A Fun Little Book

I went to Barnes and Noble the other night with Josh just to perk up and get out of the house for a bit… and found this little jewel (they have an Easter theme going on in the children’s book section):

I leave it on my desk next to (written by Boni Ashburn) Julia Denos’ I Had A Favorite Dress – great inspiration!  :)  
Tonight was catch up on some freelance work for Fadenrot that has been long overdue.  :)
Some sketches:
The last one I had put together in Photoshop really quick.  Anyway, I hope to get the okay to start painting these soon!
Tomorrow should be focusing on some storyboards for the Christmas cookie book I had posted before. :) I’m really excited to get this project going as well.
Meanwhile, Easter is soon arriving as well!  Lots of work on the horizon… and taxes tomorrow.  YAY.
:P
For some reason, too, I can’t seem to comment on blogs… I read a bunch of wonderful posts on some blogs I follow and tried to leave some comments and it will get to the point where it is about to post and then a second window opens that says “error.”  Not sure why this is as this has never happened before.
As I write this, Josh is listening to more of Philip Marlow on I-Tunes… “The Medium Was Rare”… HAHAHAH…. its really awesome.  It features a Fortune Teller that is a hoax… thus the pun.  We sometimes listen to this… they’re really great stories.  Nice to listen to while you work.  We tried to listen to some Sherlock Holmes but the voice that read the stories was really horrid.  It wasn’t voice-acting, just straight reading, so it was a bit harder to listen to as well.  I actually have this habit of working with a movie on in the background- mostly because I like listening to the story.  I don’t even watch.  Josh can’t work that way though so I only do it when he isn’t working in the studio at the same time.
Well, anyway, hope everyone is having a good night!
:)
Cheers!
