illustration friday - memories

Our foster dog is singing the blues today because he got a little snippity-snip yesteday and is now only left with memories, ouch!

Our kitten is a little smug today and enjoying the much subdued puppy.

foster dog

illustration friday - routine

Our entire routine has been turned upside down with the addition of our new foster dog. He is such an affection hound and wants attention all the time. I haven't been able to get through my morning ritual of coffee and crossword without interruption.

The wonderful, awesome, terrific and extremely talented Mônica at Art | Books, Arte | Livros has nominated the awed, honored, stunned and quite frankly tickled pink Rapture Pet Sitting for an award. Mônica has been so inspirational and supportive, I cannot thank her enough and all the other artists who give me an inkling of hope that I may rise to their stature.

Thank you

Here are the rules:
1-Display the logo on your blog
2-Link back to the person you received the award from.
3-Nominate 7 other blogs
4-Put links of those blogs on yours
5-Leave a message on their blogs so they know they've been nominated.

Now for my picks, which are by no means the only ones, in no particular order,

ônica at Art | Books, Arte | Livros
Val at ValGal Art
Krisztina at Sketchpause
Linda at Sketched Out
Connie at Drawing to an End
Laurel at Studio LoLo
Bella at Bella Sinclair

illustration friday - detach

Ummm, tastes like chicken - please detach that cat from your mouth and back away slowly.
We are fostering again and had a little "incident" this morning with some very enthusiastic dogs and one very pissed off cat. She is hiding quietly in her room plotting her next move.

Olympic fever

I was trying to catch a little of the Olympic rowing today, but all I could find was beach volleyball.

Wow, what's up with the women's uniforms or should I say, WHERE are the women's uniforms! I think they should rename the event "Wedgieball"
. Then when the men came on, well, they were practically wearing burqas. Throw a girl a bone here, a little ankle, maybe an elbow.

Anyway, as a nod to the bunnies over at Sketched Out, which all gold medals winners, here are my playboy bunny volleyball players in their "official" Olympic uniforms.

illustration friday - sail

Here's a quick doodle, couldn't really get what was in my brain onto the paper, sigh, I think I'll give it another try later.

We love sailing and are very lucky to live so close to the bay which is especially beautiful when all the colorful spinnakers are out.

Happy 8.8.8 to everyone, is that infinity cubed? Lots-o-beach weddings today, best wishes to y'all.

illustartion friday - poof!

I just had a great idea for illustration friday, then "poof!" it vanished just as quickly as it appeared.
I'm not sure if it's old age or the jackhammers outside my window.

Since we just returned from a trip, I'm going green this week and recycling an old illustration.

illustration friday

since the girl wouldn't give me her email password I don't know what the word is for this week's illustration friday. I came up with this, err, well it sort of came up by itself.
