I am not a Chiwawa dog in Spanish

This little guy is a welsh corgi.  Of course he is.  Once upon a time a little girl wanted him strictly because she thought he was one of cute Mexican dogs they call a chiwawa.

He made a little ruffled bark and told her, “No, I am not a chiwawa dog.”  She took him
home anyway.  They lived happily ever after.

I have combined my  love of fonts; this one is Dino Kids, with pencil sketching and digital ribbon and bow, drawn on my Cintique by Wacom.  enjoy.  purchase

Little Darlin’

    I am following a little dream and a little experiment.  I’m matching vintage songs with my drawings, sketches and cartoons.  I’ve been wanting to do this forever.  So now is the time….here we go.  My hope is that when people of a certain age… 60 and above, see the verse, they will associate it with the melody.  Hopefully, they won’t be able to get the song out of their heads.

I need to find me a cat, design

find-a-cat-leaves

I am very happy with this drawing.  Maybe things are falling into place with this effort.  The leaves are a watercolor that I scanned and brought into photoshop.  The cats were added in layers in line art and colored in.  Everything was done after that on my tablet. Hey, I only crashed Ps once, and I think that’s because I got distracted with a visitor and had a feeling it would happen.  I was away too long and by the time I hit save, I knew it was too late.  But I did not lose too much as I just had to paint in more of the pale turquoise leaves.  This happened once before for the same reason.  my fault.   ALSO, as  time goes on I will learn how to manage things better and make smaller files.  I am getting more and more comfortable working with text.

This is kind of new territory for me and it’s really been fun. Here is the drawing on products.  and boy this product line is getting bigger every day. what fun!

Let me know what you think about this dear readers.  I would love feedback.  I am getting closer to my goal.
