This is my first entry for Monday Artday.
The topic was your favorite things about Christmas. I try to focus on the calm instead of the hub-bub.
Soon after the bird feeder is filled, they come. There is a whole heirarchy among the birds and of course...the squirrels. Different birds go for different nuts and seeds. I found out that if I add walnuts to the mix, I'll see the woodpecker in about 1/2 an hour. And the only guy who scares the Bluejay is the squirrel.

This drawing is a condensed version of a one that I drew for a children's book I'm working on about a tale from India. In the tale, a rabbit thinks that the earth is breaking up and sends all the animals into chaos before he really knows what has happened. Similar to the "Chicken Little" story except the trouble comes from below instead of from above.

Susan Pevensie: Well, it can't be real, logically.
Professor Kirke: Logic? What are they teaching at schools these days?

He was ready for anything." -- Crockett Johnson, Harold's ABC.
With his crayon and his imagination, Harold can go anywhere.
As a child, I always thought that Harold had immense power and freedom through his purple crayon. Now, as an adult...I think so still. Go Harold!

"I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
*Lewis Carroll, 1865
This quote has been a great source of inspiration for me. I try to combine unrelated objects into one artwork and see if I can pull it off. Making the impossible, posible.
