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

A dusted off and polished version of an older image that I’m also using on my new website, (which is almost done… woo!)

Seemed to fit this week’s Illustration Friday theme. Killed two birds with one… er three birds… stones… oh, I don’t know.

(No birds were harmed in the making of this post.)

  18. Your wit is fabulous and your art is even more so. I borrowed your empty-head sketch and if you don’t want me to use it I’ll remove it but I needed an image today. I gave credit and a link to your blog. I hope lots of people come to check you out–which I haven’t even done very much yet but just wanted to warn you and ask permission–kind of backwards. I hope you will get your books published, I’d buy them for my grandchildren.

    Oh wait. I won’t post today’s post until I hear from you as really, that’s not right. So, I hope to hear from you soon. lws at byu dot net or just post your answer here as I’m being notified of follow-up comments.
