  3. This is a wonderful illustration. I know those mice are very happy that Kitty is not so skinny as to fit through those holes in the Jack-a-lanterns.

    Fantastic work!

  17. Awww thanks SO much for the compliments on my newest work!! Seriously.. that is what keeps me illustrating! How have you been? I have been all over the place too. We ended up not moving because we decided the economy is just to crazy right now. So instead I have been chicken farming lol! I just got 10 baby chicks the other day in the mail and am waiting on an incubator to arrive. I never thought chickens could be so much entertainment :D
    I still have dreams of becoming an illustrator though! I have been thinking of maybe trying to send in some work into greeting card companies. Have you done that? I bet you would do great! Nice to hear from you again!
