Winter Dreams

Deep in the mad scramble of preparing for my first foray into art/craft show territory, with the house around me filling with art and crafts for sale on the one hand and undisturbed clutter on the other, a phone call: was I available for a rush assignment?

Why yes, yes I was.

After all, they do say a change is as good as a rest, and waking up repeatedly at 4 a.m. feeling I should get up and make something was beginning to wear me down a little.

Here's the third iteration of the design, once I got the final dimensions confirmed. Colour version anon.

 So far so good, changes to be made were outlined, and among them a better look at the raccoon.  So here he is in colour.  Book comes out next month, I"ll post the full cover then.


  1. Wishing you much success in your art/craft show!

  2. As many times - lately- I have to say the bloggers are leaving this medium. But I am sure one day they will come back and realize that blogging is not actually so bad....:)
    Well, I hope the show was /is good, and your assignment is going very well.
    I left FB world- I keep still FB page- but I do not know ...maybe I will leave it too , maybe - one day- I will reopen FB again. Keep in touch :)

    1. Thanks, Linda and Ludek. Assignments went well, and got done on time. Things still piling up for the show in two weeks. Ludek, I enjoyed posting when I was doing Illustration Friday more consistently and looked forward to seeing the work of others, their comments about my work. Just blathering into empty space, not so much.


So glad you stopped by. I love to hear your thoughts. Drop me a line! Hurrah! Aino
