You know, this was just one of those pieces that I have no clue what led me to do it. I stumbled across a tiny sketch of this, maybe an inch big as I was sorting through old papers. It was actually on the same sketch as Pig and Cabbage so no telling where my head was at. But when I saw it I knew it had to be born, officially.

These two awesome dogs, Fremont and Mystic, have climbed more mountains that I can count. They roam the hills with their owners James and Sheila. For Sheila’s birthday, James ordered a special art piece featuring the pups. I wanted to highlight the mountains and the state flower of Colorado, the Columbine, to show where these guys live. Also, James is a terrific writer and is author of a few mountain climbing books. You can check him out over at his Mountainous Words website.

This all started with a pair of ponies that wore knitted sweaters. It reminded me of Jess, the original Cardigan Kitty (which I’ve also made a felty of) so I thought it would be fun to make other sweatered and/or patterned animals.

My Mama has a little Corgi named Abby. She’s a dainty princess that doesn’t know she’s a dog. When she goes out into the back yard she smiles as she sniffs the plants and flowers.

Pixel, one of my cats, loves to zoom around the house like he’s on fire. He’s got these featherweight air bones which makes him glide. It really is like he has jet packs on his back propelling him from place to place. One day out of the blue I called him Jet Pack Pixel and had to draw it.

This is epic y’all! The first Kirby Ink with…GLITTER.
I was inspired by The Bloggess, who just got her very own pony Pegasus (you’ll have to read to understand), so I made this for her as a, I guess you can call it, a welcome pony Pegasus party gift. But when I first saw it, I not only saw the sweet pony with wings, I saw the sweet pony with wings and leg warmers. Which led to the Flashdance theme. This is not your average My Little Pony folks. The glittery sweatshirt, leg warmers and headband just scream sassy! Whether this pony Pegasus is a boy or a girl I am not sure, but does it matter? It’s pure flair in the air.

This was a Christmas gift for my Aunt. She has these two funny sweet little dogs that were just begging to be drawn. I almost made them out of felt but loved the sketches so much that they stayed in ink. I also tried something a little different with this one, coloring only the rug and collars, leaving the pups in gray. I love how it made them stand out in a neat new way.

The latest donation to Operation Shower. This baby shower theme is called “Over the Moon”, coming from the poem Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon… I thought I’d offer up my vision of the kitty and the fiddle, in his pantaloons of glory. This should look cute in some nursery somewhere!

It’s the theme of the January Shower for military moms-to-be in San Diego. But it couldn’t JUST be a farm. Its also where all the suns grow. (You know we get a new one every day.) This one will be given away to one lucky mom in the crowd.
