Illustration Friday: Wool

Baa.
That's as close as I get to drawing a neck.



OMG, something swallowed my squeaky toy!






Emmy & 9 take Frog Hollow by storm with their rousing rendition of Wooly Bully.
Rock on, sistahs.

Good night, everybody!  Drive safe and remember to tip your waiter!

HAHAHAH! I'm sorry, I cannot get over the FROG. Hee hee. Can you imagine, you're strolling in the desert and you run across one of these? hahahaha! Ah, nature.
Your new work is so charming. I love the rock band! Maybe the frog can sing back-up. hahahah! (When my dogs heard that frog they went nuts.) xoxo!!

Hello! I recently just started a youtube Korean food channel, EasyKoreanFood, where you can learn how to make fast & easy Korean food! It would mean the world to me if you could check it out because I'm just starting out! Thanks!

Your little girls are delightful...whether they're turning a fox into a sheep with dandelions, or waking up the 'neighbors' with their musical talent! So imaginative!

Carin Bramsen said...

I'm holding up a lighter in tribute. I adore these girls, and the color and detail in Frog Hollow. Only wish I were there right now. I know that daisy goes to 11.

Tammie Lee said...

Hi Bella,

Such delightfully darling illustrations today, the sweetness of your cute girls and one sporting my favourite houndstooth.
Do you know over in NZ we do not tip - only sometimes if the service is really good, we do. It is not common practice.

Happy weekend
hugs
Carolyn

Thank you for thinking of me when you drew that neck :) I thought the girl's name was Bea, and then I read it correctly. Ha! That wolf is patiently waiting to eat that lovable human kid. I hope not.

Of course who would not love Emmy and 9. Their names alone are adorable. Are those chocolate frogs? They sure look delicious. Dearest Bella, that illustration is wonderful!!! I love everything about it. 9 is really rocking it and Emmy's fern piano is the cleverest of all the clever things your beautiful wonderful artistic mind created for this illustration. I hope you are having a lovely Saturday.

Tsup!

Bella, this is so adorable as usual! SO full of fantasy...the rock'g sistahs are really rocking :)
Hope you and your girls are doing Great!

Elizabeth Rose Stanton said...

Oooooo...these are so sweet! I LOVE your little red frogs!

Ted Blackman said...

YIKES! See what happens when you cross a chameleon, a blowfish, and a latex dog toy? Could you imagine the cacophony that would ensue if they attacked a beach like grunion!

Well, he IS kinda cute, but look don't touch, children!

Ted Blackman said...

Hey I love your rock concert piece. Who wouldn't. But I keep looking at that dandelion that's missing it's top. That's gonna go to seed all over the lawn.

Ted Blackman said...

Your comment cracked me up, Bella. I remember when I was a kid in class the teacher wrote a sentence on paper and sent it around the room which everyone had to re-write before giving it to the next person. When the last kid read it, it was a completely cryptic message.

k.h.whitaker said...

OMGoodness! I love these, but I adore the second one. Soooo fun. I really love the instruments. Ahhh,I just love it all ;)

Indigene Theresa said...

Ana M.F. said...

I love the flowers as musical instruments, it's a beautiful idea, Bella.
That frog looks like a real life pokemon!!

Emily said...

cute froggies everywhere -- Squee.

Amy C said...

oh adorable wooly fluffy snuggly cuteness.
Seriously is that frog for reals? that's just too cute for words - I can hardly take it.
Love those gorgeous girls jamming out they are totally grooving that groove.

Michaele Razi said...

Fantastic as usual! Loves!

A Cuban In London said...

Beautiful drawing. Baaa (that means "many thanks", by the way! :-D).

Greetings from London.

laughingwolf said...

bella, you continue to rock, with every drawing you post... rock on! :)

Ann Pilicer said...

Beautiful! Love it! With or without necks? hee hee :D

Introverted Art said...

wow living your illustrations!

Andrew Finnie said...

Now if I tip my water I'll get wet Bella, you can't fool me. Gee, wow and whizzas that one of the guitar playing is something special, eh? And I;m not just saying that so you like me or anything. And the look of joy on the face of the girl listening is something to be hold. Did I ever tell you I learnt French? Ther were a lot of things in it I didn;t understand but a lot of the time the daughters of the actress were behind the church in the field with the cows. And the little boys books were on the table and the window was over on the wall. Just thought you'd like to know that. Hugs from 'ere :)

Mauricio Abril said...

That's a great concept for the concert! You have an interesting style to your art, Bella, which is great. I like the simplicity in some of your other IF illustrations as well :)

Shirley said...

Goodness gracious..your illustrations take me to another place, Bella! It's so good to see your wonderful work again..I've been so amiss at visiting..my apologies! Why are necks so hard to draw? I too have problems with them..but I like those puffs of wool...yay! And goodness, I'm singing right along with your little sweeties too. Have a wonderful March my friend!!! Hugs!

Cindy D. said...

Oh my gosh, so much cute awesomeness. But first, squeaky frog is hilarious! My first thought is that can't be real! But the world is a strange place. Squeaker toy indeed!

Can't say which I love more - the serenity of dandelions and an adorable fennec fox, or the whole business of rocking out in Frog Hollow. I may lean toward Frog Hollow because those little red frogs are so funny! At *least* the second cutest frogs in the world. And it's so full of rockin energy and beautiful detail.

Angel said...

Ohmygosh, the frog! Haha!
I'm in love.

As usual, you're illustrations full of whimsy, happiness and beauty. The rock band is super awesome.

Stopping in to say hello. I haven't participated in IF (yet) this year but I've thought of you often. Wondering if you've made it back to Kauai or made it through the yuckiness of the yuck with a smile on your face. I hope you and yours are well and enjoying a sunny Spring.

Angel said...

Oh man, I meant "your" illustrations.
