'm getting excited about wrapping up another successful semester, wonderful new art projects and of course - getting married!  Woot!  :)

Jolly Jake and little bear, Blue, are on yet another adventure.  Uh huh.  They're pirate hunting!  This is the second children's book cover I'm designing for this series.  The first one is now available on Amazon, so make sure to check it out his jungle adventures.  Elleanor Bird is a fabulous children's story writer and I'm so blessed to be a part of this journey.

OK.  Off to see what everyone else has been up to!  Happy weekend to everyone!  :)
