Illustration Friday "SIGNS"
So I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed. It started when I went away for a week and to come back to being permanently signed out of my freebie image host. For the life of me, I can't sign back into Flickr. So, Photobucket? Oh sure. Why not? So what if it's a hurkin' life-sized image?! Bigger is better, right? The only problem is I'm like Rainman when it comes to changing things. Can you envision me hitting myself upside the head? Well do. Because Photobucket is no Flickr. ANYWAY. Here is my post for Illustration Friday's theme of SIGNS. No explanation necessary unless you are hitting yourself upside the head. Then you might need further direction. Email me if so. I will promptly respond in a few days or so. You should have a mild concussion by then and the doctor will order you Vicodin. It's a win-win situation. You get drugs. I get to put off answering a psychotic email.

If you can't get enough of "New Orleans" she can be purchased here here.

Illustration Friday "NEIGHBOR"
Ugh. SO very far behind. Yet, I really, really wanted to do this week's theme of "neighbor" at Illustration Friday. I love participating in the weekly challenge. However, I wish I REALLY had a chance to explore ALL of the other submissions, especially my favorite artists that I have a history or report with. I have such a great time viewing the other entries- Not to mention catching up with all my artist friends' newest art. I find them all so inspirational- Surprisingly enough most of these exceptionally talented people are approachable, kind, and complimentary. I always find it to be great motivation to receive compliments and feel a certain acclamation from fellow artists.

So, a special thank you to my artist friends who always leave their footprints and courteous homage. I wish you the best in your artistic endeavors. It is the good people like you who will succeed with your art.

Or, if you just feel nice, leave a message. Either way I feel the love and want you to feel the love.

je ne sai quoi
"Je Ne Sai Quoi" is my submission for this week. Are you feeling the "neighborly" vibe?
