Thanks for visiting my blog, Shirley!! I just LOVE your illustrations - so sweet and whimsical. And I love that you live in the Bay Area - Daniel and I lived there for a few very happy years (got married there) in the late 80s, early 90s. We just love it there...
Haha, adorable. So many great critters.
Ditto what everyone else said! I'd follow anyone with a box of chocolates, too! But Fox is a cutey-pie without them. Your sweet, soft watercolor style is enchanting, Shirley. I love seeing what you produce. And thank you for your comment on my blog! Back-atcha!
