Maui Sunset

The new www.illustrationfriday.com theme is glow.  And I know most people are probably picking Christmas themed art with warmth, sparkles and light.  Not me.  I decided on a Maui Sunset.  Hawaii is president Obama's Christmas choice after all. 

 Maybe I should do more Christmas themed illustrations.  Although I did a whole book about the baby Jesus and his animal admirers just last year.  But if left to my own devices glowing and bright might be pushing it.  Here is what I might do.....  Crazy Cat Christmas, The Night Before The Tree Fell On Santa Paws, The Santa Paws Clause and The Cat Who Ate My Christmas Cookies.  Oh my!  Plus the sequel, The Cat Who Puked On Christmas. Yes, those illustrations sound like me. 

Just saying.

   Have you checked out all the amazing black and white art over at the 2013 Tomie dePaola Contest ?  Illustrators were asked to depict scenes from Little Women, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer or The Yearling.  I chose The Yearling.  Mine is somewhere towards the bottom.  Be sure to stop by and check it out!

I never realized that such cute piggies could make me feel like Christmas! You are so talented, Sharon, I think you could make anything look like a party! :-)

Having seen a luau once, I'm not sure those piggies should be lookin' so happy. They are CUTE and glowing, however ;)

I love the piggies. I think they look like they are dancing in nice warm sand! And I hear music.
I know your stories would be wonderful- just wonderful!
