Tinkerbell’s habitual tardiness
was beginning to put a damper
on her hot air ballooning.


The Illustration Friday theme this week is “Balloon.”

    How do ya do it, huh Sketch? Week after week after week after week…pure genius!! You’re starting to make everyone else look bad! I mean, c’mon, other people did balloons but they don’t look like yours. And the perspective, holy crap!!! I quit. I can’t even begin to share the stage with you. And you write ditties for crap’s sake…how, what the?
    You know I love you, right?????? 🙂

    Challenging perspective, but with the composition of the cat out of the square gives the perfect feeling of falling. Really good 🙂

  5. ohhh my goodness this is awesome Linda!! Love the perspective so much! I feel if I stretch my hand I might be able to help :o)
    I adore the way you draw kitties’ paws…. This is terrific!! :o)

    She’s almost fallen off the picture! I love the yellow glow under the balloon, the perspective and of course the kitty’s very worried look!x

    What a great perspective! I love their expressions, too!

  15. Susan Says:

    Impressive, gorgeous composition, I hope that cat isn’t too frightened, considering it’s over the viewer’s head. The bird is presumably in a position to enjoy itself

    Dear Linda
    Your work is really terrific. I am a college professor and would love to use some of your images in unpublished lectures for educational purposes only. Would you ever consider granting that sort of permission?
    Very best, Sarah
