Illustration Friday: Danger

Danger, danger!  Hurry, we must hide from the bomber mosquito!

I overheard a conversation between my kids the other day.  They were reminiscing and giggling over their younger days when it was time to go to sleep.  Trying to stay still, the younger one would say, "I'm a rock."  And the older one would say, "Then I'm a stick."  Then they burst out laughing.

Have a safe and incredibly fun Fourth of July!

Hi Bella,

Such a darling illustration and so cute hearing what your daughters said.
I am so glad to have winter here and the mosquitoes have died away - they were so bad over summer and had to go and buy mosquito nets.
Wishing you a wonderful fourth of July weekend dear friend

Oh my! A mosquito that big would be frightening! No? Hope you and yours are having a wonderful 4th of July weekend!

Where I grew up we had two creeks on either side of us, and in the summer when we slept the mosquitos would suck a pint of blood a night out of us. But they would get so gorged with plasma that they wouldnt be able to fly away. In the morning we would round them up and throw them against the garage wall to create a beautiful red Jackson Pollock painting. Okay... I kid... a bit.
I like this drawing. It appeals to my desire to turn into an inanimate object when threatened. That mosquito's got a lot of "kills". Wow... an Ace!

This is unprecedented. Never in six years have I ever missed a post, never left any post on this blog without a comment from me and now sadly, I counted at least three. The world is indeed falling apart.

Someday, when your children are all grown up, they will think or say something along this line "We have the best mother." If they are to count their blessings, the best would be having been born to their mother. You are awesome. Do you know that? You are absolutely wonderful - you, your art, your intellect, your friendship...

I read someone's description of your art as "creepy awesome" that you create monsters one would love to hug. Yep, that's awesome.

another visit. Love the shadows in this piece and coloring make it so dramatic and the feeling of night fall. Also the colors of the sky are gorgeous and full of mystique.

thank you for your comments. I love your perception. Both the spots on the yogini's shirt and the shy deer. You make me see things anew.

sweet weekend to you and yours Bella.

Holy cow, I've missed so many. Well, I can't say it enough - time just continues to fly by and I do not appreciate it!

That is one seriously dangerous looking (but really cool!) mosquito guy. I just love the tiny tiny owls!

I just want to tell you that I love you. Tsup!
