The theme at Illustration Friday this week is "instinct". I think most of us have a certain amount of empathy and compassion - so more than others - and I also think that we instinctively want to help others if we see that they are in need. Also happening this week (and continuing ...) is a special etsy shop set up by compassionate artists to raise money to help people who lost their homes and so much more in the Aussie bush fires. Please visit the store here. All proceeds go to the Australian Red Cross. To date they have raised $15,000! All art is donated and all shipping costs paid by the donating artists so please check it out. An etsy team that I belong to - metsy, mixed media etsy artists - are donating houses that we decorate each in our own unique style.

C e l e b r a t e !!!

I celebrate the fact that I get to do a lot of mostly fun stuff for my work. I work at home. I make my own schedule for the most part. Lucky me! Certain people can't understand that and just think that drawing and networking is playing. Hmphh!

Two weeks in a row, yikes!!!

Okay, I need to build up my stock images so I've come back to Illustration Friday because having the topic every week helps me focus a bit better. So this week's theme is "time". Hope you like it!

I'm still here!

I haven't participated in Illustration Friday in ages. Too busy doing stuff for Etsy and shows and of course my gripping addiction to ATCs and mail art!
This is for IF topic "Flawed". A flawed cupcake tastes just as good as a perfect cupcake!
