cake inspiration

My brother blogged in his blog today about a cake competion he had stumbled upon. Nothing inspires me more than fancy cakes! Here are some of my favorites:

Yes, that last one is an iBook. How fabulous is that???

    fun character designs

    I've recently done some funny character sketches of what my little dog and cat would appear like if they were my human daughters. Yes, maybe I'm weird. :) It's a fun excercise though.

    Here's an old sketch of my animals as animals:

    and now as people (they've switched places, my dog is now the little annoying sister)

    This was a really quick idea, but I like Natasha's beat-up doll as a prop, and Snooper's icecream cone. (She's a little chunky.)

    My in-laws have three dogs and two cats, and my parents have two cats... this was really fun so I think I'll try it with them too.

    Illustration Friday: Insect

    This wasn't my original illustration, but I was playing around in photoshop, and did this butterfly piece, and realized it fit the theme. :) So here it is!

    Another fun picture.

    I was mostly experimenting with creating different textures using the different brushes. In other words, I'm totally procrastinating on "real" work. :P

    Just a fun little drawing I did. I wasn't going to post this, but, eh--why not? :)

    sleepy dreams

    Every night this is how I sleep. Curled up on 1/4th of the bed, and being squashed by furry animals.
