The Long Way Home



I'd like you to meet two of my new BFF's: Corinna the chicken and Paulette the cow. Animals are an endless source of inspiration for me and where I live, farms are close by. You would think that these critters would be just flying from my brain and on to paper on a regular basis. Sometimes though, the idea can be simple, it's just pulling exactly the look you want and putting it on paper. While Paulette came trough rather easily in face, I wanted to play around with sticks for legs. Corinna however just was going to be stubborn. I found that with Corinna after hours of sketches, pictures and yes, the real thing...her face came from looking back on my own work. Maybe you will see a bit of my Jake the Turkey in Corinna. These two wild and crazy girls are available on TDIPT tonight. Do stop by and visit them along with the works of many other talented artisans.
