I stink!

Ok I stink! I promised myself that I would add to my blog and here it is already May and last time added to my blog was february. Shame on me!
Ok so I decided that I'm going to devote the next few days showing you what I have been up to!
First of all I am getting ready to (sometime in the near future) get started on another installment of Sparky's continuing adventures. Rick the writer has already told me more or less what the plot will be. But he's gonna give me one serious noogie if I tell, but I assure you it'll be a hoot!
Oh yea I just got back from Rio, Brazil. I will be showing pictures over the next few days, below is a photo of my boyfriend Ivan and I in front of the Christo Redento, the awesome statue of Christ that watches over the city!

Glad to be back on the Blog circuit!!! See ya tomorrow!

Volvo, where art thou?

Is that a 240 Volvo sedan waaaayy back there in the back ground? My boyfriend's Volvo always seem to make it's way into my drawings (see December 8th's posting) I hope my boyfriend doesn't turn around and buy one of those ugly SUV limos, that would get hard to draw after a while!

more teeeny Sparky

What's up with me uploading all these teeeeny tiny sketches of Sparky? That's gonna be my new theme. I think I'm gonna do a new series of Sparky thumbnails that actually FIT ON a thumbnail get it? Eh..never mind:P
Actually this was a sketch in the every early stages of the first book, I like the roughness of it this little sketch.

Why is Sparky so sad?

Sparky is teeeeeny tiny and sad. Well actually this is the first thumbnail for the first (I think) page of Sparky's Walk. I thought it was cute it's so teeeeeny. She's actually a bit impatient for her nightly walk! Hence the title of the book Sparky's Walk, get it? mind.

First Pass

I dug this out of my archives, the first sketch for cover of the first Sparky book "Sparky's Walk".

I was digging through my old sketches and I came across this sketch. I was like Wow! I think this is the first drawing that I ever did of Sparky!!! Holy cow! That's something. Remember, ladies and gentlemen when Sparky becomes a multi-million dollar franchise you saw it here first!
But really that is so cool. I like the fact that you can see all my little mistakes and white-out marks. I think I was working from a photo of the real Sparky. Cool stuff...

Web News!

Hi all!
Sparky's World has a home on my website! I want to announce the launch of Sparky's World! A fun place on my site where you can visit and explore Sparky's yard and meet Sparky and her friends! Check it out!
Right now Sparky is napping, but you can poke around and see if you can find where that naughty squirrel Floyd is hiding!
Visit Sparky often because I'm working on interactive games and activities and a Sparky-Cam!
Just go to (best to have the most recent Flash viewer) and click on Sparky.
See ya soon!

Up a tree

I've always loved Floyd the hyper-active squirrel, someday I wish to do a book just about him.
