Little Princess?

To counter our little pirate captain I had to do a drawing of a little princess. In Walt Disney World they are EVERYWHERE! All shapes, all sizes and the franchise does not seem to be softening! So here is my chubby little princess....

Please help me out if you or blue?

For Illustration Friday.....After spending a week in Walt Disney World and seeing all the little Captain Jack Sparrows scurrying around, I wondered why no one was dressed as that OTHER Captain....I think he is much cooler!

I also tried a color version....

First Day of Issue Signing and Ceremony

Here are some snaps from this years first day of issue Art of Disney stamp series. The ceremony is always fun and it is intimidating to see your work towering over you! Why Disney chose to do the release in August is beyond me since it was INCREDIBLY hot, but it all went smoothly and once I was sitting and signing (five hours this year!) it was OK.

I was blessed and thrilled to have my parents with me and my wonderful partner Jared. Jared and I are both in seersucker in that picture, but I am sure he is much cooler than I am!

The gentlemen with me in the signing photo are my Art directors from the USPS and from Disney. My AD from the USPS has told me that the stamps are all in the top ten best selling stamps of all time now and who knows.....there may be more to come!?

Something smells fishy!

Here are some fish I have been working on.

The top page is just some little studies I did of fish while the rest are some fun characters I did after associating myself with some more fish anatomy. We all kinda know what fish look like, but there are so many kooky looking ones that I thought it best to brush up! The bottom three are people I drew from life and then immediately turned them into fish. It was a fun exercise to do right there after I did the sketch from life. they are. I will try some in color next!
