  3. I have just got in from work Shirley and opened up my blog to see your wonderful illustration! SO sweet. Great carrot base for them to land on too.
    I loved the Jetson's and the Flintstone's, I think they came from the same studio? Such totally timeless humour!
    Take care, Jane x

  16. Hee hee! This is the coolest! Thanks for making us smile out here in blogland with your cheerful art! The theme song is now playing in my head - I'll be happily humming "Meet George Jetson..." all day today! Now, can you send Rosie over? Wouldn't that be great to have a robot to help with the housework? Happy Monday to you! :o)

  27. Put another one down for the carrot house! Hey Shirley! You really made my evening. My anticipation grew as I clicked on your thumbnail. I love the surprise you always have hiding behind it. This is delightful. Full of fun! I always thought Elroy was cool. I wanted gadgets and robots like he had. I always thought that when I grew up, we'd be flying in our cars. I'm still waiting :o) Thanks for turning on the Shirley light this evening. You made my day! so clever and talented you are.

  53. I sure remember the Jetsons (and their cool modes of transportation!) Yours is adorable!
    I haven't been posting (or visiting) much lately, so I read some of your previous posts that I had missed and wanted to comment on your post about the conference you attended. First, thank you for your detailed description, I find these smaller conferences very informative and a great way to connect with other illustrators. I like the format of this one, lots of opportunities for illustrators to get feedback on their work.

    But I also wanted to let you know that I think your work is terrific: cute indeed, but also warm, delicate, creative and charming. I've been to events similar to yours, where one has a chance to have a portfolio review or some one on one time with an agent or art director. And it is a personal thing, for sure. I could see how my work just didn't seem to resonate with some of them. I would show the same material to two different people and get very different reactions. So Vanessa is right, keep doing what you love -- you can see by all the comments you get how much people enjoy your work! It's just a matter of time until you find the right agent/editor/art director!

  58. Golly gosh....I LOVED the Jetsons!! :) Adore these watercolour paintings, Shirley. OH so very cute! :) Hugs

  59. Hi Shirley, I wanted to ask you some questions about watercolor. I wanted to buy some watercolors and then when I bought the brush, one of them cost $120.00!!! Are the brushes that expensive? Ugh! Is these something less expensive for a beginner? Wishing you a good week.

    ReplyDelete
  60. That is so very cute. I love their little carrot house. I often wonder where are the flying cars we were all promised? :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love that bunny looking below. That would be me. I love seeing the world from a different perspective while someone else is handling the driving! :)

    ReplyDelete
