Lucky Elephant

Making wacky stuffed creatures is fun especially when there's an occasion to do so. Here's what I call a lucky elephant that I made for my friend's future baby. What stuffed elephant wouldn't want to be loved by a cute little baby? I can already picture the drool all over it.

Baby Rain

Babies are raining all around me! First my cousin, next up, my friend, then after, my sister. Makes life so sweet.

Birthday Blues?

It's my mom's birthday this Sunday. It's been my tradition to make a piece of art she'll find meaningful, relevant and funny. So let me say first that, last year, I was painting a picture of her beloved cat, Bisou, for her birthday. Needless to say, work deadlines got in the way and I wasn't able to complete it. I think I made a card and bought her some nice clothes instead. Then sadly, just a few months ago poor Bisou passed away. The painting remained incomplete.

So it's my mom's birthday this Sunday and this time I started and completed a new portrait of Bisou. It's meaningful, yes, relevant, sure, funny, no. If it doesn't go over well, maybe the cool clothes she'll also be getting from me will offset the lack of humor.
