Sparky's Dream

I created this little painting for the June Nibblefest contest ("In the Mist"), it also works for Illustration Friday's "Fog" theme:

"Sparky's Dream"

You know how sometimes when you’re sitting on a bench, pretending to read your homework assignment and you just can’t stay awake? Then you sort of doze off, but you’re not really sure anymore if you’re awake or asleep, and all of a sudden squids start barging out of the mist in droves? Don’t you hate when that happens?

Please search NFAC on eBay (starting the 20th of each month) to see all of the other Nibblefest entries!

Illustration Friday - Forgotten

This week's topic is "Forgotten," and I instantly thought of poor Little Red, who is sadly forgotten on the shelf:


"The Secret Garden"

I have a little garden
I keep it on a shelf
My garden is a secret
For no one but myself

Hurt Feelings

Why do there always have to be hurt feelings? Why can’t anything just be happy and good, and stay that way? Little Red used to like to pretend he was one of his plant friends, but sadly was left behind on the shelf. It sucks to be forgotten, doesn’t it.

Poor Little Red.

I'm going to try to create another piece for this theme too, if I have the time. The problem is that everything I can think of is really sad, and, well, sad is just so sad!

Illustration Friday - Baby

I've finally decided to participate in Illustration Friday - how could I not when this week's topic is "Baby"?

My piece shows the first meeting of Sparky and the squid (since I know you've all been wondering how it all started). Look, they've known each other since they were in diapers!
