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

I'm honored! First of all, where do you live? And also, how do I get the little icon of the award to put on my blog. I am not that html savvy. :-)

Hi Willie! I just did a right click and saved it (I'm on a pc) in my pics then inserted it just like we do with our illustrations as a small image. I live in Tyler- I'm glad you are posting the icon on your blog!

You are to kind.

Dash it all man! Your blog makes me think! I'm glad you'vw accepted- but I couldn't find your name so I just addressed you as "TheUnknown".

Great list! I got this from Emila too and I agree with her picks - meaning you - and I'm all for your picks too! Well done!

Hi JRY! Happy to read your post but mostly happy and grateful that you're not giving up this blog. Your picks are great! They are all great illustrators!
