Sunday Sketches

I've been working pretty steady on custom orders for Christmas as well as the several children's books I'm currently illustrating.  It's been a great treat and joy to be able to do something almost full-time in which I love.  I feel utterly blessed to be in the place I'm currently at right now in life.  I've got a great husband, wonderful step-children, a cozy place to live...and much more.  Humbled.

Above is a little illustration I was hired to do for a little boy who is about to be born.  I felt this was so fitting and would last a lifetime hanging on the wall in his room.

Wishing everyone a fantastic Sunday!  I'm looking forward to really catching up with peeps today.
