The Illustration Friday theme is "Twist"- if this is allowable- here is a new twist on the "Headless Horseman" legend- "The Headless Fairy of Sleepy Hollow". You have to look carefully to witness the drama, and it is a little bit slower since the chase takes place on snails instead of horses- but it's so exciting to watch!

Take care- don't worry! Have a great week!

Hopefully this little guy would remain unseen by anyone taking a walk on a Summer night. Good camouflage could perpetuate the myth that fairies don't exist!
Have a great Summer day and night and week!

Covetted "Thinking Blogger Award"!

Emila Yosof awarded the "Thinking Blogger" award to me- Thank you Emila! She is a gifted, sensitive artist and I always know I will be impressed on many levels when I visit her blog. I don't know if you are like me but I seem to need encouragement almost constantly and Emila has often picked me up with her kind comments- I need to follow her example. I will now pass this award on to 5 of my top favorite artist/bloggers on the Illustration Friday venue- people who make me think ( I wish it was for more than 5).

willie baronet His black and white sketches are always bittersweet treats for the eye and the soul.. I can't believe he lives only 100 miles away in Dallas!

elizabeth siegel Her vivid illustrations always make me think- they make me think "I wish I'd drawn that!" Here is her site

The Unknown His cartoons are inspired- Something grabs me when I see his pictures and it is something unexplainable. His comic ideas are fantastic.

The Enigma I love the sentimental quality of her illustrations. I feel like I open a window and breath in the air of a memory when I view her art.

Sweet Pea Sensitive, beautiful illustrations that are by no means skin deep only.

Here is what you need to if you are tagged and if you accept the award... Chose 5 other folks you think deserve the award and write a post naming them and attach links to their blogs. Also display the award on your blog. Here is the link to the award site The Thinking Blog . Okay, now go blog, think and have fun! John Randall York AKA Random AKA Randy

Rejection, Dejection... equals Alone- It's a sad subject.

I hope you have a great weekend and a week that involves none of the above!

A mighty suitable topic for Illustration Friday if I do say so myself! I sketched this guy dressed as an Anime character called "Hansel" at the Anime convention in Dallas last weekend. Here is a link to more sketches A-kon 18

I hope you have a great weekend and week to follow!

Your Paradise

I'll never be pick of the week with my choices because I keep choosing a short list of subject matter but Autumn, childhood memories of Halloween- the misunderstanding of the world around me- daydreaming- that's paradise to me (to be able to fly like Peter Pan).
God bless you- have a wonderful week!
